At a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland on February 28, 2021, Trump reiterated, per NBC News, his disproven claims that he only lost the 2020 election due to widespread voter fraud.

He said he chose to give the speech, rather than leave it to GOP leaders like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell or Rep Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., "because we have to save our nation" from what's going on with the Biden administration.

"Do you miss me yet?"

"The future of the Republican Party is as a party that defends the social, economic, and cultural interests and values of working American families-of every race, every color, and every creed", Trump said.

The former president then said the "incredible" movement that led him to winning the presidential polls in 2016 was just the beginning, "and in the end, we will win".

Though Trump has flirted with the the idea of creating a third party, he pledged Sunday to remain part of "our beloved" GOP. "I'm going to do what's right for our country".

Trump said that wind and solar power are far more expensive than natural gas, not necessarily environmentally friendly, and lack the capacity to adequately fuel USA factories. "We have the Republican Party".

Trump is scheduled to speak at CPAC on Sunday afternoon, marking his first public appearance since leaving the White House.

"I mean, instead of talking about personalities or, you know, who might have not agreed with him on the impeachment process, talk about what you did", Portman said, pointing to the economic growth that occurred during Trump's term before the COVID-19 pandemic.

In his speech, the former president reiterated his allegation that there was massive electoral fraud in the November 2020 presidential elections and asserted that he had actually won it.

His remarks come despite Biden's approval rating standing at 50% - higher than Trump's ever reached.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis garnered support from 21% of the attendees, making him the second top pick. Never let them take the credit, because they don't deserve the credit.

"Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history", Mr Trump said.

He has been living at his Mar-a-Lago Florida golf resort since leaving the White House.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki had brushed off the expected criticism last week.

It is not clear which type of vaccine they received and they were not disclosed at the time by the Trump White House.

Trump mentioned Katko as he recited the names of all 10 House Republicans and seven GOP senators who voted to impeach him last month for "inciting insurrection" in the U.S. Capitol attack on January 6 that left five people dead. On Friday he endorsed an ex-aide against an OH congressman who voted to impeach him. Yet Trump spent much of the speech lashing out at those he has deemed insufficiently loyal and dubbed "RINOs" - Republican in name only - for failing to stand with him.

He called into conservative news outlets after Rush Limbaugh's death and to wish Tiger Woods well after the pro golfer was injured in a auto crash. Five people died in the chaos, however: four Trump supporters, and one Capitol officer.
