Trump says the GOP will avoid 'stupid 'foreign wars

 March 7, 2023

Many regard former President Donald Trump as the Republican Party's presumptive 2024 nominee, with an Emerson poll conducted last month putting him 30 points ahead of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Trump laid out his vision for the GOP while speaking to attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and it includes avoiding "stupid" foreign wars.

Trump says GOP "was ruled by freaks, neocons, open border zealots and fools"

"We had a Republican Party that was ruled by freaks, neocons, open border zealots and fools," Trump declared, adding, "We're never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush."

Breitbart noted how Trump next contrasted the support for conflict shown by previous Republicans with their failure to support veterans at home.

"We are never going back to a party that wants to give unlimited money to fight foreign wars – that are endless wars, that are stupid wars – but at the same time demands that we cut veterans' benefits and retirement benefits at home," he declared.

Former president slams "entrenched political dynasties in both parties"

"Our soldiers will no longer live on the streets of your cities," the former president insisted. "We have cities where our great soldiers are living on concrete. They’re living on asphalt. We will take care of our soldiers."

At another point, Trump condemned the "entrenched political dynasties in both parties" while accusing politicians like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of being soft on China.

What's more, the former president also pledged that he would bring "justice" and "retribution" on behalf of those "who have been wronged and betrayed."

Poll shows Trump four points ahead of Biden

"In 2016, I declared, 'I am your voice.' Today I add: I am your warrior, I am your justice, and for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution!" he declared.

The aforementioned Emerson survey found that in a head-to-head match-up, Trump would beat President Joe Biden by a four-point margin.

Meanwhile, a recent Yahoo News/YouGov poll reported that 68% of voters think Biden is too old to seek another term.
