Former President Trump attended CPAC over the weekend, where he delivered a two-hour-long speech and set the focus of his still-unofficial 2024 campaign.
Progressive indoctrination in public education: “As we take power out of Washington, we also need to take power back from the left-wing lunatics who are indoctrinating our youth. We have to finally and completely smash the radical left’s corrupt education establishment. The current system is sick… You can’t teach the Bible, but you can teach children that America is evil and that men are able to get pregnant.”
Fixing out-of-control crime in progressive cities: "The streets of our Democrat-run cities are drenched with the blood of innocent victims: gun battles rage between blood-thirsty street gangs, bullets tear into crowds at random, killing wonderful, beautiful little children that never even had a chance.”
Border security: “You know we fight and spend billions and billions and even trillions of dollars defending the borders of countries that are 7,000 miles away, but they don’t want to spend any money to defend our border. Makes no sense.”
The war against the deep state: “Another key priority for the next Congress and the next president will be to drain the swamp once and for all. To remove rogue bureaucrats and root out the deep state. Congress should pass groundbreaking reform, empowering the president to ensure that any federal employee who is corrupt, incompetent, or unnecessary for the job can be told, ‘You’re fired.’”
Trump’s big picture: “Our biggest threat remains the sick, sinister, and evil people from within our own country. Never forget everything this corrupt establishment is doing to me is all about preserving their power and control over the American people. But no matter how big or powerful the corrupt radicals we are fighting against may be, no matter how menacing they appear, we must never forget that this nation does not belong to them. This nation belongs to you.”
