Former United States President Donald Trump will deliver his first speech since Biden’s inauguration next week.
The Axios website reported that Trump will announce in a speech that he intends to be the Republican candidate in the 2024 US presidential election as well.
Trump will attend the annual conference of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando-Florida on Sunday.
An adviser who has accompanied Trump in the past told Axios that Trump would say “I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I’m still in charge.” Trump will declare that he is the “designated candidate” of the Republicans in the upcoming election.
Ahead of the speech, Trump will meet with his advisers at the Mar-a-Lego mansion in Florida to discuss his next political steps.
Jason Miller, a senior adviser to the former president, said ahead of the Conservative right-wing event that “Trump is actually the Republican Party. The only gap that exists is between Republicans in official positions and party supporters across the country. When you attack President Trump you are actually attacking the People’s Republicans. “.
A poll by Politico last week found that if the Republican primary had run today, 59 percent said they “would like Trump to play an important role in the party.” This is an increase of 18 percent from the previous survey. 54 percent of those polled said they “would vote for Trump in the primaries.”
The poll was conducted after Trump was acquitted in the impeachment trial that ended a few days ago, following the January 6 break-in of the Capitol building. The decision to win Trump allows him to run in the 2024 presidential election, and Trump himself has already hinted that he intends to do so.
The candidate who won second place in the Politico poll is former Vice President Mike Pence, who received 12 percent support from Republican supporters. Third place went to Nicky Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, with 6 percent, and surprisingly she shares third place with Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr..
Hailey wins third place despite the harsh criticism she passed on the former president in an interview a few days ago, then said that “we have to admit that he has let us down. We should not have followed him.” In fourth place in the poll is Senator Mitt Romney with only 4 percent.
