Former President Donald Trump has a massive show of force planned for this weekend — and it has put Republicans and Democrats both on notice.
“I may not have Twitter or the Oval Office,” Trump plans to tell conservative activists in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2021 this Saturday. “But I’m still in charge.”

According to Fox News’ Sean Hannity, the overarching theme of his address to supporters would be that he remains the head of the Republican Party, not establishment leaders like Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-K.Y.
In anticipation of a possible 2024 presidential run, Trump’s speech will demand the party to stay loyal to his populist agenda that rankled neoconservatives and globalists throughout his first term.
“Trump effectively is the Republican Party,” Trump advisor Jason Miller recently told Fox News. “The only chasm is between Beltway insiders and grassroots Republicans around the country. When you attack President Trump, you’re attacking the Republican grassroots.”
Since Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20, moderate Republicans and corporate donors have reportedly met behind-the-scenes to talk about forming an anti-Trump coalition or even a new third party.

The former president’s advisers also have reported plans to meet with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in the coming weeks to plan his next political move. That includes a “framework for kingmaking” in the upcoming midterm elections.
Trump has previously warned establishment figures that opposing him and his supporters in the upcoming 2022 primaries would cause him to form a new Patriot Party — and a recent Hill/HarrisX poll reported that 64 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters are willing to follow Trump into that new party.
But don’t take our word for it. We want to hear from you.
Do you want Trump to remain in control of the Republican Party?
Or do you want the establishment to retake power heading towards the 2022 and 2024 elections?
