'Do you miss me yet?' Trump asked the roaring crowd as he took the stage more than one hour later than scheduled.
The former president repeated his claims of voter fraud at several points during his 90-minute remarks on Sunday, claiming the Supreme Court should be 'ashamed' for refusing to overturn the results in his favor.
'With your help we will take back the House, we will win the Senate, and then a Republican president will make a triumphant return to the White House. And I wonder who that will be,' Trump sarcastically said toward the end of his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida on Sunday.
'Who, who, who will that be? I wonder,' he continued in the charade, smirking toward the crowd of some of his most staunch supporters.
Trump assured those gathered for the final day of CPAC: 'We're not starting new parties. We have the Republican Party.'
'Wouldn't that be brilliant?' he quipped. 'Let's start a new party, let's divide our vote, so you can never win. No we're not interested in that.'
Trump's re-commitment to the GOP comes after rumors emerged last month that he was considering creating his own political party and breaking with Republicans – especially those who rebuked him.
A White House spokesperson wasn't buying Trump's push for unity.
'The only thing that seems to be able to unite the Republican Party is their opposition to giving Americans $1,400 checks, to getting schools the money they need to reopen safely, to keeping cops, firefighters, and teachers on the job, and to speeding up vaccinations,' Michael Gwin told DailyMail.com following Trump's comeback remarks.
'While the GOP casts about for a path forward, President Biden is going to remain laser-focused on crushing the virus, re-opening schools, and getting Americans back to work,' he continued.
TRUMP CONTINUES TO PUSH VOTER FRAUD CLAIMS
The former president used his stage time – exactly 90 minutes – to push his repeated claims of voter fraud.
'Actually as you know, they just lost the White House, but it's one of those things,' he said of Democrats, continuing on with his claim that Joe Biden did not legitimately win the 2020 presidential election.
'But who knows, who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time,' he said, previewing a potential 2024 run to take back the White House – and at the same time suggesting he already beat Biden in 2020.
Trump said the Supreme Court is partly to blame for the election results not being overturned in his favor.
