Donald Trump calls for Republican Party unity

President Joe Biden's White House has made it clear it plans to ignore Donald Trump's speech on Sunday to a conservative conference in Florida, where the former president is expected to go on the attack against his successor.

Aside from the Former president, the CPAC event also featured speakers American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Matt Schlapp, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, former Trump Deputy National Security Adviser KT McFarland, and The Trump Organization's Executive Vice President, Donald Trump Jr., among others. "Actually they just lost the White House". We will win the Senate and then a Republican president would triumph the White House. Trump said after taking the stage, where his old rally soundtrack had been playing. "Who knows? I may even decide to beat them for a third time, ok?"

"For years the weightlifting, every ounce is like a big deal for many years", Trump said, imitating a person struggling to lift weights. "This is a terrible, terrible, painful struggle", he said.

"I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we begun far from being over".

Donald Trump returns to the political spotlight on Sunday, determined to regain control of a Republican Party that is out of power and pondering whether the flawed former president can win again in 2024.

Aside from criticizing Biden, Trump used the speech to crown himself the future of the Republican Party, even as many leaders argue they must move in a new, less divisive direction after Republicans lost not just the White House, but both chambers of Congress. "Instead, we will be united and strong like never before".

Despite losing November's presidential election and being deeply criticised over the January riot, reports suggest Mr Trump remains extremely popular among his voting base.

Exeter City Council said no evacuation centres had been set up and people affected had been encouraged to stay with relatives. More than 2,600 households are being evacuated after an unexploded World War Two bomb was found in Exeter, UK.

For some Republicans like Senator Bill Cassidy, who voted to convict Trump in the impeachment trial, moving on from the brash billionaire is critical.

"It's not good for women, it's not good for women's sports, which worked so long and so hard to get to where they are".

Though Trump has flirted with the idea of creating a third party, he pledged to remain part of what he called "our beloved party".

Opinion polls have shown that Trump, who is the first United States president to have been impeached twice, is highly popular among Republican party members and supporters, and way ahead of others.

"His historic anti-LGBTQ agenda is part of the reason he's no longer president and we'll never get exhausted of reminding him of that", he said.

"We are gathered this afternoon to talk about the future - the future of our movement, the future of our party, and the future of our beloved country".

Some Trump supporters have pushed conspiracy theories that the government would use the vaccine to conduct surveillance of the population. A separate question on the poll asked whether Trump should run again in 2024, and it led to a mixed result - with 68 per cent saying he should run and 32 per cent saying they were opposed or had no opinion. "For that reason, I can not sit by without taking action".
