The UK’s Sunday Times reports:
On inauguration day, Donald Trump left Washington on the presidential plane, Air Force One, to the sound of Frank Sinatra’s My Way. The song begins: “And now the end is near” — but is it? Trump fully expects to survive and thrive politically after his impeachment trial for inciting the violent storming of the US Capitol opens on Tuesday in the Senate.
“He is going to be acquitted,” Jason Miller, Trump’s senior adviser, told me confidently last week. “There is no real scenario in which he is going to be convicted, so the pressure is completely off.” Far from raging in exile, Miller revealed, the former president “feels happier” than he did in the White House and is pleased no longer to be on social media.
The New York Post reports:
“He’s said that not being on social media, and not being subject to the hateful echo chamber that social media too frequently becomes, has actually been good,” Miller told the outlet. “That’s something the First Lady [Melania] has backed up as well. She has said she loves it, that he’s much happier and is enjoying himself much more,” the ex-aide said.
