1. Trump says he won't start new party, hints at 2024 run

Former President Donald Trump indicated on Sunday at the Conservative Political Action Conference that he was considering running for president again in 2024, but would not form a third party. Trump said instead he would stick with the Republican Party and work to support its efforts in the 2022 midterms and beyond, essentially declaring that he planned to remain a dominating force in the GOP. "We began it together four years ago and it is far from being over," Trump said of his assumption of leadership in the party in 2016. "Let there be no doubt we will be victorious and America will be stronger and greater than ever before." Trump attacked President Biden, as expected, saying that the Democrat has had "the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history."
