Donald Trump might have just lost his reelection bid, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to fade into the background. In fact, a recent report by NewsMax claims he’ll use an upcoming appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to officially announce his reentry into the political world.
The former president wants his speech to be a “show of force.” He also wants it to be his unofficial kickoff for the 2024 Presidential Campaign. Trump allies say he believes he’ll be the presumptive nominee. Others in the Republican party agree.
“Trump effectively is the Republican Party,” Trump senior adviser Jason Miller recently told the media. “The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grassroots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you’re attacking the Republican grassroots.”
Miller went on to say that Trump will claim “total control” of the GOP during his CPAC speech.
The annual Conservative conference opens on Thursday and runs through next Sunday. Trump’s speech will mark his first public appearance since leaving the White House.
A longtime advisor said the former President wants to make it clear that he is “still in charge” of his party. This fact remains despite his not having Twitter to deliver his messages.
Donald Trump Attacks The Swamp
The former president is also said to be planning on returning to a familiar message. In that regard, his 2021 speech will closely mirror his 2016 speech. In that appearance, he talked about the need to clean up “The Swamp” that was Washington, DC.
Trump is set to meet with his advisers this week ahead of his CPAC appearance to talk about steps to launch a potential campaign after the speech. There are also plans to make sure that he has plenty of key allies in Congress in the near future.
While the former president does have quite a few allies in the House of Representatives, he has fewer in the US Senate. That was best demonstrated by the seven Republicans who voted for his conviction in his Impeachment Trial.
One of the topics of conversation with his advisers this week is said to be about how he can help in the 2022 mid-terms.
Because the GOP won seats in the House and saw some surprise upsets in the Senate, they believe they can take back congress in a year. Trump reportedly wants to spearhead that effort.
He’s expected to pour money into several campaigns. He’ll also likely tour the country to offer endorsements of his hand-picked candidates.
Save America, Trump’s leadership PAC has $75 million on hand. It also has a database containing tens of millions of names.
This week’s meeting is also expected to set up an official vetting process. This will allow him to help decide who to endorse and fund in 2022.
