(ConservativeHub.com) – Donald Trump has, for the most part, remained out of the limelight since his departure from the White House on January 20. However, he has engaged in flurries of activity here and there.
He met with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in late January and pledged to help Republicans take back the House. He gave a riveting speech at the annual CPAC conference at the end of February, where he ruled out starting a new political party. In March, he and former First Lady Melania Trump launched a new website (45office.com) to serve their personal offices’ needs.
What he hasn’t done, however, is answer the question on everyone’s mind. Is he going to run for president in 2024? So far, all he’s really offered are hints. He did recently tell Fox News he wouldn’t decide whether to run until after the 2022 midterm elections.
What’s Next for Donald Trump?
The Hill reported on April 1 that Trump appears to be “back in the political fray.” He’s taken swipes at his successor, Joe Biden, recently about his failed border security measures. He also lashed out at his former Corona Task Force members, Doctors Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci, in the wake of the airing of a CNN documentary special about the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He’s also rumored to be interested in setting up his own social media platform following his permanent suspension from Twitter and a lengthy ban on Facebook (to which no end-date has been indicated).
Former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says he’s biding his time for the moment. He’s focusing his attention on correcting the record of his presidency. According to her, he also has an interest in weighing in on current political measures when he thinks the country is heading in the wrong direction.
Whatever Trump plans to do, one thing is certain: He remains the de facto leader of the Republican Party. As Conway concluded, Trump isn’t going anywhere. “He remains a leader to tens of millions of Americans.”
