The former president gave a closed-door speech to donors in front of the Republican Party on Saturday to defend himself
Florida-Former President Donald Trump demonstrated his participation in the Republican Party in a closed-door speech to donors on Saturday, noting that his radical, populist policies are the key to a “victory future” for the Republican Party.
According to a prepared statement obtained by the Associated Press, Trump reiterated his commitment to the Republican Party in his speech because Republican officials tried to downplay internal disputes over Trump’s role in the party and his commitment to raising funds. The plan is to formulate a plan for 2024. Although Trump’s advisers report that the former president will emphasize party unity, he rarely adheres to this script.
Trump told hundreds of major Republican donors that “the key to a victorious future will be on the achievements of our amazing movement over the past four years.” “Under our leadership, we welcome thousands of new voters in the Republican coalition. We transform the Republican Party into a party that truly fights for all Americans.”
In his final speech at the Republican National Committee Donor Summit in Palm Beach last weekend, the former president gave a closed-door speech at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. At the invitation of CNR, most of the meetings were held in luxury hotels four miles away, and participants were taken to the Trump Club by bus to listen to him.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (Ron DeSantis) also plans to speak to donors on Saturday. At the beginning of the weekend, some people who were interested in the 2024 presidential candidacy showed up.
In addition to Disantis, other potential White House contenders include North Dakota Governor Christie Nome and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Florida Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina ( Lindsey Graham) also made a speech.
On Friday night, Cotton leaned toward the Republican culture war in his speech. Cotton condemned the Democratic Party’s stance on transgender youth and voter identification laws, and Major League Baseball’s decision to change the All-Star stadium to protest the Republican election law, as Trump did in his prepared speech.
Although a major faction of the Republican Party wants to overcome Trump’s divided leadership, the location of the weekend meeting shows that, at least so far, the Republican Party is unwilling to replace the former president as its undisputed main leader.
