Former US President Donald Trump is relaxed and "feels happier" in civilian life than he did in office a former senior aide says.
In an interview with the UK's Sunday Times Jason Miller, Trump's former campaign strategist, said the former President is not worried about his upcoming impeachment trial and is enjoying not having to run the world.
Trump's impeachment trial for allegedly inciting the violent storming of the US Capitol at the start of this year begins this week.
It is the first time a President has been impeached twice, but Miler told the Sunday Times Trump is not concerned.
"He is going to be acquitted," Miller told the Sunday Times. "There is no real scenario in which he is going to be convicted, so the pressure is completely off."
Trump refused to attend President Joe Biden's inauguration, after claiming he lost the election due to voter fraud - claims that have not been stacked up.
He has been relaxing in his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, enjoying some family time Miller said.
According to Miller, Trump is not stewing on his defeat but "feels happier" than he did in the White House, and is pleased to no longer have the weight of being the President of the United States on his shoulders.
"Only 45 other people in US history have experienced what it is like to have the world on their shoulders, and to be able to exhale, knowing that it's not all on you for the first time in four years," he told the Sunday Times.
Trump was banned from most forms of social media after the Capitol riots, including his favoured platform Twitter.
In a separate interview with right-wing website Breitbart Miller said his old boss may reemerge on social media.
'Whether that's joining an existing platform or creating his new platform, there are a number of different options and a number of different meetings that they've been having on that front. Nothing is imminent on that,' Miller told Breitbart.
