Earlier in February, some anti-Trump Republicans convened to discuss the possibility of starting a new party, given Trump's enduring ownership of the GOP.

Pressed on the prediction, Romney said, "I think he'd win the nomination if he runs".

Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told Axios, "Trump effectively is the Republican Party".

"He's been a very low-key but very effective senator, particularly on tax policy, and I remind people that were it not for Pat Toomey, President Trump would not have gotten the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act through". "(Trump's) betrayal of the Constitution and his oath of office required conviction".

Former Vice President Mike Pence, who remained doggedly loyal to Trump for almost all of the latter's term, has reportedly declined to appear at CPAC, two sources told CNN. Louisiana's other USA senator, Republican John Kennedy, voted against conviction.

"Staying close to the Trumps and far away from Washington is the best place for any Republican politician right now", Cluverius said.

On Sunday, Hutchinson praised Trump's family, including Trump's daughter Ivanka, and said he also respected his nephew's decision to continue his political career as an independent. He said the GOP will need to work in particular on galvanizing certain segments of voters as Trump did, such as blue-collar workers.

Trump on Monday issued a "Statement on the Continuing Political Persecution of President Donald J. Trump" following a Supreme Court ruling on his tax returns being sought by the district attorney in Manhattan. State party organizations are still dominated by Trump loyalists, even in states where Trump is less popular.

If Trump chooses to run for the White House in 2024, opponents are likely to call on a constitutional provision adopted after the Civil War to try to stop him. Ratified in 1868, the language in Section 3 of the amendment was aimed at former Confederate civilian and military leaders.

The 45th president is expected to go between "warming up to the idea of a 2024 run, and walking right up to the line of announcing another campaign" - though he is not expected to make an actual announcement.

When the question was posed to Representative Liz Cheney, the highest-ranking House Republican to vote to impeach Trump for inciting the January 6 Capitol attack, she had a very different answer.

"If Trump runs again in 2024, I think it's very likely that we'll see efforts to keep him off the ballot on Fourteenth Amendment grounds", Daniel Hemel, a University of Chicago law professor, wrote in an email.

Sources said Trump will present himself as the "presumptive 2024 nominee" in a "show of force".

Representative Liz Cheney (R- WY), one of ten House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, said on Tuesday during a Reagan Institute event that the Republican party needs to "make clear that we aren't the party of white supremacy" in the wake of the deadly Capitol riots.
