The GOP establishment tried to purge Donald Trump from the Republican Party.
Trump had a surprising reaction.
That fight came to a head when Donald Trump dropped one big bombshell about leaving the Republican Party.
As Great American Daily reports:
Former President Trump re-emerged and made his first public appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida.
At the top of his speech, the President addressed reports that surfaced in the Wall Street Journal back in January that Trump was considering forming a new Patriot Party to challenge establishment Republicans that abandoned him during the impeachment push following the riot at the Capitol.
But Trump made it clear he was sticking with the GOP.
“I am not starting a new party. That was fake news,” Trump told the cheering crowd.
Trump explained that if he formed a Patriot Party, all it would accomplish is dividing the opposition to the left allowing the Democrats to win every election.
“Wouldn’t that be brilliant?” Trump stated. “Let’s start a new party and divide our vote.”
Trump added that the civil war in the Republican Party was over and that Trump and his “America First” agenda could unite the party around a common goal of winning in the 2022 elections.
“We have the Republican Party,” Trump continued. “It’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before.”
Two polls at CPAC showed that there is uniform belief within the conservative movement that Trump and his agenda should play a major role in leading the GOP back to victory.
97 percent of CPAC attendees approve of Trump’s job as President and 95 percent want Trump’s “America First” policies on immigration, trade, cultural issues and foreign policy to form the foundation of the GOP’s agenda.
In his speech, Trump claimed the only ones opposed to him were a small cabal of establishment insiders and hacks.
And in point of fact few Republicans actually oppose Trump.
Poll after poll of the broader Republican Party shows at least 80 percent of Republicans approve of Trump.
Anti-Trump voices like Mitt Romney, Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney and Larry Hogan only seem like they represent a significant portion of the GOP because they are over-represented in appearances in the activist Democrat media.
In reality they represent little to no voters within the Republican coalition.
Trump revealed that his next political move would be “actively working to elect strong, tough and smart Republican leaders” in the 2022 midterms to build momentum for the GOP heading into 2024.
For now there is no question that Donald Trump is the leader of the GOP.
If he runs for president in 2024, the nomination is very likely his for the taking.
