Trump Mulls White House Bid in CPAC Speech: "I May Even Decide to Beat Them for the Third Time"
Epoch Times ^ | 02/28/2021 | Jack Phillips

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.

He’s done

I’m sick and tired of everyone ignoring the gigantic dead elephant in the room... which is now rotting to high heaven.

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.

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!

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.

If he’s not starting a new party then he will be fighting the same RINO’s again
