Trump to claim total control of GOP with first post-presidency speech to CPAC: "A Show of Force"

In his first post-presidential appearance, Donald Trump plans to send the message next weekend that he is Republicans' "presumptive 2024 nominee" with a vise grip on the party's base, top Trump allies tell Axios.

A longtime adviser called Trump's speech a "show of force," and said the message will be: "I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office, but I'm still in charge." Payback is his chief obsession.

Axios has learned that Trump advisers will meet with him at Mar-a-Lago this week to plan his next political moves, and to set up the machinery for king making in the 2022 midterms.

Trump is expected to stoke primary challenges for some of those who have crossed him, and shower money and endorsements on the Trumpiest candidates.

State-level officials, fresh off censuring Trump critics, stand ready to back him up.

Trump's speech Sunday at CPAC in Orlando is designed to show that he controls the party, whether or not he runs in 2024.

His advisers argue that his power within the GOP runs deeper and broader than ever, and that no force can temper him.

"Trump effectively is the Republican Party," Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told me. "The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grassroots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you're attacking the Republican grassroots."

The few Republicans who have spoken ill of Trump since the election — including House members who voted to impeach him, and senators who voted to convict — have found themselves censured, challenged and vilified by the parties in their home states.

Trump's leadership PAC, Save America, has $75 million on hand, and he has a database of tens of millions of names.

Many Trump confidants think he'll pretend to run but ultimately pass. He knows the possibility — or threat — gives him leverage and attention.

A Trump source said some Republicans have told him: "If you endorse me, I'll run."

But advisers say that's not how it'll work. This week's meeting will aim to tap the brakes.

Instead, Trump is going to set up a formal process for vetting potential endorsees, including a requirement that they raise money and put together an organization.

What we're watching: Trump plans to argue in the CPAC speech that many of his predictions about President Biden have already come true.

Look for Trump to lay into "the swamp" and Beltway insiders in a big way.

The Trump source said: "Much like 2016, we’re taking on Washington again."

Trump won't run, R7.

He narrowly dodged an impeachment bullet this time, and he is facing tons of lawsuits. I don't think he wants to be President again.

What he DOES want is to be "King Maker." Like the Godfather.

People will have to come to him and "kiss the ring" if they want to run for President. They'll probably have to pay him, too.

Anyone wondering why people are still kissing Trump's ass? This is why.

Dirty politics has just gotten a WHOLE lot dirtier.

He HAS to run again, or pretend to be running right up to the end: grifting donations from his sheep is his only real source of income now. And what No. 7 said above is the most ominous thing about this. I don't see how Biden could run again- the likelihood of him living for 8 more years is not very high. And Kamala Harris COULD NOT beat Trump in an election. And yes, the Democratic Party is indeed stupid enough to let her try to run against him.

I agree. And we have yet to see what I'm sure will be wave after wave of anti-Trump tell-all books written by people in the former administration.

Other than within his rabid base, his ratings will continue to go down and down. Assuming ol' lard ass hasn't stroked out by then, as we approach 2024 the polls will show he will have no chance and his ego won't allow him to enter a race he has no reasonable chance of winning.

Plus, I wouldn't think Melanoma is about to stick around for Round Two, no matter how much money they throw at her. From all accounts she cares deeply for her son, and by 2024 he'll be 18 and considered fair game for the press. She'll want no part of that.

The Republican Party’s problem is that Trump is loved with a cult-like devotion by Republicans, but I doubt that many of those in the middle who decide elections would ever risk voting for him again after the Capitol attack.

However, enough of them may be able to be persuaded to vote for an allegedly kinder, softer Trump. I bet the Orange Ogre would love Ivanka to be the first female president, just as a final insult to Hillary.

Not only that, but who would actually work for him, during a second term?


Any goodwill he had from prominent Republicans who were willing to give him a chance, are now gone.

He burned every single bridge he could possibly burn.

Don't forget, the rats were jumping ship after the January 6 insurrection. Even his most loyal supporters were quitting AND condemning him.

Trump could not put together a second Cabinet, even if his life depended on it. He'd end up putting all of his kids and grandkids into those seats.

No one will work for him any more.

He doesn’t have command of the airspace or highways anymore. He could be delayed, know what I mean? A few staged accidents in vital areas to keep him from arriving ....

He’s not president anymore. Yes his USSS are loyal to him & his family. But his USSS agents can be suddenly changed by Biden. Trump is going to demand a presidential motorcade. He’ll make sure police motorcycles and black SUVs escort him, flags flying. He’ll demand a helicopter from CPAC as well. Militia members might even give him a 21 gun salute.

I’d be careful if I were Trump. He’s not running things anymore.

While he has not completely disappeared, he seems too lazy to do a lot of appearances without having it set-up as part of his campaign and an occasional press release aside, he seems to not make a lot of effort to communicate now that he cannot just tweet it.

I really cannot fathom the devotion to a political leader like that. Or any for that matter. I feel like they're elected to work for us (Errrr, the corporations) so they're not "leaders" or idols, but employees and should be treated as such. But Trump has literally f*cked everything he touches up, either actively or passively. He's done nothing for the working man but the treat him like the second coming. I really don't understand it.

As to Cuomo. I'm all for forgiving him for screwing things up last year. Nobody knew what was going on and everyone was making knee-jerk decisions without any precedent. I can't fault the man for being a dumbass because everyone else was too. But as soon as it came out that it appeared he was covering for the nursing home companies, I'm all for holding him accountable. A "Whoops, my bad, I tried my best" would have gone a long way to keeping my support, but now, screw him.

by Anonymousreply 4202/22/2021

It's only been what, less than 4 months after the election? And just a month after he finally got shooed away from the White House? People are seriously overestimating both (1) his and (2) GOP's viability in the long run. He'll have to spend next few years dodging various criminal investigations, not the least the Congressional inquest into Jan 6 events. More and more higher level insurrectionists are already indicating that they are willing to cooperate with the authorities. He's a bobblehead propped up by people by Bannon, Stone and a few others. Once you remove the puppetmasters, the puppet is just what it is: a sad, wooden dummy, without the ability to do anything of substance. We are talking about someone with Grade 4 level reading skills and whose IQ is *maybe* around 80 points.

The comments below this Daily Mail story about CPAC from today, this evening, are 100% NEGATIVE about what is going on so far. It's really pretty surprising that NONE of the commenters seem not to see the Trump Show as anything but hopeless grifting from a pack of con artists. That's some kind of relief to me.

He's not even a politician, he's uneducated, doesn't know the Constitution, laws... What can he talk about for an hour except all the people who cheated him? Why is that someone you want in a leadership position?

To even barely eke-by again, he'd have to assemble the exact same posse he delegated everything to before. He doesn't trust anyone else . And who knows if they'd even be available in 4 years?

He better quit while he's ahead.

R104 It reminds me of the scene in the 10 Commandments when the Jews were smitten for worshipping a golden idol.

“We need a white male to run and no more identity politics”

One of the more unintentionally funny things I’ve read here.

The movie, "A Face In The Crowd" was about a trump like figure...a jail bird who was discovered and had that charisma to take people in, making him famous. He became a cult leader. Great movie that says so much about today. However, in the end...the followers, who loved him, turned their backs on him, when he revealed his true self and how he felt about his followers with a lot of contempt. They were disgusted by him and walked away...leaving the cult leader all alone on a balconey, yelling. How I wish this would happen in real life with trump. He doesn't give a shit about his followers, and doesn't hide it. Yet, the cult members stand by him. I wish life imitated art here.

Trump isn't going to run again but as long as he stays in the limelight he can collect money from his sheeple. I'm sure he has lost any income from Russia so he has to make it up somehow and what better way than to legally steal it from people who believe you care about them.

R116. We know Trump has called his followers poorly educated and complained about the insurrectionists looking. “Low class”. They seem to take his insults as compliments.

If he were to get caught by a hot mic calling them trashy morherfuckers, , they either laugh uproariously and buy another Trump flag

(I love that movie,, BTW)

Hitler was a nobody who was sent by the German army after WWI to spy on the various political groups that were agitating in the chaos after the war ended. It turned out he DID have a talent: making speeches. Look what he did with it.

I love that movie, too R118. I don't understand it either. It's so bizarre.

He’s got to come up with more than 1/2 a billion dollars, [italic] After Taxes [:italic] (and they’re going to be watching him like a hawk), to cover personal loans and likely penalties and legal bills (paid up front?) due within the next 32 months.
