This Is When Donald Trump Will QUIT GOP Leadership
(TheRedWire.com) – Many Republicans believe Donald Trump was the most conservative president since Ronald Reagan. He overhauled regulations, lowered taxes, created an economic boom, and nominated three consequential Supreme Court Justices. On Sunday, August 7, Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) Chairman Matt Schlapp told Fox News the previous Commander in Chief would lead the Republican Party until his last breath because of all he did in his short time in office.
Despite losing the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden, Trump remains the undisputed leader of the GOP. On Saturday, August 6, he spoke to a rousing group at the CPAC. Over the last six months, the former president has racked up several endorsement wins in the primary elections. As of Tuesday, August 9, 180 candidates who received his endorsements won, and fewer than 20 lost.
The former president, dogged by investigations surrounding the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol, still remains popular with many GOP voters. https://t.co/3exwAps58C

According to the CPAC straw poll, 69% of attendees of the gathering support Trump in the upcoming 2024 election. Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis received 24% of the vote.
After the FBI raided his home on Monday, Republicans coalesced around the prospective candidate. Even those who encouraged the party to move on from Trump say the FBI’s unprecedented move benefited him significantly.
Many conservative leaders said the action was un-American, offensive, and disgusting. Trump doubled down on Tuesday, releasing a campaign-style video hinting at a 2024 presidential run.
The 2024 cycle may seem like a long time away, but at this rate, the presidential campaign will kick off sooner than usual.
