Trump remains a popular Republican candidate for a 2024 run within the GOP and he has tightened his grip on the party since his impeachment trial.
Liz Cheney, who has repeatedly criticized Trump for his efforts to overturn the election result, was this week ousted from House leadership by colleagues who were angered by her criticism of Trump.
Sen. Mitt Romney, who has also criticized the president, was booed and called a “traitor” by members of the audience at Utah’s GOP conference earlier in May.
Trump has not held a rally since January 6, when he spoke at a “Stop the Steal” march in Washington, DC, which was attended by his supporters. Hundreds of them went on to violently breach the Capitol building in an attempt to overturn the presidential election.
The attempted siege resulted in five deaths and saw Trump face an impeachment trial, in which he was acquitted.
Before and during his presidency, Trump held dozens of rallies across the United States which he favored as an effective way of communicating directly with his supporters.
The former president has repeatedly indicated that he could run for office again in 2024.
