Former President Donald Trump postponed a press conference he had planned to proceed in Florida supposedly in the anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by his supporters.

On Tuesday evening he stated that he would instead discuss his grievances at a rally he has planned in Arizona later this month. Trump is predicted to use the group discussion to rail against the congressional committee on investigating the events of Jan. 6, when a mob of his supporters violently stormed the Capitol in a trial to halt the peaceful transfer of power, and to repeat his lies about the 2020 election.

Trump continues to falsely insist that the election was “stolen” which the “real” insurrection was on Nov. 3, 2020, the day Democrat Joe Biden won a 306-232 body victory. On the alternative side, the Senate Republicans’ option to not discuss Trump’s latest grievances highlights the continued tension within the party over what quantity attention the previous president should be giving him, especially as he continues to falsely state that the 2020 election was stolen.

While many Republican senators condemned Trump within the immediate aftermath of the Three Kings’ Day attack — when pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol — he still wields significant influence over the party, particularly within the GOP primaries.

“In light of the general bias and dishonesty of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Democrats, two failed Republicans, and so the Fake medium, I’m canceling the January 6th conference at Mar-A-Lago on Thursday, and instead will discuss many of those important topics at my rally on Saturday, January 15th, in Arizona,” Trump wrote.

Federal and state election officials, Trump’s own attorney general and various judges — including some he appointed — have all said repeatedly that the election was fair which there isn’t any credible evidence of great fraud.

“I don’t think that’s an honest idea,” Senator Shelley Moore Capito (RW . Va . ) said when asked about the conference earlier on Tuesday. “I guess it depends on what he says. But early assumptions are that it would be an aggressive statement.

I just don’t think it’s a good idea.” The event would be Trump’s second press conference since leaving office. While he has been banned from Twitter and other social media outlets, he has appeared regularly on conservative news outlets and held numerous rallies and other events.
