Breitbart News reports that a CPAC spokesman said Trump has won the Republican Party’s “civil war.
A spokesman for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) argued that President Trump is the leader of the conservative movement.
Nearly every notable speaker at the CPAC convention supported Trump’s presidency or directly praised his “America First” agenda.
Donald J. Trump is not going anywhere,” said Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Texas) received a standing ovation and the loudest applause when he said, “I think it’s an important position to take,” in reference to the Jan. 6 challenge to the election’s certification.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said, “We can’t – and we won’t – go back to the failed Republican establishment of yesteryear.” He outlined a new Trump-style Republican agenda focused on immigration policy, opposing the Chinese (Communist) state and ending endless wars.
“We’re not going to win the future by trying to go back to where the Republican Party used to be,” echoed Florida Sen. Rick Scott (R), who chairs the fundraising committee charged with electing Republicans to the Senate.” If we do that, we will lose the base of work that President Trump has been so active in. We will lose elections across the country, and ultimately we will lose our country.”
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said to a round of applause, “I’m proud of our fight. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished. We’ve really turned the status quo upside down,”
Trump Jr. labeled the meeting “TPAC” in honor of his father, who he urged to return to the spotlight with his “Make America Great Again” platform.
“I suspect this is not going to be what we would call a ‘low energy’ speech,” he said.” And I promise you that it will solidify all the feelings that Donald Trump and you have about the Make America Great Again movement as the future of the Republican Party.”
And as Friday’s show wrapped up, Trump issued a statement endorsing former staffer Max Miller, who has now launched a campaign to challenge Anthony Gonzalez, another Republican who voted for impeachment.
In a statement, Trump vowed to recruit insurgent candidates “who embrace Make America Great Again and our America First policies.
Trump appears to be focused on the campaign he started, calling for the “America First” agenda to fight the “business as usual” crowd in Washington, D.C. Trump has $31 million on hand, funded by his political action committee, Save America, and his money will be invested strategically.
