Trump resumes campaign to reclaim power for Republican Party
Donald Trump has just left office as United States president only to resume his campaign for the Republican Party to win back the House of Representatives in 2022, reports claim
Trump met with US House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in Florida in order to save their party’s future while the leadership of the Congress is appearing eager to present a united front with Trump.
Winning back the House of Representatives from Democrats in 2022 was the centre of discussion between Trump and McCarthy.
“President Trump’s popularity has never been stronger than it is today, and his endorsement means more than perhaps any endorsement at any time,” the report said.
Recall that McCarthy stood by Trump during his unproven claim of election fraud but took a different stand when he (Trump) was accused of inciting his supporters to attack the US Capitol on January 6.
However, the House Minority Leader appeared back in the former President’s graces, as the men grinned broadly in a handout photograph taken in an ornate room reminiscent of a European palace.
“Today, President Trump committed to helping elect Republicans in the House and Senate in 2022,” McCarthy said in a statement that also attacked Democrats for “impeaching a president who is now a private citizen.”
“A united conservative movement will strengthen the bonds of our citizens and uphold the freedoms our country was founded on,” McCarthy added.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th President of America on the 20th of January.
The House had earlier impeached Trump after he was accused of inciting his supporters to storm the US Capitol where the Congress had converged to certify Biden’s win.
