Trump to Target Biden and Blaze a Future Path for the GOP in CPAC Speech

Political News

Former President Donald Trump will attack President Joe Biden’s abrupt reversals of his policies and lay out a future for the Republican Party in his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday afternoon, sources told Fox News.

Trump will hammer Biden on immigration and China. Biden has rushed to reverse Trump’s policies on immigration, including the former president’s limits on immigration to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, Biden has moved so fast that a federal court blocked his moratorium on deportations mere days into his presidency.

The former president would be wise to train his fire on his successor, especially since Biden is rushing headlong into divisive and dangerous policies. Biden’s extensive climate executive order will hobble America’s national security, just as he tries to resurrect the Iran deal, and throws open America’s southern border. The new president’s policies will wreak havoc on the nation, and Republicans need to focus on explaining to the American people just how dangerous they are.

Trump will also lay out a future path for the Republican Party. According to Fox News, the former president “is expected to fall just short of announcing a 2024 presidential bid.” The sources said Trump will go between “warming up to the idea of a 2024 run, and walking right up to the line of announcing another campaign,” but he is not expected to make the formal announcement.

While CPAC has traditionally taken place in the Washington, D.C., area, the American Conservative Union has moved the conference to Orlando, Fla., this year. Trump will speak, but former Vice President Mike Pence will not.

A few central questions about Trump’s speech remain unanswered. Will the former president relitigate the 2020 election? He has previously claimed that the election was rigged and that he should have won in a landslide. While issues of voter integrity plagued the 2020 election and Trump would be right to call for election reform, it would be a mistake for him to claim the election was stolen.

Will Trump attack the Republicans who voted to impeach and remove him from office? Last week, the former president effectively launched a GOP civil war by ripping into Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who echoed Democrats’ accusations that Trump incited the Capitol riot on January 6. This week, Axios reported that Trump will support primary challenges against some of the Republicans who oppose him and that Trump will give funding and endorsements to “the Trumpiest candidates.”

Trump should tout his strong policy legacy, attack Biden’s excesses, and attempt to unify the party behind a conservative vision. He should resist the urge to relitigate the 2020 election and eviscerate his fellow Republicans. If the GOP can unify, the party has a real chance at retaking the House of Representatives and the Senate in 2022. Biden backlash is building, and Republicans need Trump to direct their energies in one powerful direction.

This CPAC speech will be Trump’s first major address after his presidency, and it comes with great potential for leadership and grave peril if he takes it in a different direction. Democrats are working overtime to tie Trump to the Capitol riot, and if he relitigates the 2020 election or gives any hint that he supported the rioters — not the large crowd of Trump supporters on January 6, but the small band of lawbreakers who breached the Capitol — he will give them the excuse they’re salivating for.

Similarly, if Trump tears open the GOP, he may unwittingly allow Democrats to achieve what was likely their true goal in impeachment — pitting Republicans against one another. With Biden in the White House, conservatism and the Republican Party are more important than ever. Trump should put his very reasonable grudges in perspective and seek unity, keeping his eyes on the prize of 2022.

Whatever happens, stay tuned on Sunday for one hell of a speech.

  1. The future Republican party should be one of conservative values and freedom. We need to get rid of the RINOS like Pierre Delecto, Mitch McConnel, Liz Chenney, Lisa Murkowski and others. All those who voted to impeach a president who was out of office have to be removed from office. We need to hold a convention of states without the RINOs or the democrats in attendance. In that convention we put in term limits for congress, stricter voting requirements including voter ID and no mail in ballots, reaffirm the 2nd amendment making it clear and illegal to infringe on gun rights, removing unconstitutional parts of the federal government (at this point that’s probably about 80% of it) and rewriting certain amendments to make more sense such as being born on American soil does not automatically make you citizen.

  2. You are forgetting that the “small band of lawbreakers who breached the Capitol” has been expanded by Democrats and Never-Trumpers to include anyone seen near the Capitol whether or not they entered the People’s House. Newly branded as domestic terrorists by RINOS like McConnell, Trump supporters should have no truck with any Republicans who do NOT support an audit of swing states and election ID going forward – such an obvious democracy issue that there is no other country in the world that doesn’t require it.

  3. Biden is doing a great job helping the Republicans win the next Election. We must get rid of the Rinos including Mitch they can’t be trusted to stand with other Republicans.

    1. Hell, we won this last election, look what happened! Still, the way biden is ruining the country, maybe a lotta these Woke fools will wake-up and help turn things back around. Need to cancel this cancel culture!

  4. For all the good it will do!!! The last TRUE election was held in 2016. And since Demoshits never got over it and cannot win a FAIR election there was no “election” in 2020. What was conducted was a Deep State SELECTION!!! All the signs were present for the Deep State’s setting up a “Fifth Reich” I say this because even though I was young I remember the events that occurred in Nazi Germany no elections just the Gestapo herding and executing people if they didn’t comply with the Wehrmacht!! What I am witnessing now is nearly a carbon copy of what I experienced in Nazi Germany meaning we are fast becoming Nazi America!! Consider the SEWER-RAT party conducting five year siege on the oval office endless investigations culminating in a SHAMPEACHMENT followed by a FABRICATED Pandemic to allow for FRAUDULENT voting via mail in ballots which cannot be authenticated! Then another SHAMPEACHMENT (and if convicted prohibiting Trump from future running for public office. This entire process REEKS with Deep State and foreign involvement!! There will NEVER be another election of the CSA (Communist States of America) the Globalist Elite have been successful at rigging elections by BUYING/INTIMIDATING/COERCING & BLACKMAILING politicians and Judges. America is NO LONGER “the land of the free and home of the brave”! America is now the Land OWNED by the Deep State Elite and home of SHEEP who have CAPITULATED!!!

  5. Return to the Declaration of Independence and its Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. The Constitution must reflect the principles of the Declaration. No Christian principles result in no Christian blessings. God blessed America and America separated Church from State.
