"I hope that he does because the things that we did in my judgment made America safer and more prosperous America first is right. We will win", Trump said in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Trump will deliver a Sunday afternoon speech - one in which he is expected to continue to falsely claim that the presidential election was stolen - that will mark his first public comments since leaving the White House.

He was one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Mr Trump for a second time earlier this month. "I may even decide to beat them a third time". Biden also repealed an order threatening the financing of cities that Trump's administration felt did not support local police amid the anti-racism protests last summer. "What happens to these people when they come to the United States is tragic, and we shouldn't lead them down the false path of hope".

While past meetings have served as a forum for debate between a broad coalition of USA conservatives, attendees of this year's meeting devoted the weekend to expressing their commitment to Trump and affirming his ongoing dominance in the party. He pledged not to start a third party, and added that he'd work to elect Republicans. "It's going to be strong and united like never before". "I am not starting a new party", he reassured the supporters who were busy buying Nancy Pelosi-themed toilet rolls.

The conference, held this year in Orlando instead of the Washington suburbs because of COVID-19 restrictions, has served as a tribute to Trump and Trumpism, complete with a golden statue in his likeness on display. I'm here to support President Trump all the way.

USA Today reports Trump is not expected to announce his candidacy for 2024 though he has indicated he plans to run again.

But I can tell you, Dana, this $15 minimum wage increase would mean 30 million Americans would get a raise. Republicans oppose the $15 minimum wage target as an expense that would hurt businesses and cost jobs.

He, however, ruled out forming a new party, arguing that such a move will split votes of conservatives, and called on his supporters to unite for defeating the ruling democrats in the 2022 mid-term polls.

"A lot of new records are being broken in women's sports, I hate to say that ladies, but you have got a lot of new records that are being shattered", he told the cheering crowd. "And they want him to go away". Many of those 2024 possible candidates spoke during the CPAC event.

An hour into his speech, Trump dove deeply into his unfounded claims of election fraud, going against the advice of confidants who believe he needs to look to the future.

"We have a very sick and corrupt electoral process that has to be fixed immediately".

Pompeo also told Newsmax TV that Russian Federation was a "hot topic" during the Trump administration for a number of years, and said Democrats are getting the story "backward" on the relationship between the two countries.

Indeed, Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., another potential 2024 hopeful, drew among the loudest applause and a standing ovation when he bragged about challenging the election certification on January 6 despite the storming of the Capitol building by Trump supporters trying to halt the process. While he has already endorsed several pro-Trump candidates, aides have been working this past week to develop benchmarks for those seeking his endorsement to make sure the candidates are serious and have set up full-fledged political and fundraising organizations before he gets involved.
