Trump tells CPAC he has no plans to launch new party

In the aftermath of Joe Biden’s inauguration there has been intense speculation about former President Donald Trump’s plans for the future and whether he intends to remain actively involved in national politics as a Republican or otherwise.

Trump himself provided some clarification on those questions Sunday during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in which he stated that, despite some earlier rumors to the contrary, he will not be launching a new political party, as Fox News reported.

The rift between the Trump loyalists and establishment members of the Republican party has come into stark relief in recent weeks, particularly after GOP 10 House members voted to impeach the the former president for a second time, and seven senators within the party voted for his conviction. That, combined with intraparty condemnation of Trump’s actions in the wake of the Jan. 6 unrest at the Capitol sparked additional talk of a possible split.

Trump himself, however, put the issue to rest at CPAC, flatly declaring, “I am not starting a new party. That was fake news,” according to Fox News, also promising that the Democrats face the prospect of “withering losses” in the 2022 midterm elections and that “a Republican president” will return to the White House thereafter, as Politico reported.

The former president remains highly popular among wide swaths of the GOP, winning the CPAC straw poll handily with 55% of the vote, compared to the 21% support garnered by the second-place finisher, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, as Fox News reported.

However, there remain several prominent Republican voices who have publicly urged the GOP to permanently sever ties with Trump, including Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who recently declared that the former president does “not have a role as a leader of our party going forward,” as The Hill noted.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has added his voice to those in the GOP harshly critical of Trump, asserting earlier this month that he was “practically and morally responsible” for instigating unrest at the Capitol in January and accusing Trump of being “determined to…torch our institutions on the way out.”

Despite his declared intention to remain firmly within the Republican fold, Trump did take the occasion of the CPAC speech to call out those in the party he feels have been especially disloyal, including “Little Ben Sasse,” of Nebraska, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), and Cheney, to whom the former president referred to as a “warmonger.” However, he also characterized the internal strife as limited in nature and “between a handful of Washington, D.C. establishment political hacks and everybody else all over the country.”

Time will tell whether voters agree with Trump’s take on the state of party unity and will continue to look to him for leadership heading into the midterms and beyond.

Old wisdom says “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.” Trump knows that and he is wise to say “We can fix the Republican party and win, not allow our egos to destroy it and lose.” He truly believes that and knows that even though he is the reason the Republicans are winning, splitting away from them will only weaken him and the party. I believe the man will do this because his record tells me he can. That’s the reason I will continue to support him because he believes in the United States and has the balls to do what he can to ensure my continued freedom.

I am fed up with the RHINO’s in the Republican Party! Talk about jealous, power hungry, career politicians!!! We had a GREAT THING GOING in this country! Couldn’t they have just united together around the best president this country has ever seen? Of course not … !
Wonderful things were happening in all areas of government, for our citizenry and foreign affairs!! Amazing changes and progress such as we have never seen before. WOW! People were rallying around our country and patriotism was fanned back into flame! The liberals fought President Trump at every point … even deceiving the public on issues where they were the culprit! The treasonous things with and around the election are not representative of my USA! The RHINO’S are hugely responsible for where we are now! And our courts are alarmingly horrible!
I just want to say … “Way to go!” Instead of actually doing what our representatives were elected for …. serving the American people who loved President Trump and all he stood for …. they just had to look out for themselves and betray The President! After all maybe they had their sights on moving on up…… There is no integrity, no serving the people, no vision for the greater good of the country with these people. In great part because of that … we are now slaves to communist ideologies!
“Way to go RHINOS!” I don’t care about your political futures, or all the ridiculous words you have to say now … how you’re going to make things better? They were BEST! The path was clear … 20/20!

The immagrants should not be involved in USA politics or living until all current citizens are properly taken care of. Biden and his cabinet are stupid and should be removed from office.

In my opinion, the most important comment that he left out during his speech was that President Biden wants the illegal immigrants to flow into the US is for future democratic votes. He should have emphasized several times during his speech.

It isnt wise to take a third party off the table, but Independent is still viable. Our President would bring the vast majority of his 2020 voters wherever he went and after four destructive years of slow joe , he would gain fed up demonrats. This would leave the other two swamp parties battling for the remaining half of American voters removing any chance of either winning.
