He was greeted by “Stati Uniti d'America” chants as he walked on stage, and lauded the CPAC attendees as strong supporters of his movement.
“With the help of everyone here today, we will defeat the radical left, the socialists, Marxists and the critical race theorists,” Trump ha detto. “We will secure our borders, we will stop left wing cancel culture, we will restore free speech and free elections and we will make America great again.”
Trump added that “the people in this room have been some of the staunchest and fiercest supporters” di “the greatest political movement in the history of our country.”
Trump Sunday also touted the actions he took as president, especially stringent immigration policies, and slammed President Biden for his handling of the border.
“We deported criminal aliens by the thousands … and we built almost 500 miles of the border wall,” Trump ha detto. “Now the Biden administration has turned the border into the single greatest disaster in American history.”
The former president spoke at the Orlando CPAC event in February and used his speech to attack President Joe Biden, Republicans who have not been loyal to him and to hint at a potential 2024 corsa presidenziale.
The Dallas CPAC event continues Trump’s continued resurgance into Republican politics after leaving the White House in January. Since the Orlando event Trump has made several major public speeches, including a recent one in Ohio supporting his former aide Max Miller in his campaign to unseat Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio.
Also since the February event, the GOP has moved closer and closer to Trump after some in the party distanced themselves from him in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by a mob of his supporters.
Il leader della minoranza della Camera Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has worked to smooth over tensions within the party and get Trump on board to help House Republicans in 2022. And the House GOP Conference jettisoned Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., as their chairwoman over her denunciations of Trump’s false claims that the presidential election was stolen.
Il presidente dell'Unione Conservatrice americana Matt Schlapp, who runs the CPAC events, said that be believes the party is moving in the right direction by backing Trump.
“We’re about to have the country slip into European socialism and some Republicans just want to fight about 1/6, or Donald Trump, or Twitter, and I have no time for any of that,” Schlapp told Fox News.
“I can assure you it’s going to be interesting. I can assure you people will be outraged,” Donald Trump Jr., told Fox News of his father’s speech.
Trump spoke shortly after the release of the CPAC straw poll, which he won with 70% del voto.
