Donald Trump remains a powerful presence in American politics despite being deplatformed and defenestrated. The same goes for the people who worked for his administration.
That’s why Insider embarked over the past several months on a project to track down as many members as possible from Team Trump who served in an official capacity between January 2017 and January 2021.
Some of them you’ll surely remember, like ex-White House senior advisors Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon. Others made it through the last few years without becoming household names.
Ultimately, we identified 327 Trump alumni for our comprehensive database. There, we break down who are now the big shot lawyers, high-powered lobbyists, aspiring authors, and political consultants already busy trying to win elections for MAGA-minded candidates in 2022 and beyond.
Our project also highlights who from the Trump orbit ended up building new political entities aimed at sinking President Joe Biden’s agenda and enacting controversial changes to election laws that favor Republicans.
We pinpoint the location of a couple of the biggest names from the Trump Cabinet who were mired in scandals during their time in the administration but now are trying to move on to new jobs. And we’ve identified the ex-Trump staffers who are now serving as aides to members of Congress, plus a couple of former administration officials who have become elected officials themselves.
Of course, many Trump aides also are acting like they don’t want to be found at all. At least not yet.
