Former US President Donald Trump is still the 'future' of the Republican party, his eldest son has said.
Speaking to Fox News' Sean Hannity ahead of his dad's weekend speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump Jr said: "If you're reading the room and you're intelligent, you realise that Donald Trump is still the future of the Republican Party."
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.
"Congressmen and senators can actually start fighting for the American people the way that Donald Trump did," he said.
"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."
The sold-out CPAC conference will take place this weekend in Orlando, Florida, this weekend, and will mark Trump's first major public address since his departure from the White House.
The theme for this year is 'America Uncanceled' and will explore cancel culture, with Trump due to speak on Sunday afternoon.
Speaking to Newsmax on Wednesday, Trump adviser Jason Miller said: "President Trump will be laying out... a future path for the Republican Party.
"We want to go and win back the House and the Senate for Republicans in 2022, but there are [...] a few places where there may be Republican-held seats where we could get a good 'America First' upgrade."
According to NBC News, over the course of the three-day event there will be panel discussions about 'antifa, election fraud, alleged censorship by the media and Big Tech, socialism, immigration and The Awokening of Corporate America'.
