Many Americans are missing the leadership and members of the Trump administration. The current White House is very clearly taking a polar opposite direction in countless regards.

Members of the Trump administration may be out of the White House; however, this doesn’t mean that they won’t have any involvement in the political scene. As time passes, former Trump officials are gradually taking up new political endeavors.

Former Vice President Mike Pence is a great example of this. While Pence is no longer serving in the White House, he’s moved onto initiatives that involve advancing the conservative movement, Breitbart News confirms.

The Latest Endeavors of Mike Pence

Yesterday, Marc Short, the chief-of-staff to Pence, informed that the former vice president is working to build conservativism and the Republican Party. Short also explained that Pence’s “roots,” politics, and philosophical outlooks are grounded with the GOP.

In the spirit of building conservativism and the Republican Party, Pence has joined the Heritage Foundation and Young America’s Foundation (YAF). The former vice president’s role within the Heritage Foundation will be as a senior visiting fellow, while Pence will be the Ronald Reagan Presidential Scholar of YAF.

On Friday morning, YAF announced that Pence will launch a podcast under their umbrella. During Pence’s tenure as vice president, he delivered remarks before a YAF audience as well.

Work to be Done at All Levels

The progression of conservativism and the GOP is something that requires work at all levels. Right now, Republicans in Congress are working on regaining power in at least one chamber, come the midterms. A GOP that controls either the House or the Senate will be in a much stronger position than Republicans are now.

President Trump will also play a role in the advancement of the Republican Party. Not too long ago, the former president met with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in Florida. During this sit-down, both parties agreed that Trump would help Republicans regain control of the House in 2022. The 45th president’s influence still carries significant weight within the GOP and McCarthy knows this.
