On Sunday, former President Donald Trump spoke publicly for the first time since vacating the White House on January 20 at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida.
I couldn't help but think he might have felt excited about being in the spotlight again, and his voice being heard since, well, you know, he no longer has a Twitter account.
Also, the golden statue presented at the conference (sort of) in likeness to him may have added to the joy, despite it being created in Mexico, the country he tried to build a wall against. During the speech, the Trump alluded to the idea he is considering running for president again in 2024.
"The hardest working people, hard-working American patriots, it's just getting started and in the end we will win," Trump said at the conference before alluding to his consideration for the 2024 presidential bid. In reference to rumors about Trump starting a third party, he mentioned the following: "We have the Republican Party. It's going to unite and be stronger than ever before."
He continued: "I am not starting a new party. That was fake news, fake news. No. Wouldn't that be brilliant? Let's start a new party and let's divide our vote so that you can never win. "

Instead of the classic "you're fired" declaration, Former President Donald Trump decided to send in a somewhat formal resignation letter to one of the entertainment industry's largest unions on Thursday.
Additionally, the former President wasn't afraid to speak his mind and talk about people unpleasantly, especially his disapproval of the Biden administration. He believes that President Joe Biden's first month in office was the worst in modern history.
"Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history, that's true. Already the Biden administration has proved that they are anti-jobs, anti-family anti-borders, anti-energy, anti-women, and anti-science," said Trump about President Biden's administration.
"In just one short month we have gone from America first to America last. Think about it, right? America last. There is no better example than the new and horrible crisis on our Southern border."
This seems quite contradictory given Trump's incitement of the Capitol Hill riots (although he was acquitted in the Senate impeachment trial for the second time) and his rhetoric. But hey, do and say what makes you feel better about yourself, I guess.
