President Donald Trump will take steps to reconsolidate the Republican Party around himself this week, just over a month after leaving office.
Axios reported Monday morning that Trump plans to focus his upcoming speech at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, around the idea that he remains Republicans’ best shot to take back the White House in 2024.
“Trump effectively is the Republican Party,” Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller said in a statement. “The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grassroots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you’re attacking the Republican grassroots.”
