Trump Slams Biden Over Border Crisis, Iran, Energy, Women’s Sports In CPAC Speech — Says He Won’t Create A New Party

Former President Donald Trump ripped President Joe Biden in various issues during his speech at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) from the brewing crisis at the southern border, to his foreign policy and his failure to reopen schools while committing not to create a new party ahead of the 2022 and 2024 elections.

“Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history,” Trump said in his first major appearance since leaving office tearing the current Democratic administration as “anti-jobs, anti-families, anti-border, anti-energy, anti-women and anti-science.”

“In one short month we have gone from America First to America Last,” he said.

Trump rips Biden on border security, reopening of schools

In his speech on Sunday, the former Republican president tore Biden’s immigration policies — which mainly reversed his tight border controls — and in turn has seen droves and droves of migrants at the Mexico border, putting the border situation in a brink of a crisis

“It took the new administration only a few weeks to turn this unprecedented accomplishment into a self-inflicted humanitarian and national security disaster,” Trump said, repeatedly pounding on the issue throughout his hour and a half speech.

“By recklessly eliminating our border, security measures, controls, all the things we put into place, Joe Biden has triggered a massive flood of illegal immigration into our country like we’ve never seen before.”

He also blasted how the Biden administration has largely kept restrictions in place while callously acting to open the border to migrants and increase the number of refugees admitted to the US from 15K to 125K .  

“Your family can still not go out to eat at local restaurants, but Joe Biden is bringing in thousands upon thousands of refugees from all over the world, people who no one knows anything about,” Trump said. 

The former president went on to hit Biden on his failed promise to reopen schools amid fierce resistance from powerful teachers unions — while saying that Biden “sold out America’s children to the teachers’ unions.”

“They must get back and get back right now, right now,” Trump lashed. “The Biden administration is actually bragging about the classroom education they are providing to migrant children on the border while at the same time, millions of American children are having their futures destroyed by Joe Biden’s anti-science school closures.”

“There’s no reason whatsoever why the vast majority of young Americans should not be back in school immediately. The only reason that most parents do not have that choice is because Joe Biden sold out America’s children to the teachers’ unions,” he said.

Trump said Biden’s position is “morally inexcusable.”

“You know that. Joe Biden has shamefully betrayed America’s youth, and he is cruelly keeping our children locked in their homes, no reason for it whatsoever, they want to get out.”

“On behalf of all the moms and dads, I call on Joe Biden to open the schools and get them open now,” he demanded.

Trump calls Biden’s energy policy a “disaster”

The former president also unloaded on Biden’s energy policies which had the US returning to reliance on Russia and the Middle East — after years of energy independence under his administration.

“One of my proudest accomplishments as president was to make America energy independent. The United States became the number one energy superpower. Became number one, bigger than Saudi Arabia, bigger than Russia by a lot. We left them all in the dust. But if the Democrats have their way, we are heading from energy dominance to energy disaster. That’s what’s happening. 

“But now it’s going the opposite because now they’re taking this incredible energy independence away from the people of our country. And you’re going to see costs go like you have never seen them go before. It’s a very sad and very stupid thing that they’re doing,” he added, noting that Biden policies are a “massive win” for other oil producing countries and a loss for the United States.

Trump also blasted Biden’s foreign policy on Iran – calling out the Democratic president for “stand down” on Iran sanctions.

“The new administration unilaterally withdrew our crippling sanctions on Iran, foolishly giving away all of America’s leverage before negotiations have even begun,” Trump scolded Biden.

“Leave the sanctions, negotiate. Does anybody understand what I’m saying here? he said.

Trump says “we must protect the integrity of women’s sports”

The former president also slammed the Democratic Party’s efforts to allow transgender athletes to compete against biological women in sports saying that this endangers women’s sports and puts them at a disadvantage. 

Trump emphasized that “we must protect the integrity of women’s sports.”

“Joe Biden and the Democrats are even pushing policies that would destroy women’s sports … young girls and women are in sex that they are now being forced to compete against those who are biological males. It’s not good for women. It’s not good for women’s sports, which worked so long and so hard to get to where they are … If this does not change, women’s sports, as we know it, will die.”

Trump also called for “comprehensive election reform” and for conservatives to take on Big Tech companies.

“Republicans and conservatives must open up our platforms and repeal Section 230 liability protections – and if the federal government refuses to act, then every state in the union, where we have the votes … Big Tech giants like Google and Facebook must be punished with sanctions whenever they silence conservative voices.”

During his CPAC speech, the former president also paid “love and respect” to conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.

“I also want to pay my love and respect to the great Rush Limbaugh, who is watching closely and smiling down on us,” Trump told the enthusiastic audience.“He is watching, and he’s loving it.”

Trump: “I am not starting a new party”

Meanwhile, contrary to widely reported claims that he is creating a new party, former President Trump pledged not to create a new party — as he spoke about the need to elect “strong, tough, and smart Republican leaders” in a crowd where his influence was felt throughout. 

“We are not starting new parties, they kept saying ‘he’s going to start a brand new party.’ We have the Republican Party, it’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before – I am not starting a new party, that was fake news,” the former president said.

While he didn’t announce a 2024 run, Trump did say he might consider beating Democrats “for a third time” as he teased that “a Republican president will make a triumphant return to the White House.”

“And I wonder who that will be, I wonder who that will be?” he said to large cheers from the crowd. “Who, who, who will that be I wonder?”

During the CPAC, Trump also won the annual straw poll with 55% of attendees saying they’d vote for him if the 2024 GOP primary were held that day — with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in second place with 21%. 

The same straw poll also found that 95% of CPAC attendees   want the Republican Party to continue with Trump’s issues and agenda going forward.

Former president Trump opened up his speech at CPAC in Florida with: “Do you miss me yet?”
