Washington DC: Donald Trump is returning to Washington as Republican rivals plot a potential primary challenge and lawmakers investigate his role in the January 6 uprising.

The former president will deliver a keynote address on Tuesday at the America First Agenda Summit, a conservative convention. His remarks follow a House committee hearing in which he stood indifferently, even vindictively, for hours as a crowd of his supporters battled police and lawmakers chased through the halls of the Capitol. did.

Trump is unlikely to announce a third presidential bid during his speech in Washington, according to advisers. However, the notoriously unstable former leader may change his mind on his way from the airport to the city.

A day before speaking, Trump's former vice president, Mike Pence, will make his own remarks, highlighting the rivalry that has followed Trump's refusal to participate in his plan to reverse his re-election defeat to Pence. developed between two men.

After his defeat and the chaos at the Capitol on January 6, Trump fled Washington in disgrace on the morning of President Joe Biden's inauguration.

His return, which comes at a time when Biden has one of the lowest approval ratings in his presidency and is dealing with domestic anger over foreign crises as well as inflation and culture war issues, has sparked an impending campaign announcement. fueled speculation.
"He loves that the news is about whether he's ready to announce when he's going to announce it," said Barry Bennett, a Republican strategist who worked on Trump's 2016 campaign. "He enjoys all the media speculation and isn't afraid of a fight, but when you make an announcement, you have to do an FEC filing."
Bennett believes Trump will wait to avoid triggering federal election law requirements and fundraising limits.

Trump has raised US$137 million from early 2021 to the end of June, according to Federal Election Commission records, with the vast majority coming from his dedicated army of small-dollar donors.
His political action committee, Save America, has US$103 million in the bank, but the contribution limit would prevent him from using more than a total of US$5,000 for his presidential campaign.
Some congressional Republicans would prefer Trump not to make an announcement to avoid complicating his message ahead of November's midterm elections, in which the Republican Party is expected to take control of the House and possibly the Senate.

In generations, no presidential candidate has sought a third consecutive major-party nomination in the United States. Only Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms as president in the late 1800s.
Other potential Republican candidates for the presidency in 2024 include Trump's former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley, and Florida senators Rick Scott and Ted Cruz. It's not clear how big the field will be if Trump walks in.
