Former President Trump is set to give his first public speech since leaving office with his support among GOP voters rock solid. Trump survived his second impeachment not only with an acquittal but with firm control over the Republican Party, something no one thought he could pull off.
According to people close to Trump, he will continue to push for his vision of the future for the Republican Party backing up his earlier claim to mount primary challengers where needed.
“Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership,” Trump said earlier in the week.
Trump has gone after Mitch McConnell and many in the GOP but in this speech, he will also turn the tables and go after Joe Biden and the Dems ‘disastrous policies’ especially concerning immigration.
“Look for the 45th president to take on President Biden’s disastrous amnesty and border policies,” a source told Fox News.
Trump, according to sources, will vow to continue to lead conservatives in the fight against Biden and the Dems.
Former President Trump will speak at next week’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) conference in Florida, his first public appearance since leaving office, a source with direct knowledge tells Axios.
What we’re hearing: Trump plans to directly attack President Biden’s new immigration plan and will talk about the future of the Republican Party, a source familiar with his speech said.
The former president will criticize what he’ll argue is the Biden administration’s “disastrous” amnesty and border policies, and vow to remain a key leader in the conservative movement to fight against Biden.
Trump’s aides have been weighing where and how to have him emerge. But his 21st century political career essentially began at CPAC in 2011.
