The American Nationalist Party (Also known as the National Party, The ANP, or the Great American Party) is the name of a political party located in the United States. The Party was formed before the 2020 elections, after Paul Ryan and other Republicans, ousted Trump for control of the Party, forcing Trump and his supporters to leave. The Party is the third most popular political party behind of the Democratic and Republican Parties, and ahead of the Green and Libertarian Movements.
Rise of Donald Trump
In June of 2016, Republican Leaders awarded Donald Trump the Presidental Nomination after months of bickering back and forth between members of the Party. In October, The Trump Tapes resulted in many politicans renouncing their endorsement of Trump.
This resentment of Trump would only grow bigger after the first year of his presidency as evidence suggested Russia had influenced the outcome of the 2016 election. Finally in 2018, Paul Ryan seized control of the Republicans, and force Trump and his supporters to leave the Party, resulting in the formation of the National Party.
The Nationalist Party helped spearhead the Alliance of European Nationalist and Freedom Parties with Marine Le Pen and several other European Nationalist Movements. Among the Parties regional partners, was United Russia.
Lacking a strong voice, the Party went through several leaders. Donald Trump maintained his popularity and influence, but age crippled his ability to run the party as its leader.
In 2030, a young activist named Ben Harris (Born Ben Harrison) took control of the Party and became its next leader. Harris rallied for Trump in the 2016 Election and adopted many of his hardcore stances on issues varying from Immigration to Protectionism. Harris became a voice of hope for the Nationalist Leadership. Harris was elected its chair in 2031, the same year Chris Christie was persumed to be the nominee for President.
2027 Depression and Chris Christie
The United States began to splinter and the nominee for the election was a tossup. Chris Christie was nominated by the Nationalists, Marco Rubio for the Republicans, and for the Democrats, Daniel Andersen, a Brooklyn-based politician who pushed for stronger economic reform.
Christie was unable to keep up with Andersen's promises, but thanks to Harris' strong advocation, he kept a foot in the race.
During Andersen's Presidency, The National Party lost ground, as the economy improved, and jobs propelled the middle class.
