CPAC 2021: Donald Trump hints at a possible 2024 presidential run

Trump also launched a scathing attack at his successor, US president Joe Biden, saying that the new administration is anti-jobs, anti-family, anti-borders, anti-energy, anti-women and anti-science, Sputnik reported.

In his first public appearance since departing the Oval Office, former US President Donald Trump hinted that he may launch a third presidential bid.

Speaking at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Florida, he began his speech by asking the crowd: “Do you miss me?”

"I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we began together four years ago is far from over," the former president said in his first speech since leaving the White House last month.

He also announced that he is not starting a new party and asserted his dominance over the grand old party.

“They kept saying ‘he is going to start a brand new party’ we have the Republican party. It is going to unite and come out stronger than ever before – I am not starting a new party, but that was fake news,” Trump said..

"Who knows, I may even decide to beat them for the third time," he added, stopping short of declaring his 2024 plans.

Trump also launched a scathing attack at his successor, US president Joe Biden, saying that the new administration is anti-jobs, anti-family, anti-borders, anti-energy, anti-women and anti-science, Sputnik reported.

"Already the Biden administration has proven that they are anti-jobs, anti-family, anti-borders, anti-energy, anti-women and anti-science," Trump said.

"Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history,” he added.

The former president said that the Democrats can lose the White House four years from now, and repeated his allegations of election fraud.

"Biden has failed in his number one duty as chief executive enforcing America's laws. This alone should be reason enough for Democrats to suffer withering losses in the midterms and to lose the White House decisively four years from now," Trump asserted. "Actually, you know, they just lost the White House."
