The Patriot Party of the United States is a hypothetical political party that, according to The Wall Street Journal, former President of the United States Donald Trump has privately proposed starting during his final days as president in January 2021 in order to have a continued influence on American politics.[1] Trump had also suggested while leaving the presidency that his "movement" was "only just beginning".[2]

According to Zignal Labs, a media intelligence platform, after The Wall Street Journal's report was published, the search terms "Third Party", "New Party", and "Patriot Party" spiked online[3] and from January 19–20, 2021, there were a total of 131,000 mentions of the Patriot Party across social media, websites, broadcast media, traditional media.[3] The idea also gained interest on Facebook and Twitter, with one "Patriot Party" Twitter account gaining 95,000 followers and one Facebook account gaining 16,000 likes both on January 20.[3]

According to an article in Newsweek, the name 'Patriot Party' has already been trademarked to Donald Magyar[4] and was previously affiliated with two socialist parties in America - although the use of the name for the socialist parties lapsed in the 1990s.

According to The Guardian, Donald Trump has disavowed association with the Patriot Party,[5] reporting that Trump's spokesperson Jason Miller had told Axios: “We are not supportive of this effort, have nothing to do with it and only know about it through public reporting.”[6] Donald Trump has filed a notice with the American Federal Election Commission to disavow association with the Patriot Party.[7]
