Trump seeks revenge, endorses rival to Republican who voted to impeach

Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump are not exactly BFFs, but the Senate minority leader told Fox News Thursday he'd "absolutely" support the former POTUS were he to become the Republican presidential nominee in 2024.

Trump's tumultuous final weeks in office saw his supporters launch a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6 in an attempt to block Congress from certifying Biden's election victory, a win that Trump falsely claimed was tainted by widespread fraud.

But there's little reason to comment on Trump otherwise, Princeton political history professor Julian Zelizer said.

"There's no question - none - that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events".

"Trump may not have drained the swamp all the way ... yet", he said.

At the conference, though, those fact-based assessments are likely to be few, if any.

President Donald Trump looks on as Sen.

Trump has been keeping a relatively low profile since he moved from the White House to Palm Beach a month ago.

"I've got at least four members that I think are planning on running for president, plus governors and others", Mr McConnell said.

Miller, who played a key role in Trump's 2016 and 2020 election campaigns, has not previously run for elected office. "If we do, we will lose the working base that President Trump so animated".

Trump has begun to wade back into the public, calling into friendly news outlets after the death of conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh and after golfer Tiger Woods' serious auto accident.

Other speakers include Maj Toure, the founder of Black Guns Matter, and Cleta Mitchell, the attorney who was with Trump when he called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and told him to "find" 11,000 votes that would put him over the top in that state's election.

"The more Biden is able to hold back, the more important it will be when he unloads on Trump if he decides to do that", Gergen said.

Trump had repeatedly said Pence had the power to stop the certification of the election results, even though he did not.

Schlapp said CPAC didn't specifically exclude Trump critics and invited those who have a high rating from the American Conservative Union or have shown leadership on conservative issues during the past year.

Prominent congressional conservatives, including senators Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton and Josh Hawley, were among the Trump loyalists speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando.

MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch doesn't think former President Donald Trump will be an option to represent the GOP in the 2024 because he'll be in jail.

"We're probably not a wing, we're the entire physique", Mr Gaetz stated.
