Trump returns to DC for first time since leaving White House to deliver policy speech

Former President Donald Trump visited Washington, D.C. for the first time since he boarded Air Force One on Jan. 20, 2021, looking to promote the same initiatives his administration pursued during his term in office, according to Fox News.

Trump will speak at the America First Agenda Summit, which is being organized by the American First Policy Institute, a conservative think organization. While the country waits for his anticipated announcement regarding a 2024 White House run, the former president will promote his ideals.

“I believe it will be a very policy-focused, forward-leaning speech, very much like a State of the Union 5.0,” AFPI President Brooke Rollins said.

AFPI, one of the numerous Trump-allied organizations that have continued to advance his policies after he left office, is made up of several former Trump administration officials.

Trump’s keynote speech on Tuesday will be his first trip to the capital since he left on Air Force One on January 20, 2021, the day President Biden took the oath of office.

Trump will focus his speech on crime and public safety, according to a representative for the former president named Taylor Budowich.

“President Trump sees a nation in decline that is driven, in part, by rising crime and communities becoming less safe under Democrat policies,” Budowich said.

“His remarks will highlight the policy failures of Democrats, while laying out an America First vision for public safety that will surely be a defining issue during the midterms and beyond.”

Since leaving office, Trump has accused Republicans who either did not try to rig the election in his favor or who refused to declare Biden’s victory fraudulent for his unfounded allegations that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

Trump has been urged by some aides to look past 2020 as he anticipates running for president in 2024.

The House committee looking into the riot on Jan. 6, 2021, is still looking into the former president’s involvement in the events leading up to and during the attack on the Capitol as Trump delivers his AFPI speech.

The panel wants to demonstrate that Trump lied about the outcome of the election, encouraged his followers to storm the Capitol, and then failed to take action to stop protesters from holding ongoing demonstrations.
