DONALD Trump is expected to reject starting his own party and urge Republicans to unite behind him in his first speech since leaving office.
Trump will speak today at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where he is expected to slam his successor Joe Biden.
The former president is also expected to walk right up to the line of declaring himself a candidate in the 2024 election, without actually committing.
He is, however, expected to commit to staying in the Republican party, which has been divided partially due to some prominent members refusing to stay loyal to Trump, especially after January's Capitol riots.
"We are not starting new parties, and we will not be dividing our power and our strength," Trump will say, according to an excerpt of the speech obtained by Fox News.
"Instead, we will be united and strong like never before."
The speech is expected to last at least 90 minutes, and the former president is also expected to take shots at Republicans who voted to impeach him during his second impeachment trial.
Trump aide Corey Lewandowski told Fox News that the rumor that the former president was going to start a new party was "fake news," because Trump is "the head of the Republican party."
"He has been the head of the Republican party," Lewandowski said. "He's the most important endorsement for any Republican running for office in a primary or a general election, and that's going to continue to be the case."
He said that Trump's priority during his CPAC speech will be paving the way for how Republicans will win back Congress in the 2022 elections.
Democrats currently hold a slim majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
"He's going to lay out how we're going to take back the House and the Senate in 2022, because that's the first mission," Lewandowski said.
CPAC, held over the weekend in Orlando, Florida, has already featured speeches from some Republicans who are considered frontrunners to run against Biden in the 2024 election.

The former president's son, Donald Trump Jr, also made an appearance, where he said Biden's first 33 days in office had been a "disaster."
"The lies the media told you wouldn't happen are all happening," Don Jr quipped. "But hey at least they have a diverse cabinet, right?"
