Former President Donald Trump will tell GOP donors on Saturday that Republicans will win back the U.S. legislature in the 2022 midterms and the White House in 2024.
The combative former president is expected to make the remarks during his keynote address at the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) donor summit in Florida, according to a draft copy of his speech obtained by multiple news outlets.
The closed-door event mostly took place at the Four Seasons resort in Palm Beach. However, guests were transported to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort to hear him speak.
“We are gathered tonight to talk about the future of the Republican Party – and what we must do to set our candidates on a course to victory,” Trump is expected to say, according to remarks obtained by The Associated Press.
“I stand before you this evening filled with confidence that in 2022, we are going to take back the House and we are going to reclaim the Senate – and then in 2024, a Republican candidate is going to win the White House.”
Trump is also expected to take aim at President Biden, slamming his 2020 election opponent for not addressing Congress within his first few weeks in office.
“With an agenda this unpopular, it is no wonder that Joe Biden is the first new president in modern times not to address a joint session of Congress within his first few weeks,” Trump’s speech reads, according to CNN.
Trump is also expected to tell donors that the Republican Party will be able to leverage immigration and the Biden administration’s handling of the issue to win back the House, Senate and the White House.
“Illegal Border crossings are now higher than at any point since 2006,” Fox News reported Trump’s prepared remarks read. “On this issue alone, we can win the House, the Senate, and the White House.”
It however remains unclear whether or not Trump is eyeing another bid for the White House.
