WASHINGTONNon is just counting trumpiani. The former president will speak today on stage at Cpac, "the Conservative political action conference, the annual gathering of the republican right, in the course in Orlando, Florida. There are those who bet that Donald Trump will launch his candidacy for the presidential election in 2024; however, those who expect a speech projected on the elections midterm, in 2022; those who still provides a long tirades against the "victory stolen" in 2020.
The wait of the fans
In any case, there is a lot of expectation. A month after leaving the White House, Trump returns to the center of national attention. The fans are reached by many. The sculptor in california Tommy Zegan has built a golden statue of the leader: in one hand the preamble of the Constitution ("We the people..."); in the other, a magic wand surmounted by a star. Beyond the many political analysis, perhaps that is the best picture that explains the time trumpiano.
The end of the isolation
Immediately after the assault on the Capitol, January 6, Trump was slipped in isolation. The establishment republican seemed ready to "spurgarlo" from the party, as told by the leader of the senate Mitch McConnell. But the audience, the agenda, the cheers of Orlando tell another story. In recent weeks, the former president has not eased the grip on the apparatus, and especially about the funds of the party. And now it looks to America as a kind of anti-pope-in-exile in Mar-a-Lago, dethroned, not Joe Biden, the usurper who sits in the White House. McConnell did not attend the convention. So as not to have seen the figures who have criticized Trump. As the former Un ambassador Nikki Haley, nor, even less, the number three in the hierarchy of the republican in the Chamber, Liz Cheney, who voted in favor of impeachment. He also weighs in the absence of the former vice president, Mike Pence.
In the four days of the rally, from Thursday to today, and therefore there has been no political confrontation. The schedule of the interventions, of the workshops is rotated on practical themes in the great lie trumpiana, the "stolen election", sconfessata by the courts and by institutional bodies across the Country. The Cpac this year, it became a census of the forces deployed with the former president. Here are the loyal soldiers, the few remaining survivors of the government, such as former secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. Here is the patrol of the senators, and in which there are three names: Ted Cruz (Texas), Josh Hawley (Missouri) and Tom Cotton (Arkansas). Their actions were harsh, at times incendiary. As if the riots of January 6, they never happened. But, probably, this is the first objective: to evaporate the memory of those disorders and the responsibilities of the president
The governor emerging
The political premise is indicated with boldness by the senator from South Carolina Lindsey Graham: "No Trump, the republican party is not going anywhere. And in any case, today, the former president is more dominant McConnell". It's a concept that also applies to many emerging. Only one example, that of the governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, 49 years old. Washington is considered one of the most interesting figures for the reconstruction of the political culture of the conservative, more attentive to the tradition of liberal capitalism that the excesses trumpiani. But even Noem has resisted the lure of the anti-pope. The organizers have inserted between the speaker of the Cpac and Donald jr, the eldest son of the former president, has served only to give you a fundraiser in the resort of Mar-a-Lago.
