As Trump set to appear at CPAC, Biden sticks to weekend routine

President Joe Biden attended service at his decades-long parish church in Delaware as he spends the weekend at his Wilmington home. Biden’s White House has made it clear it plans to ignore Donald Trump’s speech on Sunday (February 28) to a conservative conference in Florida, where the former president is expected to go on the attack against his successor.

It’s a strategy that has worked before, political veterans and historians say. 

Biden’s approval ratings in Gallup polls have remained above 55% since he took office on Jan. 20, and support for the White House’s $1.9 trillion COVID-relief package is higher. 

Meanwhile, Republicans are at loggerheads over how to deal with Trump’s legacy.

Several of the seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump on an impeachment charge over the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol have faced censure votes at home. 

Others, like House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, have taken great pains to walk back initial criticism of Trump’s role on Jan. 6, when he urged his supporters to march on the Capitol.

On Sunday, Trump is expected to signal a run in 2024 and put Republicans who supported his impeachment on notice, while accusing Biden of opening the doors to immigrants. 

The White House plans to shrug.
