When a person becomes a former president

As with any human, any former President would miss the pomp and circumstance of being POTUS. The huge motorcade, all of the attention, everyone anxious to hear your every word, being able to basically summons the media to hear you speak, everyone kissing your butt, Marine one, Air Force One, the best security, etc...when all that goes away that is something anyone will have to adjust and get use to....But for a narcissist like Trump all that going away is even worse

2. Ergo the theory

that Trump might make a play for his own media empire. His Twitter account is one outlet for him to keep mucking about, but that won't be near enough for him. He'll want to be in front of the cameras frequently and portrayed only as a hero. His own network would enable that.

3. He'll still get Secret Service security and government health care and more, all paid for

by the taxpayers he tried so hard to screw. Of course if he goes to prison, he'll have security
and health care too. If he tries to run away, he'll lose that.
At this point, I think his safest landing place will be in prison. 90% of the world would like to
read his obituary.

4. If he can hold a rally occasionally and be worshipped, he will be ok.

5. I'd give anything to be a fly on the wall when his Secret Service hands off from the presidential

detail to the former presidential detail, the White House Communications Agency uninstalls all of the communications equipment from Mar-A-Lago, the military aides sign off and head to the airport, etc.

He's going to go from a Secret Service detail of dozens providing the tightest, highest level of protection on earth to few very new rookie agents or almost-ready to retire agents, no metal detectors, no more limousines and motorcades, just one SUV and maybe a chase vehicle. no special White House phone lines with a military communications expert always on the other end ready to patch him through to whomever he wants anywhere in the world, just regular hardlines with dial tones and cell phones with no special features and maybe a signal, maybe not.

It's going to be such a comedown. Sweet.

6. I bet a lot of them are ready to get back to a quieter life, out of the constant spotlight.

However, trump* has never known a quiet life and has spent his entire existence doing his UTMOST to remain in the spotlight. His ego demands constant adoration and he know the adoration from his family is probably financially inspired. Getting that from complete strangers who cling to his every word and never question or doubt him is unlike any drug he can score with a prescription or convenient supplier.

If the media ignores him, after January 20, his antics will become epic.

10. Your post made me wonder

What will happen when he holds rally's and claims he is the "true president"?

I'm hoping that once he's out of office, his rants will either land him in jail for insurrection or in the mental hospital for grandiose delusions.

His narcissistic self will miss the pomp and perks and loyalty that came with the office.
His businessman self will continue to attempt a hostile takeover, as if the country was a corporation. I hope he feels the loss of prestige "bigly".

11. I recall in an interview shortly after he left the oval office Obama said it was a huge relief...

...to not have to be 100% all the time. Of course I'm paraphrasing, but it seems a normal person wouldn't necessarily miss that. Now, as the OP mentioned, this is basically the worst case scenario for a narcissist like Trump.

12. I read somewhere

that air traffic over Mar a Lego is suspended when he's there. That will end Jan 20. It's on a flight path and all those big, noisy jets will again disturb Oranges tranquillity every few minutes. Love it!
