Trying to find news sources that aren't behind paywalls. May not work outside the US.
Despite Republicans cooling on him, CPAC is still the Trump show
Saturday marked the final day of the Conservative Political Action Conference, and former President Donald Trump delivered the closing act.
"Change only happens if we plow fearlessly ahead and declare with one voice that the era of woke and weaponized government is over. That is our task, that is our mission. And this is the turning point and the time for that decision," Trump said, speaking to a crowd of CPAC attendees at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Maryland. The speech comes more than three months after he announced another bid for president.
The former president spoke for more than 90 minutes, ticking through a list of pledges for a second term in office while also hitting on points he's repeatedly made in past speeches since leaving the White House, notably the lie that he won the 2020 election.
Trump also criticized a handful of the Biden administration's policies, vowing to end the war in Ukraine and cut down on U.S. foreign aid.
He took aim at establishment Republicans that led the party in the early and mid-2010s – calling out the change in party ideals since he became a prominent political figure.
"We had a republican party that was ruled by freaks, neocons, globalists, open borders zealots and fools but we are never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove and Jeb Bush," he said.
