Amidst growing concerns about President Biden’s cognitive abilities and frequent missteps, former President Trump surprised many by speaking for over two hours, exceeding his scheduled one-hour time slot at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Despite being 76 years old, Trump demonstrated his mental acuity and ability to captivate an audience, delivering a powerful and unscripted speech that energized his supporters.


Former President Donald Trump boldly declared at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that he won’t be defeated by the establishment or “Republicans In Name Only” (RINOs.)

Trump showcased his extensive experience in Washington and pledged to hold accountable those who call themselves Republicans but fail to act in the best interest of the people. He firmly believes in putting America first and is committed to bringing back common-sense policies that benefit hard-working Americans. Trump’s message of putting the country before politics is resonating with Americans who are tired of the same old establishment politics.

Trump criticized the RINOs of the Republican Party, describing them by saying:

“We had a Republican Party that was ruled by freaks, neocons, globalists, open border zealots, and fools, but we are never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush”. 

Former President Donald Trump continues to be a vocal advocate for change in the political establishment, and his recent speech at CPAC shows he has not lost his touch. Trump focused on his family-first agenda and a potential run for the White House in 2024, emphasizing the need to initiate a baby boom similar to post-World War II to address the declining birth rate and bolster the US economy.

Unlike traditional Republican strategies, Trump proposes using tax dollars towards crucial goals, such as a “baby bonus” to increase parental funds, in line with other countries. This approach may not be favored by some moderate Republicans who prefer to allocate funds towards endless wars, but it is likely to resonate with many Americans who prioritize family values.

Trump also took a firm stance on foreign policy, emphasizing his desire to avoid US intervention in wars and claiming that he could easily prevent World War III. He criticized Republicans who support changes to social security and medicare, reaffirming his commitment to his family-first agenda.

Trump also addressed the ongoing subpoenas and investigations against him, including a civil lawsuit from the New York Attorney General and an investigation in Georgia. He labeled the women leading these efforts as “racist” and accused them of prioritizing trivial political wins over the welfare of minority children who are frequently hurt or killed in Democrat-run cities.

On the topic of the 2020 presidential election, Trump continued to allege that it was stolen from him due to election fraud, with mail-in ballots due to COVID-19 being a major factor. He, along with Mike Lindell and others, are looking to crack down on this issue when back in power, and establish election fraud bureaus to keep track of situations of manipulations in elections, which will aid in holding people accountable.

Trump’s two-hour speech was unscripted and featured his trademark humor, including an amusing portrayal of Joe Biden that elicited laughter from the entire audience. As always, Trump remains a controversial figure, but his commitment to his family-first agenda and desire to bring down establishment politics continue to resonate with many Americans.

Sporting buttons with Trump’s face, red hats, and an eagerness to see the man the conference now orbits around completely, the MAGA movement made a strong showing at CPAC. Even Fox News, which had been keeping Trump at arm’s length in recent months, aired some of his speech live on television after complaints from the CPAC main stage about a lack of Trump coverage the day before.

The former president’s speech, his first major public appearance in months, demonstrated his continued relevance within the Republican Party and his hold over its conservative base. Trump’s message was crystal clear: he has returned and plans to stay.
