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 history, and perhaps in world history,” Trump added while highlighting the large surge of illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
The former president also riled up the crowd by discussing his series of lawsuits aimed at big tech giants.
“They are hard at work to abolish the First Amendment as well. The radical left and big tech’s attack on free speech is unlawful , it’s unconstitutional and it is completely unAmerican,” he detailed to the crowd of thousands.
The speech was aired and detailed by Fox News and published by other media outlets. However, Youtube blocked the American Conservative Union’s (ACU) from posting Trump’s CPAC speech. Previously, the platform deleted a video featuring former President Trump’s announcement of his class-action lawsuit against Big Tech, citing an alleged violation of its COVID-19 terms and conditions.
