Former President Trump continues to raise his hand to answer the call for another run to represent the Republican Party at next year’s presidential election.
The former President showed his clout at the close of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference held near Washington recently.
The right-wing conservative event is part of an established traditional campaign activity staged by the Republican Party.
Trump was in a no holds barred move as he pitched himself as the right man to do battle against the Democrat in 2024.
“In 2016, I declared: I am your voice. Today, I add, I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed: I am your retribution,” Trump told the CPAC attendees.
He captured the conference’s Saturday evening straw poll (unofficial balloting among event registrants) for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
In the survey, Trump trounced runner-up Ron DeSantis, the governor of the southern U.S. state of Florida, 62% to 20%.
It was the fifth consecutive time Trump has won the CPAC straw poll.
Trump, whose speech lasted an hour and 42 minutes, revisited familiar grievances aired at his campaign rallies and repeated the false claim he won the 2020 presidential election.
He made no mention of any other declared or expected Republican presidential candidates, instead heaping criticism on the Democrat who defeated him in the 2020 presidential election.
“Joe Biden is leading us into oblivion,” Trump said, adding, “We’re going to have World War III if something doesn’t happen fast.”
“I am the only candidate who can make this promise,” he said. “I will prevent World War III.”
Trump also vowed, if elected again, that he would settle Russia’s war on Ukraine before he arrived back in the Oval Office.
