In his first major TV interview since leaving the White House, President Donald Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the Republican party – which some argue is fractured between MAGA loyalists and classic conservatives – needs to become united behind the MAGA agenda to retake Congress in 2022 and beyond.
“Should this now be the Republican Party agenda?” Hannity asked during the hour-long interview which aired Monday night. “Should anybody that wants to run for the House or the Senate, should they take this ‘Make America Great’ agenda and fight for those things that you fought for the four years you were president?”
“If they want to win, yes,” Trump stated.
“We’ve expanded the Republican Party. If you want to win and win big, you have to do that. You have to do it,” he added.
While Trump has not communicated whether he officially plans to run in the 2024 presidential election, the former US president has been rubbing elbows with the likes of many Republican heavyweights, like DeSantis and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.
