Trump prepares his return: “I will be the Republican candidate in the 2024 elections”
Donald Trump prepares his return to the political scene more than a month after the assault on Capitol Hill, which had temporarily put him on the bench with the departure for Mar-a-Lago and the impeachment trial. But after being acquitted in the Senate, his faithful strategists from Florida will work on the speech he will deliver on Sunday, on the occasion of the ‘Conservative Political Action Committee‘(CPAC), the largest and most influential conservative gathering in America this year, not surprisingly, will be held in Orange County and not Washington.
Sunday afternoon, fromHyatt Regency in Orlando, The Donald will send a clear message: he is still the undisputed leader of the Republican party, and “he will be the Republican candidate in the presidential elections of 2024 ″. To reveal it is the political magazine Axios, which cites sources very close to the Tycoon. That of February 28 will be a “showdown”, in which Trump will clarify that “he may no longer have Twitter or be in the oval office” but he is “still in office. “Revenge is his obsession,” say the advisers close to him.
Axios reports that this week they will gather at its Mar-a-Lago estate to plan the next steps and set up the strategy for the 2022 mid-term elections: corner the party members who have hindered (or have not favored) his propaganda campaign on fraud following the November 2020 elections and favor those who instead supported him, thanks to the support of state officials who have remained loyal to him.
According to Axios, in Orlando Trump will flaunt the solidity of his leadership within the GOP, regardless of the actual presidential race of 2024. An estate that has not been tarnished by the episodes of Capitol Hill. If it is true that the assault on Congress on January 6 triggered a flight from the GOP, in fact, the failure (second) impeachment has raised the ex-president’s prices: according to a Morning Consult poll, he is with Trump on 59 percent of the Republican electorate.
That famous “Red Nation” that has not abandoned him. But there is no shortage of discontent in Washington, as the positions of the minority leader in the Senate demonstrated in the last month Mitch McConnell, his former loyalist who – despite not having voted for impeachment – explicitly accused the Tycoon of being the moral responsible for the violence on the Capitol. Trump’s speech will in part be aimed at McConnell and those senators, including the deputy Mike Pence, who would like to regain control of the party in the name of a return to more moderate positions, despite the fact that in the last four years they have always supported those of their leader.
But Trump’s advisers are confident. “Trump is in fact the Republican party”, the communications strategist responsible for the last election campaign told Axios. Jason miller. “When you are attacking Trump, you are attacking the Republican party.” And while many on staff argue that he won’t eventually run for a new term, the announcement (or threat) of the candidacy is important to get him attention and, more importantly, influence right now. All possible candidates in the next elections will ask him for an endorsement. “If you support me, I apply”, would be the motto of the aspiring candidates.
But Trump’s support will not be free: he will demand that they raise funds and organize themselves. In Sunday’s speech, the first since leaving Pennsylvania Avenue, there will obviously be attacks on Biden: the former president will accuse his successor of having already shown some of the weaknesses that Trump had foreseen. “Just like in 2016, we’re taking back Washington“Assured his consultant. Meanwhile, the event has been sold out for weeks.
