Former President Donald Trump delivered his first major speech after leaving office, charting a path forward for the Republican Party and conservatives but suggesting that he might run in 2024.
“I may even decide to beat them for the third time,” he said.
Trump said the conservative movement he created “is far from being over” but did not declare that he would try to run against for president in 2024. “There’s never been a journey more successful,” he remarked, adding that conservatives “will be victorious and stronger and greater than ever before.”
“The future of the Republican Party is as a party that defends the social, economic, and cultural interests and values of working American families—of every race, every color, and every creed. Republicans believe that the needs of everyday citizens must come first,” he said on Sunday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida.
Republicans over the next four years will be the bulwark against socialism, communism, and Biden administration policies.
“I’m going to continue to fight right by your side,” he said, adding that he won’t create a “brand new party,” adding: “I am not starting a new party.”
Trump has discussed privately running again for president in 2024, according to advisers. The former president has only delivered a few interviews to news outlets since he departed office in January.
“That’s going to be a decision he makes down the road,” Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“I think without question” the Republican Party remains the Trump party, his son Donald Trump Jr., told Fox News on Saturday. “I think you hear it from the voices. I think you see it in the speeches of others that are in government.

Yeh, in a few weeks. 😏
I’m sick and tired of everyone ignoring the gigantic dead elephant in the room... which is now rotting to high heaven.
He is basically giving the state of the union address right now. 😄
As much as I like and supported President Trump, the GOP needs new blood to run in 2024 and Governor Ron DeSantis fills the bill.
What are you talking about? Election fraud?
BS!!!! There has NEVER been a President who has accomplished as much
Trump won on Nov 3rd
He is STILL President!!
Grover Cleveland eat your heart out
Your face is done.
He’s not done. Trump owns conservative politics now, and he is renovating the carcass that was formerly the establishment Rino owned republican party.
Bigger, stronger, and better than ever.
Rino free since 2021!
(That’d be a killer T-shirt)
I agree 1000%
Trump has unique skills that no one else has.
De Santis us a gret guy but could never deal with the world like Trump
You two are Establishment Trolls!
I think he was referring to 2016 when he and Melania came down the escalator. She would go on to be the future First Lady..
That’s the way I took it.
He could never win at the ballot box because the ballot box is completely rigged. Trump failed to protect the ballot box. Now the progressive left will steal every election from now on.
Are you holding out for Teddy “Cancun Cruz” to run again?
If so, good luck with that.
The ones up in 2022 that must be replaced are Murkowsky, Thune, Hoeven, Blunt, Grassley, Lankford, Lee, Scott and Rubio.
We will never Make America Great Again by re-electing Assistant Democrats.
I’ve said multiple times on FR there are closet Never Trumpers who pop out here and there...here’s one now on the thread.
If he’s not starting a new party then he will be fighting the same RINO’s again
There better be a huge bunch of RINOs that get voted out or there will be not be a point.
