Ex-President Donald Trump will call himself “a plausible presidential candidate” for the Republican party in a speech in Orlando on Sunday, according to the news site Axios.
Trump, 74, is a speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an annual gathering of leading conservatives. It will be Trump’s first public appearance since he left the White House January 20.
The main thing, according to the site, is not that he is thinking about returning to the White House, but that he is emphasizing that he is still in charge of the party. Trump received 74 million votes in November, more than a Republican presidential candidate ever received and 11 million more than in 2016. But he lost the election and is also controversial in his own circles for blaming the loss on electoral fraud and refusing to believe his Democratic opponent Joe Biden received 7 million more votes.
Trump, according to Axios, is consulting this week at his Mar-a-Lago mansion in Florida with advisers on the course to follow for himself and for the party. For example, a start would be made to establish a network and fund to support pro-Trump Republicans ahead of elections to the House of Representatives and part of the Senate in 2022.
In a recent poll of Republicans, nearly half of those polled said they would rally with a party of Trump if it said goodbye to Republicans and started a party for itself. Only a little over a quarter replied that they would not leave the Republican party if Trump leaves and the rest did not know yet.
Should Trump actually run for office in 2024 and win the election, he will not be the first US president to have two consecutive terms.
The Democrat Grover Cleveland (1837-1908) was the only one to show it to Trump. He took office in 1885 and, after his first term in office, had to die for Benjamin Harrison. In 1892 Cleveland did manage to defeat this Republican. Cleveland’s second term ran from 1893 to 1897. He entered the history books as the 22nd and 24th president.
