Donald Trump has given his first speech since leaving office as US president and hinted at running in the 2024 elections.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) he said: "Who knows. I may decide to beat them for a third time." He went on to add that he 'may' decide to run - suggesting he's not 100 percent certain.

The 74-year-old also told the audience: "It is far from over," speaking about the 'incredible journey' him and his supporters started. He added: "We will be victorious and America will be stronger and greater than ever before."

The former president, who left office on 20 January, cleared up rumours about starting a new political party.

He told the conference, which is being held in Orlando, Florida: "I am not starting a new party. That was fake news.

"We're not starting new parties. You know, they kept saying, 'He's going to start a brand new party.' We have the Republican Party. It's going to unite and be stronger than ever before," in response the crowd cheered.

He joked: "Wouldn't that be brilliant - let's start a new party and let's divide our vote, so that you can never win. No, we're not interested in that. We have tremendous [polling figures]."

Just days ago Trump's eldest son said that his dad was still the 'future' of the Republican party when he spoke to Fox News' Sean Hannity ahead of the CPAC speech.

Donald Trump Jr added that any Republicans who support his former president father are 'following an America First agenda' to 'fight for the hard-working men and women' of the United States.

"Those people who are being displaced by illegals, those people who are being swept aside by the Democrat Party, who has just flagrantly ignored them for decades, Donald Trump is all over that," he said.

Trump Jr also argued that corporations cutting ties with Republicans following the 6 January Capitol Hill riot was a 'good' thing.

He said: "Congressmen and senators can actually start fighting for the American people the way that Donald Trump did. The Republican Party isn't going to be bound to those corporate interests anymore.

"So I love that they are making that link and breaking it, because we need more of that and we need candidates and people who will go to bat, who will go to war and fight for the American working class and make sure we put them first."
