  • Donald Trump calls for Republican Party unity

Taking the stage for the first time since leaving office, former President Donald Trump has called for Republican Party unity in a speech at a conservative political conference, even as he has exacerbated its divisions and made clear he meant to remain a dominant force in the party.

Calling vaccine rollout a "calculated risk", Trump also claimed that his administration put up "billions of dollars to produce vaccines before they knew they were going to work" and that the "Trump Administration deserves full credit".

"Do you miss me yet?"

Donald Trump says Rep.

"I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we began together, we went through a journey like nobody else, there's never been a journey like it, there's never been a journey so successful, we began it together four years ago, and it is far from over", he said.

The schism in the party has remained since, with those who have broken rank against him notably absent from the CPAC stage. "I do think that the policies are what's even more popular", Portman said.

The Americans Keeping Country First super PAC will serve as a sister organisation to Adam Kinzinger's PAC Country First, which the legislator created in order to purge the Republican party of Trump's influence. "It is going to unite and be stronger than ever before".

Trump's remarks marked his first public appearance since he left the White House on January 20.

Trump, who spent months publicly downplaying the virus' impact and eschewing mask-wearing, announced in October that he had tested positive for Covid-19.

Trump addressed the rift in the Republican Party fueled by a small number of Republicans who voted in favor of impeachment and conviction before the Senate acquitted the former president.

In a speech that dragged on for an hour and a half, Trump repeatedly hit out at Joe Biden, pushed the false idea that the election was stolen, and characterised immigrants as "predators", "rapists" and "drug smugglers".

Recent polls have given Biden a job approval rating well past 50 per cent, a strong showing from Americans. Many of them are skeptical of the vaccine.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis garnered support from 21% of the attendees, making him the second top pick.

For the ex-president's potential successors in the party, however, there was a glimmer of opportunity on Sunday.

"The steps they've taken are welcome, but insufficient to the moment and the need", Alex Howard, an open government advocate who directs the left-leaning Digital Democracy Project at the Demand Progress Educational Fund, told Politico.

Michelle Brane, who most recently worked as a senior director with the New York City-based Women's Refugee Commission, will be the executive director of task force.

Speaking before an energized crowd at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump said that President Joe Biden had the "most disastrous first month of any president in modern history".

White House press secretary Jen Psaki brushed off the expected criticism.

Trump and his spouse, Melania, quietly obtained coronavirus vaccinations in January earlier than leaving the White Home, an adviser stated on Monday.

Trump's potential return to the White House is exactly why some politicians were anxious after the twice-impeached president was acquitted on charges of inciting the insurrection that happened at the Capitol on January 6, 2021 (via Newsweek).
