If reports are true that former President Donald Trump is interested in the possibility of starting a new political party to challenge both Republicans and Democrats, what might that look like?

Trump has been consulting advisers about the idea since the closing days of his presidency, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal. He reportedly wants the party to go by the name of “Patriot Party,” but it is unclear as of this time just how serious he is about getting it off the ground. A top campaign aide denied the ambitions on Monday, but the MAGA Patriot Party filed with the Federal Election Commission, according to journalist Markie Martin the same day.
