Mr Trump is going (back) to Washington. The former president will return to the country’s capital on Tuesday, marking his first visit to the city since leaving office last year.

Trump will deliver the keynote address at a summit held by the America First Policy Institute, a think tank formed by some of his former White House advisers.

AFPI leaders have said the America First Agenda summit will focus on the Republican party’s plans to fight inflation and improve the U.S. immigration system, but that agenda is unlikely to deter Trump from his election lies. to be distributed by 2020.

The summit comes less than a week after the selected House committee investigating the January 6 insurgency held its second primetime hearing, which focused on Trump’s inaction during the deadly attack on the Capitol. The commission outlined how Trump refused to intervene for hours and instead watched television coverage of the violence, even as some of his closest advisers pleaded with him to take action.

Trump is expected to confront the commission’s charges in his speech on Tuesday as he is determined to criticize those who did not support his efforts to undo the results of the 2020 election.

During a speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference last month in Nashville, Tennessee, Trump again attacked Mike Pence, his former vice president, for refusing to interfere with congressional certification of victory. from Joe Biden on January 6.

“Mike Pence had a chance to be great. He had a chance to be honest historical,” Trump said. [former Attorney General] Bill Barr and the rest of these weak people, Mike – and I’m saying it unfortunately because I like him – but Mike didn’t have the courage to act.”

The select committee has shown how Trump’s press campaign on Pence incited his supporters to shout “Hang Mike Pence!” chanted. as they stormed the Capitol. According to the commission, Pence was only 40 feet from the crowd on Jan. 6, when he was evacuated from the Senate Chamber for security reasons. A former Trump administration official told investigators that members of Pence’s security division were so concerned for their safety that they called relatives to say goodbye.

Pence should have had his own opportunity to explain the committee’s revelations on Monday, as he was due to speak at an event for the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. The event was delayed due to bad weather in Washington, which affected Pence’s flight.

Trump’s speech comes as both he and Pence contemplate presidential campaigns in 2024. Trump has been teasing the idea of ​​a Washington comeback since he left office last year, and he has recently given more hints that an announcement could be coming soon.

Pence’s speech at the Heritage Foundation is the latest in a series of public appearances for the former vice president, which has fueled speculation about his 2024 plans. In addition to his busier speech schedule, Pence has recently formed his own political advocacy group and visited battlefield states that could decide the next president.

But both Trump and Pence will have their work cut out for them if they run for office in 2024. According to a New York Times/Siena College poll taken this month, nearly half of Republican primary voters said they would support anyone other than Trump if he ran again in 2024. Only 6% of those voters said they would. Pence in the primaries.

Trump’s approval score also remains alarmingly low as Republicans hope to regain control of the White House by 2024. A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Trump, while 55% have an unfavorable impression.

The winner of the Republican primary in 2024 will (most likely) face Biden, who has seen his own approval rating plummet in recent months as high inflation and the war in Ukraine have soured the country’s mood. A majority of Democrats now say they prefer another candidate for 2024.

Trump will try to capitalize on Biden’s vulnerabilities with his speech on Tuesday — if he can avoid fixating too much on his election lies.
