‘We’re tougher than they are’: Trump promises return to ‘victory’ for the GOP in fiery CPAC speech

Former President Donald Trump brought the crowd to its feet with a defiant speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this weekend in his first public appearance since leaving office.

In wide-ranging remarks, Trump marked his return to the political arena with a bold declaration that his “America First” movement is just getting started.

Trump’s speech followed weeks of relative silence from the voluble ex-president, who kept quiet as Joe Biden assumed office and as Democrats — and Republicans like Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) — expressed a dear wish to see him fall off the face of the earth in disgrace.

“From America First to America Last”

But Trump left little doubt in Orlando on Sunday that he sees himself as the GOP’s leader, and the enthusiastic reception suggested that he is correct; the crowd broke into chants of “You won!” and “We love you!” as he spoke, the New York Post reports.

According to a transcript from Rev, an unapologetic Trump asserted Sunday that he was the rightful winner of the “rigged” 2020 election and even threatened to “beat them for a third time,” and he called on the GOP to unite behind “America First” as the only way forward for the party, and indeed for America.

He also painted a bleak picture of what lies ahead if Republicans fail in an existential “struggle” for America’s destiny, pointing to Biden’s first weeks — the “most disastrous first month of any president in modern history” — as a preview of decline.

“Already the Biden administration has proven that they are anti-jobs, anti-family, anti-borders, anti-energy, anti-women, and anti-science,” Trump said, according to the transcript. “In just one short month, we have gone from America First to America Last.”

Trump to GOP: Stop “grandstanding”

Trump also said Republicans need to learn to fight like Democrats, who always “stick together.” The GOP needs leaders with “spines of steel” who will fight for fair elections and free speech, and stand up against “left-wing tyranny” imposed by Big Tech and cancel culture, the president asserted.

With America facing such dire threats to liberty, Republicans cannot win with “grandstanders” and “RINOs” in charge who are more concerned with fighting Trump and his supporters than with the left, Trump said — naming and shaming Republicans who voted for his impeachment, led by “warmonger” Cheney.

“We cannot have leaders who show more passion for condemning their fellow Americans than they have ever shown for standing up to Democrats, the media, and the radicals who want to turn America into a socialist country,” Trump declared.

As grave as America’s situation may be, Trump predicted with confidence that liberty will prevail if conservatives stand strong and fight.

“The path ahead will not be easy, but we will win,” he said, according to the transcript. “We’re tougher than they are. We’re stronger than they are. Together, in the coming years, we will carry forward the torch of American Liberty. We will lead the conservative movement and the Republican Party back to a totally conclusive victory.”

  1. The Democrats own all 3 branches of the government. Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito against the other 7 justices can’t win.

  3. Courts and politics stole this election. If elections cannot be fair – I am ready to do my part to make sure my party wins and continues to win. If the courts do not like the chaos they create that is too bad they should have done their jobs – COWARDS! VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN TO WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. What a shame that the major networks that watch TV these days were deprived of the message that President Trump delivered on Sunday. Regardless of what anyone thinks of this man he is a LEADER in every sense of the word. The American people can make up their own minds and they will. The more the networks try to surpress the message the more the Americans will hunger for it. These Americans are going to want to see what the rest of us see in this President and they are going to find out one way or the other because we have smart people in this country. It is just a matter of time. Mark my word.

  5. Republicans need to start by having Piglosi, Schumer, Biden and Harris impeached! They need to be ousted the sooner, the better!

  6. We need to mandate those voting machines out. Texas said no to them so we had no cheating. We should also have voter ID before voting, I had to show my drivers license to match signatures. All states should follow the same policies; not DO AS I SAY!

  7. -Patty is 200% those 3-4 are 100% responsible for this mess & destroying our beautiful USA and our society & life style, list goes on.

  8. Let Us all stand together support those who value what we believe in. We must be done peacefully and for all American. we must stop the democrat’s form winning We the people must stand up say enough.

  9. I watched on TV this man who was on the Supreme Court in Italy say that the votes were uploaded to the Dominion Machine and the man was changing Trump votes over to the Biden column. He saw this and commented on it and I heard it and wonder why no one else is speaking up about it. He said Trump was winning by a landslide. Tell me why the Supreme Court is not believing this fact. I saw it and heard it with my eyes and ears so I know it is true. What in God’s name is going on in this country where this can happen and no one is saying anything about it. Why is the Supreme Court seeming to be Mum about this? Lots of corruption going on against a person who has done an amazing job as President than anyone else I have ever seen.

    1. I agree with you Anna the Truth has to come out tell this to everyone you know!!!! And those you don’t know

  10. I think the focus should be on money .The top is probably paid off . executive ,judicial, and legislative branch leaders are all in the pocket of China and the European union . Soros is a puppet of the others . And when he is no longer useful .They will lose him .

  11. Agree with Charles on all counts- we should stage a heroic sweep of the criminals including Supreme Court puppets and the whole swamp including the FBI, DOJ,CIA and crooked democratic and republican representatives. Clean House!!
