VVD member Mark Verheijen de Venlo expects Donald Trump’s departure from Washington to be final. “He became more and more alone.”
Verheijen was invited to L1mburg Central on Wednesday. De Venlo is more than average interested in American politics, he has also written a book about it.

The VVD member himself was a deputy and commissioner for several years. He has seen how Trump has become increasingly lonely in recent months. Loyal followers like Vice President Mike Pence have finally turned away from him.
Trump has hinted that he will run for office again in 2024 and told his supporters “this is just the beginning.” But Verheijen doesn’t expect the 74-year-old businessman, TV personality and former president to return.
For his successor Joe Biden, the 46th President of the United States sworn in on Wednesday, it will be difficult to reconcile the divided country, said Verheijen.
“Biden won’t be able to build a bridge to fanatic Trump supporters anytime soon. They will continue to pick up on Trump’s story of the big election lie.”
