Trump back in Washington for the first time since leaving the White House
Former US President Donald Trump returned to Washington on Tuesday, the first since his tumultuous departure from the White House in 2021 and the chaos of the assault on the Capitol.
The billionaire, who is flirting more and more openly with the idea of running for president in 2024, will speak at an event of the America First Policy Institute, a think tank run by his allies.
His speech comes days after the conclusion of a series of well-attended public hearings by the House Investigative Committee on the Capitol Storm, whose members have insisted on his responsibility for the attack.
The Republican maintains – without evidence – that the 2020 election against Joe Biden was stolen from him, but the spokesperson for the America First Policy Institute assured that Donald Trump will look to the future, not the past, on Tuesday .
“He will hold a political strategy speech,” Marc Lotter told CNN.
The hearings of the parliamentary commission of inquiry – which revealed the backstage of the attack and the attempts of the ex-president to overturn the result of the election to stay in power – seem to have harmed Donald Trump.
Joe Biden, who at the start of his presidency tried not to pronounce the name of his predecessor, castigated Monday his inaction during the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
– Middle Ages –
As Donald Trump observed what was happening from “the comfort” of the White House, “brave police officers lived through a hell worthy of the Middle Ages (…) in the face of a raging crowd who believed the lies of the defeated president”, he denounced.
Donald Trump, 76, retains a central place in the Republican community. He appears to have retained a core of loyal supporters, which would put him in pole position should he decide to seek the nomination.
But the critics are damaging his image, allowing his rivals – such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – to gain ground.
Nearly half of Republicans voting in the primary would prefer a candidate other than Donald Trump, according to a recent New York Times and Siena College poll.
Last week, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post, owned by the influential Murdoch family, published editorials criticizing Donald Trump’s behavior on January 6, 2021.
In an unusually critical text, the New York Post claimed that the billionaire had shown that he was “unworthy” to return to the White House.
