Former President Trump was caught on video by a spectator two days ago on Jan. 27 playing a round of golf surrounded by several men. When he was praised for his service to the country, the president gave a surprising reply.
The man videoing the president said, “Mr. President, Thank you for your service, Sir.” as Trump approached. He was heard to reply, “Thank you very much, we haven’t finished yet,” leaving social media fans wondering what his comment meant, as reported by DavidHarrisJr.
The man videoing replied “good,” while another commented, “exactly.”

It’s not known what Trump was referring to with his comments, but his fans will be sure to give it some thought. Trump has rarely been seen or heard from since he left office.
Trump met with GOP leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday at Trump’s residence Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. The former president has agreed to work with McCarthy to help the Republican Party become a majority in the House.
The two “discussed many topics, number one of which was taking back the House in 2022,” said a statement from the ex-president’s office. “President Trump’s popularity has never been stronger than it is today, and his endorsement means more than perhaps any endorsement at any time.”
McCarthy has changed his stance towards Trump, who he said previously had to bear some responsibility for the Capitol riot.
But a week ago McCarthy said, “I don’t believe he provoked it if you listen to what he said at the rally” before the attack.
Thursday, his office released an upbeat statement about the meeting, saying Trump is “committed to helping elect Republicans in the House and Senate in 2022.”
Republicans lost control of both the White House and Senate in the 2020 elections. The Senate appears ready to acquit Trump in February when it holds an impeachment trial on a charge that Trump incited the riot at Capitol Hill on February 20.
Last week Trump’s team announced that he had opened up “The Office of the Former President,” and Trump endorsed Sarah Sander’s run for Governor of Arkansas.
Republican House members who voted with Democrats for impeachment may find themselves with a challenging task to win in the primaries next year, as they may face Trump-backed challengers.
Recent surveys indicate Trump’s approval rating is rising after it hit a low after the riot.
A Morning Consult/Politico poll this week said 50% of Republican voters favor Trump playing a “major role” in the future of the party.
