Former President Donald Trump spoke about his future in the Republican party, in his first speech since leaving the White House almost six weeks ago, according to “Reuters”.
“I stand before you to declare that the incredible journey we started together four years ago is far from over,” said Trump on Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida. “We are meeting this afternoon to talk about the future – the future of our movement, the future of our party and the future of our beloved country,” he added.
Donald Trump considered that the “Republican Party is united” and pointed out that “the only division is between a handful of political hacks”. Trump discussed the possibility of running for president again in 2024, but did not guarantee that he would do so.
“This will be a decision that Trump will make in the future,” Republican National Committee chairman Ronna McDaniel told the “CBS” “Face the Nation” program. In turn, a committee advisor explained that in the short term, Trump is committed to creating a superPAC political organization, with the goal of raising money to support candidates who reflect his policies.
During his speech, Donald Trump also took the opportunity to criticize current US President Joe Biden. “We all knew that the Biden government would be bad – but none of us imagined how bad it would be,” said Trump. “Joe Biden had the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history,” said the former American president.
The Biden White House plans to ignore Trump’s speech. “Our focus is certainly not on what President Trump is saying,” said White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
Donald Trump’s final days were marked by his supporters’ invasion of the Capitol on January 6 in an attempt to prevent Congress from certifying Biden’s electoral victory, a victory that Trump falsely claimed was tainted by widespread fraud.
