However, I don't think the rest of us can.

According to a survey from Rasmussen Reports published last week, it found that 70 percent of likely voters said the recent impeachment proceedings against Trump either didn't make much difference in their opinion of the former president, or they now have a better opinion of him. The survival of the Trump-led Republican Party was at stake.

One of his longtime advisors told Axios' Mike Allen that his speech will be a "show of force", and meant to show that he still rules over the GOP, even though he is no longer president and has been barred from major social media platforms.

"Let's say somebody gets impeached, typically your numbers would go down, they would go down like a dead balloon".

Trump's tax records are not supposed to become public as part of the prosecutors' criminal investigation, but the high court's action is a blow to Trump because he has long fought on so many fronts to keep his tax records shielded from view.

Donald Trump is mad and he's plotting his revenge.

CPAC takes place from February 25-28 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, God help us all. Can Democrats and a reformed Republican Party work cooperatively to save us from the slippery slope we are on toward democracy's failure?

The Manitoba government says one of the people enforcing COVID-19 public health orders was assaulted while on duty last week. A total of 585,707 vaccine doses have been administered in the province so far, according to provincial data.

He is also expected to challenge the "disastrous amnesty and border policies" of his successor, President Joe Biden, the source added.

Former vice-president Mike Pence has declined a CPAC invitation, politico.com reported. Michigan Representative Peter Meijer, who voted for impeachment, has been called a "traitor" who "betrayed" the GOP base. The former president's allies in the House tried to strip Cheney of her leadership post and have already begun campaigning against her. The GOP took the path of cowardice. In Utah, where Republican Senator Mitt Romney voted to convict and Republican Senator Mike Lee voted to acquit, the state GOP released a statement praising its senators for voting their conscience and expressing their independence.

Trump, who told his supporters following his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial that 'our historic, patriotic and handsome movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun, ' continues to hold majority support almost a month after leaving office. "There is power in our differences as a political party".

But some in the GOP, mostly moderates, are now publicly questioning what influence and role he should have and where the party is going.

A Trump adviser told Axios that Trump is now bent on revenge, saying his CPAC appearance will be a "show of force".

According to Axios, some Trump allies believe he will simply continue to publicly flirt with the idea of running for president again but ultimately not follow through, because he knows the threat gives him leverage over other Republicans, as well as the thing he craves the most: attention.
