Donald Trump Being Considered Among Potential 2024 Candidates By Republican Party

The Republican Party are set to invite Donald Trump to address its Spring meeting which also serves as a gathering for potential 2024 presidential candidates.

The meeting is said to be held on the weekend of April 9 to April 11 and it will be located in Palm Beach, Florida. Which is ideal really, considering that's where Mr Trump moved to when he left the White House on 20 January.

It's is believed that the 74-year-old could be mulling over another presidential bid, with the MailOnline suggesting that he may be looking at launching a third political party called the Patriot Party.

If the former president does opt to run again, the Republican National Convention (RNC) will stay neutral, according to the chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

Speaking to Associated Press, she said: "The party has to stay neutral. I'm not telling anybody to run or not to run in 2024," when she was asked whether she'd like to see Trump run, she added: "That's going to be up to those candidates going forward. What I really do want to see him do, though, is help us win back majorities in 2022."

After meeting with the Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday (28 January), Trump released a statement boasting about his power.

A readout of the meeting from Save America PAC said: "President Trump's popularity has never been stronger than it is today, and his endorsement means more than perhaps any endorsement at any time."

One thing that would certainly stop him from running for president is his impending impeachment trial, which - if convicted - could prevent him from ever holding federal office again.

He is being tried for inciting the violent riots which took place on 6 January in a bid to change the presidential results.

Trump's trial is set to take place next month. The former POTUS has strongly denied that his speech, which took place just hours before the riots, influenced those who took part.

Shortly before, Trump told his supporters: "We're going to walk down to the Capitol, and we're going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women, and we're probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them, because you'll never take back our country with weakness."
