McCarthy, Cheney clash over whether Trump should speak at CPAC

Awkward moment as House Republican leaders clash over Trump speaking at CPAC

'There's no incumbent, ' McConnell said.

'He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country, ' Trump said in a statement.

McCarthy is slated to speak Saturday at the CPAC convention in Orlando, Florida.

But is he still the party's uncontested leader, despite losing to Joe Biden?

CPAC will be the first time Mr Trump has stood in front of a microphone since leaving office.

But those efforts could prove hard to maintain when Trump speaks to the Conservative Political Action Committee on Sunday and likely wades into the party's efforts retake congressional majorities in 2022.

Less than a month after excoriating Donald Trump in a blistering floor speech, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that he would "absolutely" support the former president again if he secured the Republican nomination in 2024.

Donald Trump's influence on the elections is becoming clearer by the day.

The Hill called McConnell's declaration a "remarkable about-face" by the Kentucky Republican, who has delivered scathing public rebukes of Trump in recent weeks over the former president's actions surrounding the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters.

"He spoke very favorably about his relationship with President Trump", Banks told CNN. Numerous 10 House Republicans who backed his January 13 impeachment are facing potential primary election challenges for 2022, when control of both chambers of Congress will be at stake.

Kim Kardashian 'files for divorce' from husband Kanye West - details
The news publication stated that Kim Kardashian's divorce from Kanye West , 43, is "as amicable as a divorce can be". Another source added, "There is very little hope of reconciliation". "It would have to be a miracle.

Rep. Steve Scalise, the second-ranking House Republican, who also has visited Trump in Florida, shook his head.

Tensions over Trump intensified Wednesday at a Republican press conference. The Atlantic will almost certainly run a ponderous dispatch from the conference about how Trump is splitting the Republican Party, even as polls show that most GOP voters still support Trump, with nearly 60 percent saying he should play a "major role" in the party moving forward.

You can already see the headlines: "The Ten Craziest Things Said At CPAC", which will consist of three things that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe to be true (like, there was fraud in the 2020 election) and seven things that nearly no one thinks no one at CPAC actually said.

"I do believe that impeachment was wrong and that Toomey did the wrong thing", Merrick said.

"Yes, he should [speak]", McCarthy said curtly, turning quickly away from the reporter who asked the question.

Predicting another Trump candidacy now would be "rank speculation", Ayres said, and pointed to the "mountain of financial and legal challenges" Trump faces, including his tax returns and alleged hush-money payments before the 2016 election.

Feehery too is unsure whether Trump will seek the nomination, rather than remaining a kingmaker. "I think it was short-sighted, but I also think it was purposeful and I think that's the problem". "Speaking at CPAC helps him achieve that objective".

But Senator Lindsey Graham, a Trump ally, said supporting the ex-president will be crucial for their party to take back Congress in next year's midterm elections and gear up for 2024.

Asked whether Trump runs in 2024, Graham deadpanned: "Stay tuned".

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says he would vote for Donald Trump should he become the nominee for president in 2024. "Most aren't willing to pay that price".
