Donald Trump’s speech at CPAC—scheduled for Sunday, February 28—will communicate that he’s still the leader of the Republican Party as well as their “presumptive 2024 nominee” for president.
Axios first broke the news early Monday morning, citing “top Trump allies.”
“A longtime adviser called Trump’s speech a ‘show of force,’ and said the message will be: ‘I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I’m still in charge.’ Payback is his chief obsession,” according to the report.
Some of his advisers told Axios that Trump has a stronger and wider influence within the GOP now more than ever before. Senior adviser Jason Miller said that “Trump effectively is the Republican Party. The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grassroots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you’re attacking the Republican grassroots.”
Although Trump may declare himself the “presumptive nominee,” that does not necessarily mean he’s throwing his hat in the presidential ring again. Axios says that “many Trump confidants think he’ll pretend to run but ultimately pass.”
“He knows the possibility—or threat—gives him leverage and attention,” they added.
On Saturday Big League Politics covered a Politico report that said Trump has been preparing to vet candidates looking to primary Republican governors and members of Congress who have disavowed or clashed with him over the past couple months. Formal meetings are said to begin at Mar-a-Lago sometime in March.
Matt Gaetz Reveals that President Trump “Acts, Talks and Schemes” Like He’s Running in 2024
Gaetz is referring to private conversations with the President.
Florida Republican Matt Gaetz suggested that President Donald Trump is inclined to running to regain the presidency in the 2024 election, referring to private conversations he’s had with Trump since the 45th President left office. Gaetz revealed that President Trump “acts and talks and plans and schemes with me like he is 1000% running again,” speaking in a Clubhouse room to hundreds of Trump supporters.
Gaetz is known to be close to President Trump, and previously suggested that a Trump 2024 campaign is a real possibility. If Trump were to run for the presidency in 2024 and win, he’d become the first US President to serve non-consecutive terms in office since Democrat Grover Cleveland, who served in the late 19th century. Trump would enter office for the second time at the age of 78; seasoned for a President, but equivalent to Joe Biden himself ascending to the presidential throne for the first time at the same age.
With most of the obvious Republican contenders for the presidency lacking Donald Trump’s political charisma and established track record of policy successes as President, it’s hard to imagine any contender defeating Trump in a GOP primary.
Trump has declined to make a decision on a 2024 campaign yet, openly stating that it’s far too early to consider announcing a comeback campaign in phone call appearances on Fox News. Currently, the President is planning to vet and endorse candidates to advance his brand of “Make America Great Again” Republicanism, suggesting he’s finally soured on the Republican establishment after his final months in office.
If the President declines to run, it’s expected that the Republican primary will be largely dominated by traditional conservatives, with rhetorical allusions to Trump’s ‘America First’ vision and policy adherence to traditional Reaganite ideas.
