Just moments before he takes the stage for the first time during Biden’s regime in North Carolina, President Trump issued a video statement.
What he said will send shockwaves through the political world.
President Trump promised:
We’re gonna take back the Senate, take back the House. We’re gonna take back the White House – sooner than you think!
Sooner than you think…
Let that sink in for a while.
The next presidential election is in 2024.
How can we take back the White House before then?
Unless things are happening behind the scenes that we cannot see?!
See President Trump’s statement for yourself below:
TRUMP: “We’re gonna take back the Senate, take back the House, we’re gonna take back the White House… and sooner than you think. It’s going to be really something special”

Of course, liberal heads are already exploding.
Keith Olbermann already took to Twitter to do another rant.
Here’s his angry and infuriated take:
BREAKING: In video before his Scampaign speech to @GOPofNC Trump says "we're gonna take back the White House sooner than you think."
There are no legal means to do this; it's a threat of ANOTHER coup.
We must overcome queasiness at indicting an ex-president: he is a Terrorist. pic.twitter.com/34FNNbeCJq

The UK’s Independent picked up on the story, which very few American news organizations have reported on.
As of this writing, even Fox News hasn’t reported on this.
According to the Independent:
Donald Trump is set to give a rare speech to the Republican Party of North Carolina’s annual convention on Saturday evening.
The former president will appear at the event in Greenville, North Carolina, as he is said to be urging friends to push a bizzare theory that he will be “reinstated” to office in August.
Mr Trump is “trying hard” to recruit journalists, politicians and other influential figures to get behind the idea that he can return to the White House, according to the conservative National Review magazine
The idea has become popular with Trump’s MAGA supporters and is based on the idea that Joe Biden’s election victory could be overturned following Republican “audits” of election results in Arizona and Georgia.
Mr Trump kicked off his political comeback with a speech at the right-wing Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) event in Florida in February.
He is also expected to address a CPAC event in Texas next month, and his aides have talked about him possibly holding rallies in Florida, Georgia and Ohio over the summer.
This comes on the heels of rumors that Trump may be considering becoming House Speaker.
If so, he could lead the effort to impeach Joe Biden.
So, Trump runs for Florida House seat in 2022, wins by a landslide, all the excitement leads to republicans gaining the House majority, Trump easily gets elected Speaker, and then drives impeachment of Biden for stealing the election and other acts of treason. Very conceivable.

I don't think anyone is having more fun right now than President Donald J. Trump.
"'So interesting': Trump pitched on idea to run for House, become Speaker" https://t.co/L3W6WvlTwP

The idea was pitched to President Trump during an interview.
Trump said the idea was “so interesting” and perhaps “better.”
The Hill reports:
Former President Trump on Friday called a proposal that he run for the House in 2022 to try to win the Speaker’s gavel “interesting,” though the chances of him actually doing so remain low.
Trump was asked about the proposal by far-right radio host Wayne Allyn Root on Friday after Steve Bannon, a former adviser to the ex-president, floated the idea.
“That’s so interesting,” Trump said.
“Yeah, you know it’s very interesting,” Trump added, saying that others had suggested he run for Senate. “But you know what, your idea might be better. It’s very interesting.”
Trump has floated a potential comeback bid for the White House in 2024 since leaving office earlier this year, though speculation over a congressional campaign and an opportunity to lead the House has not gained significant traction.
Still, the proposal underscores the eagerness many in the GOP have for Trump to make some kind of return to politics.
The logistics of a House run would be complicated for Trump, who would have to figure out what district to run in after the redistricting process is completed. The former president has thus far been mainly interested in endorsing congressional candidates rather than becoming one, and he is expected to resume his signature rallies this summer.
While every Speaker in U.S. history has been a member of the lower chamber, the Constitution does not stipulate that to be a requirement to lead the House.
Stay tuned for more details.
Tonight, President Trump will speak in North Carolina.
The fact that he dropped this statement just moments before taking the stage tells us that there is a clear plan and communications strategy in place.
