Donald Trump is expected to announce in his speech Sunday that he will not start his own party, but instead call for Republicans to unite as he returns to the political limelight in a keynote address at the Conservative Political Actions Conference.
‘We are not starting new parties, and we will not be dividing our power and our strength. Instead, we will be united and strong like never before,’ Trump will say, according to an excerpt of the speech obtained by Fox News.
Although Trump won’t officially announce anything in regards to his political future, Fox reports he will walk ‘right up to the line of announcing another campaign’ to take back the White House from President Joe Biden in 2024.
The speech is expected to last 90 minutes, minimum.

In calling for the Party to come together, Trump will also outline a ‘pathway’ for taking back the majority in Congress in 2022, including pushing his repeated claims of voter fraud and proposing ways to stop it.
The news that Trump will commit to the GOP comes after rumors emerged last month that he was considering creating his own political party and breaking with Republicans.
Stripped of his Twitter account, Trump’s only means of communication with the public have been through occasional statements released from the ‘Office of the 45th President’, which he formed after leaving Washington.
He also broke his media silence earlier this month when he joined Fox News by phone for a tribute to conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh, who died of cancer.
