New efforts to refocus and retain the MAGA are underway, with former hardline Trump immigration adviser Stephen Miller rolling out a new group to put pressure on the Joe Biden agenda and prominent ex-White House aides volunteering for a new advocacy group by Mike Pence.
Miller, who helped design and sell Trump’s “ zero tolerance policy ” at the border, organizes to use the courts and public pressure to try to control Biden with what he calls “ opposing the radical left agenda. ” .
He told the Wall Street Journal that anything “we think is illegal is fair game.”
Former Vice President Mike Pence has formed a new group to promote the Trump-Pence agenda. He is considered a candidate for president in 2024. Trump raged against him in the run-up to the election figures and shot him in a January 6 tweet
His effort comes a day after he shoots out a photo of himself and Trump, taken in Trump’s Mar-a-Largo office, which Trump has used to issue a flurry of fiery statements calling him attacked both Biden and the media, ‘waking up’ companies. while plotting his own political future.
Pence, who infallibly praised Trump during their four years together in the White House, is launching a new advocacy group called Advancing American Freedom – and on the advisory board are several figures who advised Donald Trump in the White House.
Among those behind the effort, which coincides with Pence’s return to the political scene with an event this month at the South Carolina battlefield, are former President Counselor Kellyanne Conway and former chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow.
Those backing the effort aren’t necessarily signing up for a potential Pence run for the White House in 2024 – and former President Donald Trump, who doesn’t rule out his own run for re-election – has given the group his public blessing.
Trump himself praised the effort, the Washington Examiner reported in a story describing Pence’s plans – though Trump’s brief statement notably didn’t specifically mention Pence for praise.
Trump’s statement said, “ It was the most successful first term in American history. Nice to see Mike highlight some of our many achievements! ‘
Pence’s attempt to applaud his tenure and Trump’s accomplishments as Trump continues to consolidate his own influence in the Republican Party, despite the Capitol uprising that led to his second impeachment and video trial of rioters who held up ‘Mike Pence’. . ‘
Also, former White House budget director Russ Vought, who tweeted the day after the January 6 uprising in the Capitol, said he was “ deeply saddened by the violence and loss of life in the Capitol yesterday. ” We believe in the rule of law and must adhere to it. ‘

Tensions between Trump and Pence came to the fore during the uprising at the Capitol
His last tweet came the day before Trump left office, where he said it had been the “ honor of a lifetime ” to serve as director of Trump’s office and management and budget.
Another financier is former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who said on Fox News that he was “ furious ” after the riot, where MAGA supporters occupied the convention office he once held and called the perpetrators “ barbarians. ”
I was furious. I’m furious, ”Gingrich told the network.
Conway has been advising Pence since he left office in late August 2020, having advised Trump since managing his campaign in 2016.
Others on the group’s board include Jim DeMint, former Chairman of the Heritage Foundation, a former Conservative Member of the House, David McIntosh, President of Club for Growth and former Senator Rick Santorum, who, like Pence, is also served in the House.
“Advancing American Freedom plans to build on the success of the past four years by promoting traditional conservative values and promoting the successful policies of the Trump administration,” Pence said.
Trump angered Trump in the days leading up to the Congressional rally to count electoral votes, as Pence opposed Trump’s attempt to overturn state-certified votes.
Trump tweeted as the uprising in the Capitol was raging, “ Mike Pence did not have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our constitution, giving states a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones they were previously required to certify. USA demands the truth!
