“We met tonight to talk about the future of the Republican Party and what we need to do to help our candidates win,” Trump told the Reuters news agency, which echoed the former president’s speech. “I stand here tonight with full confidence that in 2022 we will withdraw the House (of Representatives) and restore the Senate. Then in 2024, the Republican candidate will win the White House.”
It is unclear whether Trump is referring to himself by the last sentence. He has previously said he will not rule out running for president again. Last year, Trump (74) lost the election to Democrat Joe Biden (78). Trump further insists that profits were ‘stolen’. He therefore reiterated in his speech the unproven claims of fraud. He also mocked the powerful Senate Republican Mitch McConnell, The Washington Post reported.
Trump, who has been largely in the shadows since leaving the White House and banning Twitter following the Capitol storm, also attacked US top epidemiologist Anthony Fossie in his speech. According to observers, Trump would have said that Fassi was praised only for his critical attitude towards the then president.
The former real estate man reminded viewers of who invented the corona vaccine (“someone should call it Trumpcine”), noting the more than half a million corona deaths in the United States, and praised his own government’s corona policies. In the United States, about 115 million people are now vaccinated at least once.
There are candidates within the Republican Party who want to face Pita in 3.5 years, such as former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Florida Governor Ron Desantis. But names like Nicky Haley and Ted Cruise are also definite.
Prior to that, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives (lower house) and 34 seats in the Senate (upper house) will be voted on in November 2022. This is especially dangerous for Democrats, who have a slight preference in both chambers. If they lose, Biden will find it difficult to implement his policy. He announced last week that he wanted to tighten gun laws, but Democrats still needed broader political support.
