Key points of former President Donald Trump’s speech at CPAC 2021
In his first speech since leaving the White House, former President Donald Trump declared his America—the first campaign to be far from done, attacked the Biden administration, set the course for the future of the Republican Party, and indicated that he would run for president again in 2024.
Donald Trump predicted that Biden’s immigration agenda alone would be enough for the Democrats to lose the White House in 2024. He then hinted at a future bid for the presidency.
“Who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time,” Trump said, prompting a loud ovation from the audience.
“Democrats should suffer withering losses in the midterms and to lose the White House decisively four years from now… I may decide to beat them for a third time,” Trump said, asserting that “our movement of hard-working American patriots is just getting started and in the end, we will win.”
“I’m going to continue to fight right by your side,” he said, adding that he won’t create a “brand new party,” adding: “I am not starting a new party.” (More detail)
Trump to reaffirm not want a third political party in CPAC speech
President Donald Trump will reaffirm that he does not want a third political party during his first speech after leaving office, according to former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
Lewandowski met with Trump for several hours on Thursday and went over the notes for the highly anticipated speech the president is scheduled to deliver at the CPAC 2021 in Orlando on Sunday.
“He’s going to reaffirm that he does not want to have a third party, that he is going to be part of—and the head of—the Republican Party,” Lewandowski said.
“He’s going to talk about what he believes Biden is going to do to this country over the next four years. We’ve already seen a military strike in Syria in the first 30 days of this administration. We’ve seen getting away from an America First agenda, to embrace China, to allow once again, our companies to be subjected to the will of other countries,” Lewandowski said.
“If we learned anything in the pandemic, we learned that we must have production of the important assets here in this country and not be reliant on China and other places. That’s what Donald Trump did. That’s what Joe Biden is going to go back away from.”
Donald Trump endorses former aide Max Miller against GOP Rep. Anthony Gonzalez
Former President Donald Trump on Friday endorsed his former aide, Max Miller, in his primary challenge of incumbent Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio), who voted to impeach the former president.
“Max Miller is a wonderful person who did a great job at the White House and will be a fantastic Congressman. He is a Marine Veteran, a son of Ohio, and a true PATRIOT,” Trump said in a statement through his Save America PAC. “Current Rep. Anthony Gonzalez should not be representing the people of the 16th district because he does not represent their interest or their heart. Max Miller has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
Miller previously served on the White House staff as a senior adviser to Trump. He also previously served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve.
Miller responded to the endorsement on Twitter: “I am honored to be endorsed by President Donald J. Trump as I begin my campaign for Congress. I will never back down and will never betray my constituents. Join us. We will save America together.”
Donald Trump Jr. Says Trump Is ‘Still the Future of the Republican Party’
Donald Trump Jr. asserted that his father, former President Donald Trump, is still the future of the GOP ahead of his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this weekend.
“If you’re reading the room and you’re intelligent, you realize that Donald Trump is still the future of the Republican Party,” Trump Jr. said on Fox News. “Those people who are being displaced by illegals, those people who are being swept aside by the Democrat Party, who has just flagrantly ignored them for decades, Donald Trump is all over that,” he added.
Trump Jr. is scheduled to speak at CPAC on Friday, while the former president will give a speech on Sunday.
“The Republican Party isn’t going to be bound to those corporate interests anymore,” he argued in the Fox interview. “So I love that they are making that link and breaking it, because we need more of that and we need candidates and people who will go to bat, who will go to war and fight for the American working class and make sure we put them first.
Trump added that it’s unprecedented in history for it to be considered “controversial” for “leaders of a nation to put their people first.” He added: “Why is it now, and how do the Democrats get away with making America last as opposed to first?”
A number of opinion polls in recent weeks suggest that Trump is still viewed highly by Republican voters, with one survey showing that up to 70 percent of Republicans would consider joining a Trump-backed political party.
Mark Meadows: Trump ‘planning for the next administration’
Mark Meadows, former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, said that they are going to move forward with the “America First” agenda and that he is “planning for the next administration.”
Meadows spoke to Fox’s “Hannity” on Thursday night on the subject of Trump’s re-appearance on the national stage this weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
“Well you’re going to see a speech on Sunday that talks about not only the beginning, but what the future may look like, and I’m excited about it,” said the former White House Chief of Staff.
“What we will see on Sunday is we will see the start of planning for the next administration. And I can tell you, the people that are at the top of that list, all of them have Trump as their last name.
Ted Cruz in CPAC speech says Trump is not going anywhere
Sen. Ted Cruz says the GOP is the party of the working class and vows that former President Trump will remain a power player in the Republican Party.
“The Republican Party is not the party just of the country clubs. The Republican Party is the party of steelworkers and construction workers and pipeline workers and taxi cab drivers and cops and firefighters, and waiters and waitresses and the men and women with callouses on their hands who are working for this country. That is our party and these deplorables are here to stay,” Cruz said to loud cheers.
“Let me tell you this right now: Donald J. Trump isn’t going’ anywhere,” Cruz said to a standing ovation.

Romney says Trump would win GOP nomination ‘in a landslide’ if he runs in 2024
Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said in an interview Tuesday that if former President Trump were to run again in 2024 he would likely win the Republican nomination.
