Brad Pascale, who led Trump’s data and digital operations during the presidential campaign, is leading the group’s formation, Pascale told the Associated Press.

He said the group's focus is "about supporting the conservative agenda and what the Trump movement stands for."

The group is backed by Trump and his family, according to the AP.

Former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway could also potentially be involved in the political support network.

The Hill reported last month that Conway had considered leading such an organization, which will follow the model of Organizing for Action, the group that was run by President Obama’s advisers after his election.

Conway suggested at the time she might be involved in the group if she didn’t take an immediate job in the White House. 

“Most accurately that is under active consideration, along with a tour of duty in the Oval,” Conway told The Hill in November.

Earlier this week Conway told reporters she had turned down the role of press secretary.

Conway previously called the formation of such a group, which can accept an unlimited amount of money from donors without having to disclose names, "potent and necessary.”
