In his first public appearance since leaving office, the former US President Donald Trump ruled out the establishment of a new party. “I’m not going to found a new party,” said Trump on Sunday in Orlando at the CPAC conference, an event organized by conservative activists.
He is not allowed to do that either, because otherwise his new campaign donations would be fiscally registered after the “stolen election” he claimed. That’s why he holds back, say tax experts.
“We have the Republican Party.” It will be united and stronger than ever. “I will continue to fight right by your side.” Earlier reports about a possible founding of your own party were “fake news”.
Trump sharply criticized his successor Joe Biden’s policies, which is unusual for a recently retired US president. Trump certified Biden “the most disastrous first month of a president in modern history”.
Trump’s appearance was accompanied by the conference participants with frenetic applause and “USA, USA, USA” shouts.
Trump refuses to this day to admit his defeat against Biden. He claims to have been robbed of victory by massive electoral fraud, but has never presented any evidence. Biden got 81 million votes in the election and a clear majority of the electorate. More than 74 million Americans voted for Trump.
