In his first public address after leaving White House, former president of United States Donald Trump hinted at next presidential run. He slammed current President Joe Biden and repeated the claim of winning the election.
About starting a new party Trump said he never claimed he was going to start a new party but maybe he should, directing the criticism towards Republicans.
Addressing the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, Trump vowed to help Republicans try to regain majorities in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate in 2022 congressional elections.
“With your help, we will take back the House, we will win the Senate and then a Republican president will make a triumphant return to the White House. I wonder who will that be?” he said, smiling.
Even after winning the impeachment trial Trump’s anger towards the Republicans did seem to have dimmed. He seemed angry at Republicans who voted to impeach or convict in a failed congressional effort to hold him responsible for inciting a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
He singled out several such Republicans by name, like Senators Mitt Romney and Pat Toomey and House lawmakers Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, and suggested he would support candidates who opposed them in Republican primaries.
Donald Trump criticised President Joe Biden again when he said,
“Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history.”
An hour into his 90-minute speech, Trump dove deeply into his unfounded claims of election fraud.
