Trump retakes the stage

“Do you miss me yet?” It was vintage Donald Trump yesterday as he spoke to a group of keen supporters at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando in his first address since leaving office 5 weeks ago. He’s been on mute without his Twitter megaphone, but yesterday he got the crowd riled up by blasting President Joe Biden and repeating unfounded claims about the ‘stolen election’. His pièce de résistance: hinting at a run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. ”Who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time,” he said. Cheeky… While Trump has flirted with the idea of creating a new party, he pledged on Sunday to stay in the Republican camp. Even before Trump graced the CPAC stage, the event was trending on social media for the wring reasons when the design of the CPAC stage was likened to a Norse rune used by Nazis. Organisers said the comparisons were “outrageous and slanderous”.
