Axios reports that Trump is plotting a "show of force" speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in which he'll establish himself as the "presumptive 2024 nominee."

Trump's goal will be to establish that he is still in charge of the GOP, even though he no longer has the Oval Office or his Twitter account.

Even though Trump has still not decided on whether he's running in 2024, he is planning to use the 2022 election cycle to exact revenge by running primary challenges against Republicans who have crossed him, and he's expected to get help from state Republican Parties that have censured rebellious anti-Trump Republicans

State GOPs declare war on all Republican politicians who reject Trumpism.

Donald Trump left the White House over a month ago, and President Joe Biden has made it abundantly clear that he is sick to death of talking about the former president. Some Republicans feel the same way: Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska are among the conservatives who would love to see their party move on from Trumpism. But journalists Daniel Strauss and Tom McCarthy, in an article published by The Guardian on February 22, emphasize that at the state level, many Republicans are doubling down on Trumpism and declaring war on anyone in the GOP who refuses to bow down to Dear Leader.

"Republican state parties have been lashing out at elected officials of their own party in a sign of ongoing fealty to Donald Trump," Strauss and McCarthy explain. "The moves by state party officials are highly unusual and an indication of the heated internal battles the Republican Party is facing in the months and years to come as it struggles with the legacy of its capture by Trump, his allies and his loyal supporters."

Nearly half of Republicans say they would abandon the party as it is currently structured and join a new party if former  President Trump  was its leader, according to a new poll released Sunday. 

A Suffolk University-USA Today poll  found that  46 percent of Republicans said they would abandon the GOP and join the Trump party if the former president decided to create one. Only 27 percent said they would stay with the GOP, with the remainder indicating they would be undecided.

I think we have found the new RINO's: The faction of the republican Party who will go with Trump. I think that he would like to have a party named after him.

America missed it's chance to be rid of Donald Trump. 

When he escaped responsibility for his bizarre and un American behavior following the election , which culminated in an unprecedented riot in the halls of Congress that was instigated by Trump, Trump's almost immediate return to media and politics was locked in. At least half of Republicans still support the most disgraced politician in American history. 

Many people were extremely slow to acknowledge Trump's malignant effect on our country , and now they will be equally slow to realize he is still in control of MAGA.  Its time to give up on removing Trump from the national scene. He will be infecting the national discourse until the day he dies.

"He will be infecting the national discourse until the day he dies."

Hopefully sooner rather than later and hopefully behind bars

Unfortunately, or very fortunately the GOP bought ( it ) lock, stock and barrel.  ( It ) is all theirs.  I suggest they chase ( it ) down with a good belt of Windsor Canadian.

Right after I read this story I saw another where a majority of current Republicans love Trump and a third article where 19K people in PA have changed their voting registration from Republican to Independent after Jan 6th. I'll be really curious on how the mid-term Republican primaries play out next year. Is the Republican Party really fractured and, if so, how badly?

I can't wait to see him lose again. Not because i am particularly infatuated by the Democratic party at this time, but it will be humorous watching the lying bastard Trump get his shit handed to him AGAIN....

The best way for Trump to lose is in the R primary.

Trouble is, the remaining Trump sycophants will likely not vote if Trump is not nominated.   If they remain large enough a body then that could simply hand the election to the D nominee (who might, egad, be Harris).  

Trump (enabled by his sycophants) will continue to do damage to the nation.

Problem is..... Trump won't lose in the primary.  His cult followers will vote him to the top of the ticket to where he will once again get hammerer in the General election.

The GOP his hanging it's hat on passing laws which will disenfranchise, or at the very, least make it much more difficult for people of color to vote.  Even though there was no evidence of any outcome changing voter fraud, Red states have introduced dozens of new laws that would impact turnout at the polls.  The GOP can't win with ideas, so they have to resort to cheating.....

If the establishment wing of the party can generate someone without the name Bush AND they can stay ahead of Trump on messaging they may have a chance. There are enough "ex-Republican" voters paying attention now for it to be a simple walk in the park for Trump. For me it's going to be a wait and see and I may actually vote Republican this time in the primaries depending on the candidates.

Sit back, get your pop corn and a beverage ready and watch them tear each other apart.  Fun times.

Talk about putting the cart before the horse. A lot can happen in 4 years time.

Look at Hillary, she was the presumptive nominee for how long for the Democrats? They handed the nomination to her on a silver platter; and she then lost to Trump who spent far less money and time on the political trail. Of course the same thing happened to her with Obama.

Trump is a known quantity. Four years of campaigning and political positioning is going to get tiresome for even his most ardent supporters. He will become even more toxic to independents and blue dog Democrats than he already is. Someone (or several candidates) on the right will step forward to face off against Trump. It just takes one candidate with the right personality and mental toughness to defeat Trump (like Obama did with Hillary).

Trump is still living rent free in the lefts' minds.

So you still are condoning the killing and beating of police officers with American and Trump Flags?

I know those images will forever be burned in my mind.  Why aren't they in yours.....

This is just the former occupant of the White House's way of getting the same fools to keep contributing to his 'campaign'.
