While the former reality TV star Donald Trump has faced enormous criticism, several allegations and two impeachment trials, turns out he is still the number one choice for the United States election 2024.

Sasse leaves the chamber as the Senate voted to consider hearing from witnesses in the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.

"Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First".

He is one of seven Republicans who voted to convict Trump of "incitement of insurrection" on Saturday. We don't have a snowball's chance in hell of taking back the majority without Donald Trump.

A person familiar said that Trump wanted to mock McConnell for having multiple chins. "Mitch McConnell at its helm", Mr Trump said in a statement. "I think there's a whole bunch of stuff the party of Lincoln and Reagan needs to do to persuade people we have a 2030 agenda, not a 20-minute Twitter agenda".

Giuliani did not represent Trump in his impeachment trial because the attorney was a "witness" in the case and gave a speech at the pro-Trump rally that preceded the Capitol attack in which he told the crowd it was time for "trial by combat".

"This is a big moment for our country", Trump wrote, "and we can not let it pass by using third rate "leaders" to dictate our future".

"As much as the left wants to act like Republicans are only QAnon supporters, part of the problem is when I hear that, I automatically get very tribal", Ms.

But there is no federal prohibition on charging a former president for acts committed while in office. President Joe Biden has largely distanced himself from passing judgement on the trial or the verdict.

Hopefully they will not also read that Illinois Republican Party State officials retroactively censured former Rep and President Abraham Lincoln in the 2021 GOP Civil War.

"If you look at polling in the short-term, it surely appears that way", Sasse responded.

The suit traces the drawn-out effort by Mr Trump and Mr Giuliani to cast doubt on the election results even though courts across the country, and state election officials, repeatedly rejected their baseless allegations of election fraud.

The Kentucky Republican also released a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Monday doubling down on his rhetoric against Trump, saying he "bears moral responsibility" for the insurrection.

While a majority of the Senate, 57 of the 100 members, voted for conviction, it fell short of the two-thirds majority required. He then focused on what he believes the larger role impeachment trials serve. "His behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable, from attacking Vice President Mike Pence during the riot to praising the criminals after it ended".

Murkowski voted in line with Trump's positions 72.6% of the time while he was in office, according to the political website FiveThirtyEight.

Atlanta prosecutors opened a criminal investigation into whether Trump attempted to overturn his election loss in Georgia, including a January 2 phone call in which he urged the state's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to "find" enough votes to reverse Biden's narrow victory.

Trump's statement Tuesday adds McConnell to the list of Republicans whom the former President is targeting after they opposed him.
