Just a few weeks after leaving office, former President Donald Trump was back in the spotlight on Sunday.
At the beginning of his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, he asked the enthusiastic crowd if they missed him already before telling them that he’ll “continue to fight right by your side.”
He then dismissed reports that he was thinking about breaking off from the Republican Party and striking out on his own. “I am not starting a new party,” he said, claiming the idea was “fake news.” Instead, Trump predicted the GOP will “unite and be stronger than ever before.”
