    A former aide to President Donald Trump was detained in Brazil under the suspicion that he was participating in anti-democratic acts. Jason Miller, who became the CEO of the social media platform GETTR after the Trump presidency ended, was detained while trying to board a plane at the Brasilia International Airport after leaving the Conservative Political Action Conference in Brazil. Alexandre de Moraes, a justice of the Supreme Federal Court, sent out the detainment order for Miller under investigation 4874, which "investigates the organization of anti-democratic acts" in Brazil, according to Disclose.tv . WOMAN WHO MISSPELLED 'MODERNA' ON ALLEGEDLY FAKE VACCINATION CARD ARRESTED AT AIRPORT GETTR confirmed the incident on Tuesday, saying the group was questioned at the airport before being released. "We were not accused of any wrongdoing, and told only that they 'wanted to talk,'" read Miller's statement. "We informed them that we had nothing to say and were eventually released to fly back to the United States. Our goal of sharing free speech around the world continues!" Matt Schlapp, the chairman...

Here's all you need to know... 1Trump delivered the headline speechCredit: Zuma Press What did Donald Trump say in his CPAC speech?  During his CPAC speech, former President Donald Trump accused Facebook of "election meddling," slammed big tech, and repeated his unsubstantiated claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him. He also blasted Democrats and tech giants throughout his speech, which lasted well over an hour. “The radical left’s attack on free speech is unlawful, unconstitutional, and unamerican,” he said at one point. He criticized tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, all of which he announced he is suing earlier this week. “They want to take everybody down. They go too far. They’re like a spoiled child," Trump said. Trump slammed the Biden administration for its handling of the immigration crisis. He claimed that "illegal immigrants are being resettled around our cities and towns at the taxpayer's expense." "When I was president, illegal alien criminals knew that if they crossed our...
    Donald Trump easily won the 2024 GOP presidential nomination poll with 70 percent of the votes cast in the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) gathering this weekend in Texas. That's up from the 55 percent he won in the hypothetical 2024 Republican primary matchup straw poll at CPAC Orlando in late February, Fox News reported.  The runner up was Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who received 21 percent of the anonymous votes.  None of the other 19 potential 2024 Republican White House contenders topped received more than one percent.  Donald Trump giving the keynote address during this weekend CPAC in Dallas During his speech, Trump he attacked President Joe Biden, Big Tech, critical race theory and the media while continuing to push the narrative of a stolen election Florida Gov.

                        Former President Trump took the stage to a standing ovation and a rowdy crowd, while headlining the large gathering of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas on Sunday. In his speech that lasted approximately 90 minutes, the former commander-in-chief highlighted a variety of key areas that Republicans across the country are focused on, including the 2022 midterms, the Biden administration’s policies, and his lawsuit against Big Tech platforms. “With the help of everyone here today, we will defeat the radical left, the socialists, Marxists and the critical race theorists. We will secure our borders, we will stop left wing cancel culture, we will restore free speech and free elections and we will make America great again,” Trump said of the prospects of the 2022 midterms. Upon the declaration, the crowd jumped to their feet for a sustained ovation. Trump then took aim at the Biden administration for their approach to immigration policies. “The Biden administration is turning the border into the single biggest disaster in American...
                       
    During Donald Trump‘s CPAC speech on Sunday, Fox News added a disclaimer that “voting system companies have denied the various allegations made by President Trump and his counsel regarding the 2020 election.” The chyron appeared after Trump started talking about how many votes he received. Trump claimed the “witch hunts” started when he announced his presidential campaign because he “put America first, all because of MAGA.” “And now, it’s also because I got more votes — 75 million — than anybody in the history of the presidency, and far more than Clinton, far more than Obama, and a record 12 million more than 2016,” he said. “Think of it, in the history usually they go down a little bit second term and they win, but they go down a little bit.” He continued: “I was told by a great pollster, really somebody great, John McLaughlin, ‘Sir, you got 63 million votes if you get it up to 64 or 65, nobody can beat you. Can’t lose.’ Thank you, John, very much. I got it to 75 and I lost, in...
    Former President Donald Trump had a shocking moment of honesty in the middle of his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday, telling the audience that he was waiting for the straw poll results (a regular part of the CPAC events for years), and if the poll was bad for him, he would call it “fake,” but if it was good, then he’d say it was “the most accurate poll, perhaps ever.” Trump’s speech to a supportive crowd in Dallas, Texas lasted about an hour and a half, and the regular cheers and applause seemed to indicate that he was in very friendly territory. In the 2020 election, Trump won Texas 52.06% to President Joe Biden’s 46.48%. “By the way, you have a poll coming out,” Trump said about halfway through his remarks. “I want to know what it is. You know they do that straw poll, right?” “Now, if it’s bad, I just say it’s fake,” Trump continued, as the crowd laughed. “If it’s good, I say that’s the most accurate poll, perhaps ever.” Trump commented, apparently to CPAC chairman Matt Schlapp,...
    Donald Trump took stage at a Conservative Political Action Conference gathering on Sunday where he reminded Republicans 'we are the majority' in the U.S. 'Never forget that the radical left is not the Majority in this country—we are the Majority, and it's not even close,' the former president told a friendly crowd in Dallas, Texas. 'Like socialist and communist movements throughout history, today's leftists do not believe in freedom, they do not believe in fairness, and they do not believe in democracy,' Trump said. 'They believe in Marxist morality—anything is justified as long as it hurts their political opponents and advances the radical agenda of their party.' Trump took aim at 'Biden's border crisis', corruption in Big Tech, rising crime, Democrats' proposed tax increases and the too-swift withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. Former President Donald Trump spoke to a friendly crowd at a Conservative Political Action Conference gathering in Dallas, Texas on Sunday afternoon 'Never forget that the radical left is not the Majority in this country—we are the Majority, and it's not even close,' Trump said as...
    Former President Trump's senior advisor Stephen Miller said he's focusing on the future of America in his CPAC speech from Fort Worth, Texas. Miller joined "Fox & Friends Weekend" ahead of his speech, which covers the change of conservatism throughout U.S. history. STEPHEN MILLER: I think that it begins with understanding what a nation is, right? A nation is a community of people who share common dreams, common aspirations and common goals.  And so it begins with a conservatism rooted in the idea that we are, in fact, a nation. We're not just a collection of thoughts. We're flesh and blood people. We have hopes and we have dreams, and we want to live those hopes and dreams in America that's wedded with this exceptional history of adventurism, of exploration, of reaching new heights, new frontiers, reaching into the stars.  So we have this destiny in America that's inextricably bound up in our history as a nation of pioneers and settlers and explorers pushing ever further towards the next horizon. That's what American greatness is all about. … We have...
    Donald Trump Jr. previewed his father's CPAC speech by claiming 'you never know' what you'll get with Donald Trump. 'I can assure you it's going to be interesting. I can assure you people will be outraged,' the eldest Trump son told Fox News at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday before taking stage for his own speech. Fox asked Don Jr. if he could tease Trump's speech, to which he said: 'With my father, you never know, right?' It is known, however, that the ex-president does not plan to use his platform at the largest and most influential conservative gathering to announce a reelection bid for 2024.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at Lauren Boebert on Saturday as she accused Republicans of wanting to 'strip' Americans' of their unemployment benefits and get rid of 'public safety nets.' The progressive representative's comments came in response to a video of Congresswoman Boebert at CPAC on Saturday saying: 'We're here to tell government, 'We don't want your benefits. We don't want your welfare. Don't come knocking on my door with your Fauci Ouchi.'' 'You leave us the hell alone,' Boebert, the mother of four who represents Colorado's 4th district, told a cheering crowd in Dallas, Texas. AOC responded with: 'Tell 'em loud and proud girl! GOP will strip your unemployment protections and dismantle any semblance of a public safety net we have left!

    DALLAS – Once again, the biggest draw will go last. Just as he did at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando in February, former President Donald Trump will close this weekend's CPAC gathering in Texas by delivering the event's headliner speech. The American Conservative Union, which organizes the largest and most influential annual gathering of conservative activists and leaders, says that the former president will be the last major speaker at the three-day CPAC gathering in Dallas.

    Donald Trump Jr. took aim at several high-profile targets during a fiery speech at CPAC in Dallas. Trump Jr. began his unscripted remarks on Friday by touting how his father, former President Donald Trump, was "right" about "everything," highlighting the coronavirus lab-leak theory that was widely dismissed by Democrats and members of the media last year.  "At what point in time in these morons' minds, I don't know, the Wuhan lab-leak theory not the most plausible argument in the year 2020?" Trump Jr. asked.  Trump Jr. mocked the lab-leak deniers, sparking laugher in the audience. DONALD TRUMP JR. SAYS HE'LL BE ‘VERY INVOLVED’ ON 2022 CAMPAIGN TRAIL "Don't laugh- you're not canceled. Congratulations," Trump Jr. quipped. "By laughing, you would have been thrown off every social media platform, you would have been thrown out of a job in science because, you know, science no longer follows the rules of physics, right? They don't follow math, they follow the narrative dictated by CNN because that is able to manipulate the rules of physics." Trump Jr. lamented that "the world is going...

    The Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN), a conservative news broadcaster, received a two-week suspension from YouTube because it covered President Donald Trump’s speech at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). The video nearly accumulated 4 million views before being censored by the Google-owned platform. The official Twitter account of RSBN reported the news. “RSBN has been suspended from YouTube for two weeks because of the Trump #CPAC2021 speech, which violated their guidelines on election misinformation.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says he wasn't tuned into former President Donald Trump's first public remarks since leaving the White House. The Kentucky Republican stressed he wants to look forward after a whirlwind couple weeks in which he voted against convicting Trump in his second impeachment trial, said Trump was "practically and morally responsible" for the Capitol riot in a subsequent speech, and then insisted he would "absolutely" support Trump if he becomes the 2024 Republican presidential nominee. "I didn't watch it," McConnell said of Trump's Conservative Political Action Conference speech over the weekend during which the 45th president repeatedly claimed he won the 2020 election and took aim at GOP House and Senate members who supported his second impeachment. Asked about his pledge to support Trump if he became the 2024 GOP nominee, McConnell said the Republican Party is "looking forward," not "backward." “I think the actions of the new Democratic administration are unifying the Republican Party," he said Wednesday on Fox News. "We’ve had some eternal back-and-forth that’s been widely covered, but nothing has unified the Republican...
    By Brian Stetler | CNN The Republican base’s commitment to former president Donald Trump showed up like a fist in the air in Sunday’s television ratings. The ratings for Fox News Channel, which have been relatively weak since Trump lost the election last November, spiked Sunday afternoon when he was scheduled to address the CPAC convention in Orlando, Florida. Fox averaged 5.74 million viewers during the speech, which it showed without any commercial interruption. At least a million others watched the speech on Newsmax, one of Fox’s lower-rated rivals. The former president is likely to celebrate Sunday’s ratings report, since it shows that his fan base still comes out in droves to watch him. Several other channels, including One America News and C-SPAN, also took Trump’s speech live, but those channels are not rated by Nielsen. Fox’s Sunday afternoon lineup — a repeated target of Trump’s ire while he was still in office — had averaged 700,000 to 900,000 viewers the previous week. But this Sunday, boosted by days of right-wing media hype about Trump’s star turn at CPAC, Fox...

    Brexit leader Nigel Farage said that former President Donald Trump’s speech at CPAC cemented his position as the leader of the Republican Party, hailing the return of a true “opposition” in the United States. Mr Farage said that following Trump’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday, it is clear that “Trump’s grip on the Republican Party seems to be as strong as ever”. “I will be the first to acknowledge that we are talking about a cult of personality here, but that is because, in 2021, it is Donald Trump’s Republican Party,” Farage wrote for Newsweek, predicting that Trump will further solidify his power within the party through winning battles against so-called RINOs in Washington DC. Mr Farage said the speech also secured Trump’s role as the true opposition leader in the United States, something which the Brexit leader said has been sorely missing from American politics. The U.S. has not had much in the way of “opposition leadership” for several years, Farage explained, adding that the lack of a credible opposition is “unhealthy in any democracy”. “Following Hillary Clinton’s...
    Former President Donald Trump bashed President Biden, railed against Big Tech companies, and hinted that he would run for reelection in 2024. For 90 minutes, he delivered the sort of speech his supporters hope can power him back to the White House. Just one question: Will he actually do it? “He was never going to use that platform to announce he was running,” said a former Trump adviser. “It’s the art of the tease.” Cocooned in the sunshine of Florida, splitting his time between his home and office at Mar-a-Lago and his nearby golf club, locals say he has cut a relaxed figure as he decompressed from his last, turbulent weeks in office. On Sunday evening, after delivering a wide-ranging speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando that was akin to any of his wild campaign rallies, he was back at his West Palm Beach golf club for “fish night.” Trump was spotted dining with his social media guru, Dan Scavino, and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows before leaving early to call into Fox...
    Former Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Monday that former President Donald Trump’s first major speech since leaving the White House was “a dud.” “I thought the speech was a dud myself,” Kasich said Monday on CNN’s “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer.” Kasich said Trump’s Sunday speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) made him think of a boxer with “no sting in the punch.” “You couldn’t knock anybody down or knock anybody out with it. And it was not impressive to me. And remember, there were like 1,400 people in a ballroom. I mean, if this is not the crowd that’s going to tear down the rafters, I don’t know where they are,” Kasich said. Kasich, a former governor of Ohio who ran for the Republican nomination for president in 2016, said he doesn’t believe Trump’s speech “inspired anybody.” “I’ve been saying for a couple of weeks … that I think he’s fading. I really do. And yesterday was just not impressive to me. I didn’t watch that much of it, but I watched enough of it to...
    Juan Williams said Monday that former President Donald Trump’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) was proof that he was “jealous” of President Joe Biden.

    Former President Donald Trump made his first major public appearance since leaving the White House at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), speaking for nearly two hours Sunday. “Do you miss me yet?” Trump asked in his opening lines. Throughout his speech, Trump shot down rumors that he’d be starting his own political party, slammed the Biden administration for their “far left” policies and criticized the Biden administrations new policies on immigration. WATCH:   Trump also repeated false claims that the 2020 election was “rigged,” telling the crowd that he really won. Trump said that while “somebody who came in second in New Hampshire, or first in Iowa, and that was the end, and they became famous for the rest of their lives, we won the election twice.” (RELATED: NYT Editorial Board Member Calls Trump’s CPAC Address ‘A Festival Of Toxic Masculinity’) Trump hinted at running in 2024, telling the crowd that he “may even decide to beat [Democrats] for a third time.” Check out more videos from the Daily Caller: California School Member Compares Reopening Schools To Slavery...
    New York : The former first lady rarely attended the former president’s rallies. Photo: Spencer Platt / . The ex-president Donald trump did not want to confirm that will compete for the presidential election in 2024, but he hinted at it in his speech at the conservative CPAC event in Florida. One of the highlights of his speech was when he mentioned his wife Melania, whom he referred to as “the future First Lady.” The reference was curious, because the Republican did it just when he criticized the president’s immigration policies Joe biden, whom he pointed out to allow the entry of “criminals” into the country. It should be remembered that Melania Trump is an immigrant and her parents obtained the “green card” for family reunion, one of the legal avenues most criticized by former President Trump.

    Former ambassador and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s latest comments regarding Donald Trump are raising eyebrows. A couple of weeks after pointed criticism of the then-president’s comments before the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol, Haley praised Trump in a tweet Sunday night, a couple of hours after the former president’s address at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), his first public appearance and speech since leaving the White House on Jan. 20. WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT NIKKI HALEY "Strong speech by President Trump about the winning policies of his administration and what the party needs to unite behind moving forward. The liberal media wants a GOP civil war. Not gonna happen," Haley tweeted. Haley, who was nominated by Trump and confirmed by Congress as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during the first two years of the former president’s administration, took aim at Trump in an interview last month, claiming he let down his supporters.

    Former President Trump returned to the political fray at CPAC on Sunday with a stem-winder of a speech that signaled, at least to me, three big things worth pointing out. It Is Still Trump’s Republican Party Never, at least in my lifetime, has a former president or a losing candidate remained in control of the Republican Party. Trump is both. He served a single term as president. He lost his 2020 reelection bid. Nevertheless, this is still his party to command. There is no competition. Why is this? One very simple reason: the people are still with him, and the people are still with him because he never betrayed us, never went soft, never fell for any fake media narratives. Also, some three-quarters of Republican voters believe the Democrats cheated in 2020, and not without cause. Trump also received more raw votes in 2020 than anyone in history other than His Fraudulency Joe Biden. Trump won millions more votes than even Barack Obama. Trump is very popular. His ideas are popular. His willingness to stand up to the fascist...
    The CEO of Goya Foods called Donald Trump 'the real, legitimate and still actual president of the United States' at CPAC in Florida on Sunday night. Robert Unanue, boss of the Hispanic food supplier, claimed that 'the majority' of Americans voted for the Republican candidate just hours before Trump took the stage in Orlando.  The 67-year-old suggested Trump had been overthrown by communists who had used the Covid-19 pandemic as a political weapon against the incumbent. Unanue told CPAC: 'It's just an honor to be here. But my biggest honor today is gonna be that - I think we're gonna be on the same stage - as, in my opinion, the real, the legitimate, and the still actual president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.'   Robert Unanue, CEO of Goya Foods, speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday Former President Donald Trump assured the crowd at CPAC on Sunday that he will not form his own political party as he appeared for his first public remarks since leaving office on January...
    Savannah Rychcik March 1, 2021 0 Comments Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, is responding to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) after she claimed he is “wrong a lot” during her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Host Margaret Brennan played a portion of Noem’s speech during Fauci’s Sunday appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation. “We never focused on the case numbers. Instead, we kept our eye on hospital capacity. Now, Dr. Fauci, he told me that on my worst day I’d have 10,000 patients in the hospital,” Noem said. She continued, “On my worst day, we had a little over 600. I don’t know if you agree with me, but Dr. Fauci is wrong a lot.” Brennan noted Noem received a standing ovation for her comments. She asked Fauci, “How much of an impediment is sentiment like that to the nation’s recovery?” He replied, “It’s unfortunate but it is not really helpful because sometimes you think things are going well and just take a look at the numbers, they don’t lie.” Watch...
    (CNN)Donald Trump delivered his first major post-presidential speech on Sunday, an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference laden with falsehoods and attacks on his fellow Republicans -- suggesting absolutely nothing has changed since he ceased being president on January 20.I went through the speech and pulled out the lines you need to see. They're below.1. "Do you miss me yet? Do you miss me?"At root, Trump wants to be loved. Forever. And away we go!2.

    “Hello CPAC. Do you miss me yet? Do you miss me? … There’s never been a journey so successful,” said presidential loser Donald Trump in his pitiful, mendacious, laughable big comeback appearance, not quite (but close) promising that he will try again for the presidency 2024 and clarifying (if there was any serious doubt) that if/when he does so, it will be as a Republican (and not, as was recently rumored, in a new party that he would create). As regular visitors to this site know, I have an extremely bad attitude about Trump, and did not miss him at all during the relatively few weeks he took from public view after fomenting a violent overthrow of U.S. democracy and beating, on a technicality combined with political cowardice, conviction in an impeachment trial, even though a significant and bipartisan majority of the U.S. Senate (but not the two-thirds majority necessary) voted to convict him. “In the end, we will win,” saith he, promising to avenge himself in some not-quite-specific way, against the “fake news media” and “this horrible cancel culture.”...
    Trump urges Republican party to purge 17 members who voted to impeach him and ‘get rid of them all’ In his CPAC speech, in Orlando on Sunday, Trump mentioned by name all seven senators and ten members of the House who voted to impeach him, with a special reference to Mitt Romney and "warmonger" Liz Cheney. 3During his speech Trump urged the Republican party to purge those who impeach himCredit: Alamy Live News He said: "Instead of attacking me and more importantly the voters of our movement, top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending their energy in opposing Biden, Pelosi, Schumer and the Democrats. "And the warmonger, the person who loves seeing our troops fighting, Liz Cheney.' "Her poll numbers have dropped faster than any human being I've ever seen,' he said.  "Hopefully they'll get rid of her with the next election. Get rid of 'em all." Trump also attacked Joe Biden saying he had had "the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history." "We all knew that the Biden adminstration was going to be...
    Former President Donald Trump has returned to the public stage and repeated the lie that the 2020 election was “stolen.” It appears that Fox News opinion programming is happy to go along with that lie, and not responsibly factcheck the baseless claim that fueled the deadly insurrection on the Capitol that occurred on January 6th. Fox & Friends opened Monday’s show delighted to see their old friend, former President Trump, who reemerged to the national stage Sunday afternoon with a rousing speech that closed CPAC. Trump hit many of his “greatest hits,” including repeated and baseless claims that he only lost the election due to widespread voter fraud, even though his campaign lawyers lost nearly every legal challenge. Election results — or the false claim about fraud — was a major section of Trump’s speech. Fox & Friends mostly ignored it and focused instead on how bad the Biden Administration has been in a month and a half. They also found time to praise Trump’s appearance (he looks like he lost weight!) and the “bounce in his step.” Pete Hegseth joined...
    The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) wrapped on Sunday following an anticipated speech from former President Trump. Here are five key moments all week at CPAC. Trump rips into Biden during CPAC speech Trump spoke at CPAC on Sunday, marking his first major speech since leaving office. He spoke to a raucous pro-Trump crowd at an event where his influence was felt throughout. Trump tore into President Biden on issues ranging from the brewing crisis at the border to foreign policy as well as the reopening of schools during the coronavirus pandemic.  "Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history," Trump said, calling the new administration "anti-jobs, anti-families, anti-border, anti-energy, anti-women and anti-science." He focused predominantly on the escalating border crisis, which he returned to frequently as he ripped into Biden’s rollbacks of a number of Trump-era policies – which has in turn seen a surge in migrants at the border. "It took the new administration only a few weeks to turn this unprecedented accomplishment into a self-inflicted humanitarian and national security disaster," he said. "In one short month, we have gone...
    ORLANDO, Florida — Former President Donald Trump is affirming his commitment to the Republican Party but yanking the welcome mat from prominent Republicans opposed to his leadership, deepening a dilemma as the party heads into 2022. In his return to the political spotlight with a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump calmed Republican fears that he would start a new party in a rebuke of GOP House and Senate members who supported his second impeachment. “I am not starting a new party,” he said during his CPAC speech on Sunday. TRUMP VOWS TO CPAC CROWD NOT TO START A NEW PARTY Nonetheless, the former president coupled that reassuring news for an anxious GOP with a warning to "Never Trump" incumbents that they may face serious primary challenges from Trump-backed candidates. “Now, more than ever, is the time for tough, strong and energetic Republican leaders who have spines of steel. We need strong leadership,” Trump said. After he listed some of his establishment foes by name, the former president added that he hopes voters will "get rid of...
    (CNN)Former President Donald Trump returned to the public stage on Sunday with a familiar kind of Trump speech -- a speech filled with debunked lies. Most notably, Trump's first post-presidency address, at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, included his usual lies about the 2020 election. He continued to falsely insist he was the legitimate winner and continued to falsely insist the election was "rigged." Trump repeated a bunch of other false claims we regularly heard from him as president, on subjects ranging from trade with China to his stance on the war in Iraq. He also offered up some new false claims about President Joe Biden's early days in office. We are still going through the transcript of Trump's remarks, but here is an initial breakdown of some of the things he said. 2020 election resultsRead MoreWho won the electionTrump repeated various versions of his usual lie that he won the 2020 election. He said that Democrats "just lost the White House," said that "it's not possible" that he lost, said "no" after asking the rhetorical question "did Biden...
    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) — a self-proclaimed “Florida Man” and one of the most vocal supporters of former President Donald Trump and the America First doctrine — ripped the political and foreign policy establishment in a rousing speech Friday evening at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando. Gaetz denounced corporate “wokeism,” noting that he was the first Republican to swear off donations from federal lobbyists and political action committees last year. “Turns out, I was ahead of the curve because the woke corporations turned around and canceled us. Many fortune 100 companies will not donate to pro-Trump Republicans. Some have even pulled their sponsorship of this conference. American business should be worried about business, not wokeism,” he said. He mocked Hasbro’s fleeting decision to rename “Mr. Potato Head” to just “Potato Head.” “I’m sorry, I think now he’s going by Mr. PotatoX,” he joked. “To me, the whole concept of the Mr. Potato Head was that you could move the parts around. I mean, Mr. Potato Head was America’s first transgender doll and even he got canceled.” He called...

    ORLANDO, Florida — Former President Donald Trump teased a 2024 White House bid and relitigated unfounded claims that the November election was stolen, initiating act two of his political career with a rousing speech to adoring supporters at the Conservative Political Action Conference that aimed to solidify his command of the Republican Party. The address lasted more than one hour, during which Trump twice suggested he was planning a third presidential campaign and several times declared he won reelection in 2020 only to watch the Democrats steal his victory and illegitimately install President Biden. The CPAC crowd of approximately 1,400 that packed a hotel ballroom for Trump’s first public speech since leaving the White House applauded those comments more than any other, alternately chanting “We love you” and “You won.” “Actually, as you know, they just lost the White House,” Trump said early in his remarks, referring to Biden and the Democrats. “But who knows, who knows; I may even decide to beat them for a third time.” Trump’s address was billed as statement of his unchallenged leadership of the...
    Photograph: Joe Raedle/Getty Images An embittered Donald Trump has used his first post-presidential speech to propagate the lie of a “rigged” election in 2020 and hint that he might try to beat Democrats “for a third time” in 2024. Grasping for continued relevance, Trump returned to his political comfort zone by fearmongering about immigrants and unleashing angry tirades against Joe Biden, his Republican critics and the media.

    Former President Donald Trump repeated false claims that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and that he really won during his Sunday speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Trump claimed that while “somebody who came in second in New Hampshire, or first in Iowa, and that was the end, and they became famous for the rest of their lives, we won the election twice.” Trump finished second in the 2016 Iowa Republican caucus to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and came in first in that year’s New Hampshire primary. WATCH: He further suggested that President Joe Biden’s failures to address the immigration crisis “should be reason enough for Democrats to suffer withering losses in the midterms and to lose the White House decisively four years from now. Actually, as you know, they just lost the White House. But who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time.” WATCH: The former president’s false claims that he won the 2020 election were greeted with applause and chants of “USA, USA” from the CPAC crowd.
