Now the once most powerful man in the world wants to give a speech again!
Since Saturday, Trump has been on the list of speakers at the annual CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) – an event organized by conservative activists. The event will take place in Orlando, Florida this year. Trump has lived in the state since the end of his presidency.
▶ ︎ What does Trump want to talk about on February 28? According to the AFP news agency, people around him say about migration and the “catastrophic politics” of his successor Joe Biden. In addition, it should go to the future of the Republican Party, reported the news channel CNN and the “New York Times”.
And that is a particularly interesting topic! Because since Trump was voted out of office, the Republican Party has split a dispute over direction that Trump is actively fueling. Many politicians in the moderate camp want to break with the right-wing populist Trump. In large parts of the party and among the grassroots, the 74-year-old is still very popular. Most recently, the 74-year-old attacked the top Republican in the US Senate, his former ally Mitch McConnell (79).
So hart ging Trump McConnell an
The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political ‘leaders’ like Senator Mitch McConnell at its head,” Trump said. He is “one of the most unpopular politicians in the USA”, a “gloomy, disgruntled” politician “who doesn’t smile”. He lacks “political understanding, wisdom, talent and personality”.
The former Senate majority leader also lets himself be brought before the Democrats and weakens the Republicans.
The question also still arises as to whether Trump could not found his own conservative party.
A MAGA party, named after Trump’s 2016 election slogan “Make America Great Again”, would have little chance of winning the election, but it would divide Republican voters – and thus ruin the chances of a Republican presidential candidate.
Trump announced shortly after he had survived the impeachment: “Our historical, patriotic and beautiful movement to make America great again has only just begun.”
At the CACP conference, Trump meets many former companions: Announced speakers include former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (57), former US Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell (54), and former White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders (38).
