Donald Trump gave his most powerful 2024 campaign speech yet to date at this weekend’s wildly-successful CPAC event. Trump returned to form, cracking jokes, going after political rivals, and checkmating the corrupt Democrat-globalist regime that has put its own power ahead of the needs of the American people.
“They’re not coming after me, they’re coming after you, and that’s why I’m standing here today. I’m standing before you because we’re going to finish what we started. We’re going to complete the mission,” Trump declared.
Often interrupted by chants of “Four more years!”, the 45th president – seen handing out hats that said ‘47’ on the side during a recent visit to East Palestine, Ohio – laid out the basic premise as to why his election in two years could be the most crucial facing voters in their lifetimes.
“We have no choice. If we don’t do this our country will be lost forever. People are tired of rhinos and gloveless. They want to see America first. That’s what they want. It’s not too complicated,” Trump said.
“This is the final battle. They know it. I know it you know and everybody knows that this is it,” he declared.
“Either they win, or we win. And if they win, we no longer have a country and I promise you this. If you put me back in the White House, that beautiful building, but I live in very beautiful buildings is that that reason? Beautiful, that building wasn’t the easiest building deliver,” he stated.

Not showing a hint of change or aging, the flamboyant, energetic, and charismatic Trump threw down the gauntlet against the entrenched deep state.
“If you put me back in the White House, their reign is over,” Trump said in reference to the harmful forces embedded within the federal government. “Their reign will be over. And they know and America will be a free nation once again.”
“We’re not a free nation right now,” he continued, lamenting the decline of liberty and truth in the United States. “We don’t have a free press. We don’t have free anything. In 2016 I declared I am your voice. Today I add. I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution. I am your retribution. Not gonna let this let it happen. I will totally obliterate the deep state. I will fire you.”

Trump also used his platform to not only go after the threatening globalist players but his own in-party political rivals. Posting on Truth Social ahead of his speech, Trump pointed out that his biggest rival, as of now, was nowhere to be seen.
“The only reason certain ‘candidates’ won’t be going to CPAC is because the crowds have no interest in anything they have to say. They’ve heard it all before, and don’t want to hear it again<” Trump said, mostly in reference to Florida governor Ron DeSantis.
DeSantis has previously spoken about Trump’s attacks, brushing them aside as standard political chatter and remaining focused on “delivering the wins” to his electorate.
“Then I win a big victory and all of a sudden, you know, he had different opinions, and so you can take that for what it’s worth,” DeSantis said in a Fox News appearance.
“I mean, he’s obviously a big, big fish, but I get attacked all the time from every different angle and you either put points on the board or you don’t. And so I just focus on delivering the wins. And I think we’ve done a pretty good job of following through on our promises,” he added.
Nikki Haley, who announced her candidacy, did present at CPAC on Friday, but was drowned out by chants of “Trump! Trump! Trump!”
“The last two Republican presidents added more than $10 trillion to the national debt. Think about that. A third of our debt happened under just two Republicans,” Haley said during her speech. “If we nominate another big spender in 2024, we’re going to lose.”
