‘I’ll beat them for a third time’ Donald Trump teases 2024 run at CPAC and vows NOT to start a new party

Donald Trump asserted in his grand comeback at CPAC on Sunday that he will not form a new political party because it would further divide the GOP– and the former president previewed another White House run in 2024.

‘Do you miss me yet?’ Trump asked the roaring crowd as he took the stage more than one hour later than scheduled.

He assured those gathered for the final day of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida on Sunday: ‘We’re not starting new parties. We have the Republican Party.’ 

‘Wouldn’t that be brilliant?’ he sarcastically quipped. ‘Let’s start a new party, let’s divide our vote, so you can never win. No we’re not interested in that.’

Trump’s re-commitment to the GOP comes after rumors emerged last month that he was considering creating his own political party and breaking with Republicans – especially those who rebuked him.

The former president used his time on stage to push his repeated claims of voter fraud.

‘Actually as you know, they just lost the White House, but it’s one of those things,’ he said of Democrats, insinuating his claim that Joe Biden did not legitimately win the 2020 presidential election.

‘But who knows, who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time,’ he said, previewing a potential 2024 run to take back the White House. 

Former President Donald Trump assured the crowd at CPAC on Sunday that he will not form his own political party as he appeared for his first public remarks since leaving office on January 20

Trump said to an enthusiastic crowd of mixed mask and mask-less supporters on Sunday: ‘I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we began together. We went through a journey like nobody else, there’s never been a journey like it, there’s never been a journey so successful.’ 

‘We began it together four years ago – and it is far from being over,’ he added.

During his keynote address, Trump sent the message: I am the future of the GOP. He said that he wouldn’t let the radical left cancel him. 

‘For the next four years the brave Republicans in this room will be at the heart of the effort to oppose the radical Democrats, the fake news media and their toxic cancel culture. Something new to our ears, cancel culture,’ he joked.

‘And I want you to know that I’m going to continue to fight right by your side, we will do what we’ve done right from the beginning, which is win,’ he said. 

‘We embrace free thought , we stand up to political correctness and we reject left-wing lunacy and in particular – we reject cancel culture,’ Trump said.

At another point, Trump promised: ‘The Republican Party is united,’ despite recent fractions and feuds.

‘The only division is between a handful of Washington D.C. establishment political hacks, and everybody else all over the country,’ he added.
