What did Donald Trump say during the CPAC?

Former President Donald Trump delivered a keynote speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2022 on Saturday, February 26, 2022.

Trump addressed a number of topics over his lengthy speech, including transgender rights and the "Biden crime family."

While speaking to a lively crowd in Orlando, Florida; Trump referred to the current government as a "corrupt and lawless political establishment."

He stated he would return in 2024 "to take on this radical and power-ruling class and deliver them defeat."

Trump also vowed to ban critical race theory from "any institution that accepts a single penny from the government."

The former president of the United States claimed he and his followers would "end Nancy Pelosi's political career once and for all."

He went on to say Mark Zuckerberg – the creator of Facebook – used to "come to the White House and kiss my a*s."

The crowd rapidly interchanged between loud cheers, chants of "USA!," and boos.

"Without the fake news, you don't have a scandal," Trump continued, referring to the "cheating" and "corruption" he claims went on during the 2020 Presidential Election.

"We will finish the wall very quickly," he added, referring to his attempted border wall.

When addressing cancel culture, Trump referred to it as a "desperation."

"My fellow Americans, this nation does not belong to the Radicals … it belongs to you," he continued.

He went on: "So to all of those who think they can coerce and subjugate the citizens of this land, hear these words from me tonight: the people of America will not surrender our borders, we will not surrender our culture, we will not surrender our faith, we will not surrender our values, we will not surrender our history, we will not surrender our liberty; and above all, we will not surrender our children."

"We will make America great again," Trump concluded.

He walked off the stage to Hold On! I'm Comin' by Sam & Dave.

The speech was streamed via Fox Nation and the CPAC website.
