Donald Trump hints at running for US president again during his speech at CPAC - ABC News

In his first speech since leaving the White House, former US President Donald Trump has said he will not start his own political party.

Addressing the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Mr Trump hinted that he may attempt to run for the presidency again in 2024.

Early in his speech, the former president dismissed speculation he wanted to start his own political party.

Mr Trump's relationship with the party appeared somewhat fractured when a handful of Republicans in both houses of Congress sided with Democrats on wanting to impeach him.

"We're not starting new parties. We have the Republican Party. It's going to be united and be stronger than ever before. I am not starting a new party," he said.

Mr Trump also attacked current President Joe Biden, to whom he lost last November's presidential election.

"Our movement of proud, hard-working American patriots is just getting started, and in the end we will win. We will win," Mr Trump said.

The former president hinted he would consider running for the White House again in 2024.

"I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we began together four years ago is far from over," he said.

"We are gathered this afternoon to talk about the future — the future of our movement, the future of our party, and the future of our beloved country."

"Who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time."
