Donald Trump took to the CPAC stage on Sunday in Dallas to speak on a number of topics including attacks on the Radical Left, Joe Biden, former members of his administrations, and hot-button issues like critical race theory.
CPAC attendees greeted Trump with chants of “USA” as he took his place on the stage. He began the speech by praising conference-goers, thanking them for their undying support of his America First policies.
“People in this room have been the fiercest supporters of the greatest political movement in our country’s history.”
“With the help of everyone here today, we will defeat the radical left, the socialists, Marxists and the critical race theorists,” Trump began.

Trump celebrated his immigration policies he established immediately upon assuming office, while bashing the horrifying turn of events since Biden took the White House.
“The Biden administration has turned the border into the single greatest disaster in American history.”
Despite leaving the White House in January, his speech in Texas shows that Trump is clearly still surging in Republican Party politics. Since speaking in Orlando at the previous CPAC event, the Former President has made numerous speeches and a couple of rallies, which has solidified his popularity with the public.
In Orlando, some Republicans had already begun distancing themselves from Trump after the Jan. 6 debacle, but his speech this weekend proves that Donald Trump is still the taste maker and hero of the Republican Party.
Republican leaders, like Rep. Kevin McCarthy, have worked to ease tensions in the party, getting Trump on board to assist House Republicans leading up to the 2022 midterms. Leading Anti-Trump RINO Rep. Liz Cheney was recently stripped of her role as chairwoman over her constant bashing of the Former President.

Trump remained steadfast in his estimation of the 2020 presidential election, saying, “This was an election where the person who counts the vote was far more important than the candidate.” The crowed erupted as he continued his fighting words against the 2020 results. Following the evidence, it’s clear to most that evidence of widespread voter fraud helped Joe Biden inch out many victories in battleground states that he ordinarily would not have won.
Big Tech was also a major topic in his speech. The crowed went wild as the Former President brought up the class-action lawsuit he recently announced against the social media giants.
“The radical left and big tech’s attack on free speech is unlawful , it’s unconstitutional and it is completely unamerican.”
“To protect the Constitutional rights and liberties of every citizen this week I filed a major class action. A lot of people are joining,” Trump said to a standing ovation.
Trump also aired familiar grievances, speaking out against the investigation into alleged collusion between his 2016 campaign and Russia and the battle over Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Bill Barr become the target of his grievances:
“Bill Bar didn’t hold the corrupt officials who spied on our campaign… not the authors of the phony dossier… not the women who slandered and lied and defamed Brett Kavanaugh… not any of the numerous criminal referrals for lying to Congress over and over again, not any of the illegal leakers.”
“And by the way, where’s Durham, what happened?” Trump said
The Former President ventured back to the Supreme Court, offering an explanation why the conservative justices are suddenly acting, well..conservative.
“We’re getting some unexpected rulings because the nine justices do not want to be packed. And the Democrats are in a position to pack the court and they don’t want to be packed,” Trump said.
In Dallas, he did not spend as much time bashing RINOs or teasing a potential presidential run – although he has said earlier that his mind is already made up on if he will run or not.
