Trump aims for Republican party leadership ahead of presidential race in 2024

Trump Calls On Brazilians To Reelect 'Great' Bolsonaro

Donald Trump is hopeful to become the Republican party leader ahead of a possible comeback presidential race in 2024. He will start claiming control over the Republican Party this Sunday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida. This would be his first major public appearance after leaving the White House.

“President Trump will be laying out … a future path for the Republican Party,” according to Trump adviser Jason Miller. “We want to go and win back the House and the Senate for Republicans in 2022, but there are … a few places where there may be Republican-held seats where we could get a good ‘America First’ upgrade.”

Trump’s speech at CPAC will show that he has control over the party whether or not he runs in 2024. This year’s CPAC themed “America Uncanceled” is a natural debut for Trump’s post-presidency. Also a launch platform for his next political journey since poll shows Trump remains a 2024 candidate choice for Republicans.

According to a Morning Consult/Politico poll, 54 percent of Republican voters supported Trump in a hypothetical 2024 presidential election. The poll was held three days after Trump’s absolution in his second impeachment trial.

Trump might win the Republican presidential nomination

Senator Mitt Romney said that he believed Trump would win the Republican presidential nomination if he ran for office in 2024.

“He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party,” Romney said at a virtual event. “I don’t know if he’ll run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he will win the nomination.”  He also expected the former president to keep playing a key role in the Republican Party, which suffered an internal identity crisis after Trump’s second impeachment trial.

Trump has been a CPAC regular and appeared there in 2011 for the first time. Trump’s supporter, Matt Schlapp, manages the conference while the speakers’ list includes his son Donald Trump Jr., Dr. Ronny Jackson, pro-Trump members of Congress, and media personalities. Panel discussions will be about election fraud, alleged media censorship and Big Tech, socialism, and “The Awokening of Corporate America”.

Trump’s advisers reportedly said he would talk about the future of the Republican party and the conservative movement, also he would take on President [Joe] Biden’s disastrous amnesty and border policies.

For a while, after Trump supporters devastated the U.S. Capitol, it appeared as the GOP would break from him since some private critics in Congress started showing up. But then, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. visited him at Mar-a-Lago to settle the disagreement.

Trump has also recovered ties with his former vice president, Mike Pence, who is not a CPAC attendee. They did not talk after the riot when Trump supporters chanted “hang Mike Pence” as he moved out from the Capitol.
