“The Republican Party is united.”
Former President Donald Trump once again energized his Conservative base when he came back into the political spotlight as the final speaker during the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. After series of speeches from Republican figures, the final night was given to the twice-impeached president to tighten his grip to the Republican party.
Before Trump’s speech, the CPAC host announced the results of CPAC straw poll. It shows that 95 percent of their event’s attendees prefer that their party continues the policies of the Trump Administration. The former president once again lead the straw poll for 2024 presidential primary preference with 55 percent of the votes.
On Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando, Florida, Trump walked on stage and started with his speech to spark a conversation about the future of the GOP. He disputed rumors that he would form a third party to challenge the Republican party by claiming it is only “fake news”. However, he called out fellow Republican members who voted to convict him during the impeachment trial and wanted to “get rid of all of them”. Trump also hinted a potential run next presidential election when he told the crowd, “Who knows, I may even decide to beat them (Democrats) for a third time.”
The battle for the electoral win continues a month after the inauguration as Trump proceeds to spread lies regarding the election by targeting mail-in ballots, the SC electoral ruling, and others.
Trump criticized his rival and successor, President Biden on immigration, China, school reopening, Iran nuclear deal, wars and many others. He believed that their country went from “America First” to “America Last” after he left office because of the alleged bad governance of the new administration.
Crowd still cheers for Donald Trump even after his historic defeat and impeachment for inciting a riot, they are even supporting his claims of victory as they chant, “You won, you won” to the former president.
