Despite running an hour late for his CPAC keynote speech, former President Trump told a packed house in Orlando, “I may decide to run again and beat them (Democrats) for a third time” and we certainly will not call for the formation of a third party.
“I will not start a new party, that’s fake news.” Trump called that a losing prospect. He also declared that “America must come first” or “Trumpism.” Trump claimed that in one short month we went from “America first to America last.”
Trump promised to “keep winning” insinuating that he didn’t lose in the 2020 general election as the crowd chanted, “you won.”
Trump also called the first month of the Biden administration the worst for any U.S. President saying he destroyed jobs on his first day in office.
Trump attacked Biden for opening the borders and not opening schools.
The former president also praised Operation Warp Speed for the swift production of several coronavirus vaccines. He then reminded President Biden, who apparently forgot, that he already received a COVID vaccine thanks to the hard work of the Trump administration.
Trump also predicted skyrocketing gasoline prices under President Biden who cancelled the Keystone XL Pipeline. Trump said Biden is dismantling America’s newly achieved energy independence, “We are quickly moving from energy dominance to disaster.”
He also said we must protect the integrity of women’s sports.
But, the most stinging portion of his speech centered on what Trump called the “rigged 2020 election.” He called on Republicans to restore election integrity by passing laws that prevent states from changing election rules without legislative approval. “That’s illegal.”

He called for only one Election Day, signature verification ad voter ID. Trump excoriated the US Supreme Court for “failing to have the courage to take up the issue of election integrity.” He suggested Americans read the Time Magazine article that admitted what really happened during the 2020 election.
