Trump to announce himself as Republican ‘presumptive 2024 nominee’ — report

12 26 52

Donald Trump will be making his first post-presidential appearance at a conservative gathering in Florida next weekend where he plans to tell Republicans that he is their “presumptive 2024 nominee” for president, according to a Monday report by Axios.

Ian Walters, the spokesman for the American Conservative Union, confirmed that Trump will be speaking at the group’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference on February 28.

An unnamed longtime adviser told Axios that Trump’s upcoming speech will be a “show of force,” and the message will be: “I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I’m still in charge.”

CPAC is being held this year in Orlando, Florida, and will feature a slew of former Trump administration officials and others who represent his wing of the GOP, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.

Trump has been keeping a relatively low profile since he retired from the White House to Palm Beach, Florida, in January, but reemerged last week to conduct a series of phone-in interviews to commemorate the death of conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh.

Trump has a long history........
