(CNSNews.com) – Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas on Sunday, former President Donald Trump slammed the “Biden administration’s far-left campaign to transform our country and erase our history.”
He also reminded conservatives what they should be fighting for.
“When we regain control of Congress, we will immediately regain control of our border,” Trump said. “We will hold China accountable for the damage and suffering they have caused and make them pay trillions of dollars in reparations, to us and to the world. We will break up the big tech monopolies and bring back free speech…we will take back our elections.”
Trump said the teaching of critical race theory to children must be defunded and stopped:
And if government-run schools are going to teach children to hate their country, we will demand school choice. And we already have.
If you listen to the media or watch the evening newscasts, our country has really gone bad. All we talk about is race. That’s all they talk about race, — the whole show — race, race. We don’t talk about our country being great anymore. We don’t talk about how America can lead the world.
We don’t talk about stopping crime, or the hundreds and hundreds of people that are being shot in Democrat-run cities and what to do about it. We don’t talk about ending the drugs pouring across our borders, which I had greatly reduced with our wall, and so many other things we are doing. And most importantly, we don’t talk about the great future of our country. We don’t talk about any of this stuff anymore.
The Democrat-controlled media talks race, race, race for political reasons. And they always have, but never like this. But it’s hurting our country, and more than anyone else, our great minority communities, it is hurting them badly.
The Democrat obsession with race is only dragging us backward into the past and it is bringing our country down to a point where even China and Russia are lecturing us on human rights, race, and they’re doing it in a very humiliating fashion. This never happened — it never happened with me.
During my administration our country was respected again…
Trump ended his speech by clearly defining what the Republican Party and “our movement” stand for:
We are all united by the same shared American values, and by unyielding resolve to defend our beloved nation, for citizens of every race, religion, color and creed. We take great pride in our country, and we teach the truth about our history. We celebrate our rich heritage and national traditions. We honor George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and all of our national heroes. And, of course, we always respect our great American flag.
We believe in patriotic education for our children. And we strongly oppose the radical indoctrination of America’s youth. We are committed to defending innocent life, and to proudly upholding the Judeo-Christian values of our nation’s founding. We embrace free thought. We stand up to political correctness. And we reject the intolerance of left-wing cancel culture.
We believe in our Constitution and in law and order. We want law and order. We demand law and order. We don’t want people shot and killed in our cities. We totally respect and support the men and women of law enforcement. They will never be defunded. We are devoted to our communities, we are loyal to our fellow citizens, and above all, we live by the words of our national motto, “In God We Trust.”
These are the convictions that define our movement today, and must define the Republican Party, which has truly become the party of the working man and woman.
Trump said Republican energies must now be focused on winning the midterm elections.
“Look what has happened to our country in just a short number of months. Everyone here today and every conservative all across our land needs to decide right now that together we will save this country.
“We must decide that we will not stop, we will not rest until our American heritage of freedom liberty and justice is once again safe and once again secure.”
