Trump plans to tell CPAC crowd: ‘I am your retribution’



Former President Donald Trump will claim in his speech Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference that he can bring conservatives “retribution” against Democrats and establishment Republicans.

According to an excerpt of his speech obtained by CNN, Trump plans to say he will steer the GOP toward a more isolationist stance — a position that puts him at odds with his former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley, who 2024 campaign has already launched. pray, and several other potential Republican presidential candidates.

“We will never go back to a party that wants to give unlimited money to fight endless foreign wars, but demands that we reduce veterans’ benefits and pensions at home,” Trump is expected to say.

His speech claims that President Joe Biden is leading the nation into “oblivion” and that other Republicans would be unable to correct course.

“I am the only candidate who can make this promise: I will prevent World War III,” the excerpt reads.

Trump is popular at the annual Conservative meeting. He was the first choice of 62% of CPAC attendees who were asked who they voted as GOP nominee in 2024. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who did not attend this year’s event, finished second with 20% support . The straw poll is not a scientific study and not representative of the broader GOP voter public, as it is limited to CPAC participants.

In his speech, Trump is expected to pledge to purge the government of “entrenched political dynasties in both parties.”

“In 2016 I declared: I am your voice. Today I add: I am your warrior. I am your righteousness. And to those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution,” Trump plans to say. “I will completely destroy the deep state. I will fire the unelected bureaucrats and shadow forces who have armed our justice system. And I will put the people back in charge of this country.”

Trump’s remarks will wrap up the slimmed-down CPAC meeting as the 2024 presidential race begins to take shape and several high-profile Republicans prepare their bids to stop Trump from winning the party’s nomination for a third consecutive cycle.

According to the excerpt, Trump will claim that the country, as he sees it, will be “lost forever” if he is not victorious in 2024.

“This is the last fight – they know it, I know it, you know it, everyone knows it. Either they win or we win. And I promise you this: if you put me back in the White House, their rule will be over and America will be a free nation again,” Trump is expected to say.

Trump also plans to use the speech to promise a drastic crackdown on illegal immigration and crime in big cities, including “harsh consequences for juvenile criminals” whom he will call “monsters out of control.”
