DONALD Trump says he has no plans to launch a new political party, telling a conservative conference in Florida that it would split the Republican vote.
The former US-president said this at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando on Sunday.
In his first speech since Democrat Joe Biden became president, he also hinted that he might run for office again in 2024.
Mr Trump strongly criticised his successor, saying US policy had gone from “America first to America last”.
The speech comes weeks after Mr Trump was acquitted in an impeachment trial.
His appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) was indicative of his continued influence over the Republican Party.
However, the former president remains banned from social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, over his response to January’s deadly riot at the US Capitol.
He has been living at his Mar-a-Lago Florida golf resort since leaving the White House in January.
