WASHINGTON—Donald Trump defied Republican pressure to avoid repeating false claims in the 2020 election, claiming he won a second White House bid on Tuesday (July 26) and claiming that failure to allow recognized enemies would prevent his return.
In his first speech in Washington since resigning 18 months ago, the former US president only announced his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election, but the Republicans won and won the Senate. I predicted that the House of Representatives and the White House would be retaken.
I ran for the first time and won. Then ran again and did much better… and you know what? It was going to be history for a long time, which was a shame. But maybe we have to do it again, Trump said in a 93-minute speech at the conservative America First Policy Institute.
Mike Pence, Trump’s vice president, who may be aiming for the White House in 2024, has distanced himself from Trump’s false election and another event previously held in the US capital. So the Conservative Party says it must look to the future to win. However, the focus may be different. I truly believe elections are about the future.
To win, conservatives must do more than criticize and resent. We must unite our movement behind a bold and optimistic agenda.”
Trump used his speech to paint a picture of an America plagued by crime, violence, drugs and illegal immigrants. He predicted that a future Republican-controlled federal government would impose the death penalty on drug dealers, end state troopers and city violence, and move the city’s homeless into tent camps on the outskirts of US cities.
Last week, a parliamentary commission investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol prevented Trump from proving his damage by having supporters storm seats in Congress on live television. She saw and described him ignoring her family’s pleas and helped him intervene.
Trump dismissed the panel as “hacks and thugs.”
“I can’t work for you anymore because you really want to hurt me, and I don’t think that’s going to happen,” he said.
Trump continues to be an important Republican figure. However, even though he flirts with the presidential nomination in 2024, his standing has fallen somewhat as nearly 40% of Republicans say they are at least partially responsible for the January campaign. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, there were six riots, compared to 33% in a poll six weeks before the hearings began.
On January 6 the commission made a case that Trump’s efforts to reverse his November 2020 loss to Democrat Joe Biden constituted dereliction of duty and illegal activity, disqualifying him from returning to the White House.
I’m trying. Its decline in popularity could embolden potential challengers, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Last week, Mark Short, a former Toppens aide, became the most prominent official to appear before a federal grand jury reviewing two cases.
