Rollins said the institute will continue the “transformative changes” of the last four years and fight to save America.
“We know what the insider approach is, it’s failure. It’s the outsider approach that wins, and we saw it first hand. We’re working to save the soul of this country, and the America First Policy Institute will be the heart of that effort. We are beholden to no one but the American people,” Rollins stated. “But we can’t do it alone, so please join us and let us together continue the fight for the greatest country in the history of the world.”
Former Trump White House advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump will be informal advisers to the new group.
