Former President Donald Trump returned to the stage on Saturday night, delivering a speech at the North Carolina Republican Party State Convention, and claiming America is backsliding under President Joe Biden.
“It’s great to be back in Greenville with so many proud, North Carolina patriots who love our country, support ติดต่อ slotxo our military, respect our police, honor our flag and always put America first, we don’t put America second,” Trump said as he opened his speech. “As we gather tonight, our country is being destroyed before our very own eyes.”
The 90-minute speech sounded much like one from Trump’s 2020 campaign, touting the accomplishments of the administration, including development of the COVID-19 vaccine, Wall Street’s rise, building the border wall and curtailing immigration and his tough stance on Iran and China.
Trump’s speech in Greenville, North Carolina, was his first political appearance outside his new home state of Florida since he left office in January. In late February, he delivered the keynote address at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando where he teased a 2024 comeback bid while promoting the false claim that the November election was “rigged” against him.
Since then, the former president has only doubled down on spreading conspiracies about the election, backing so-called “audits” in Arizona and Georgia and calling for others in the battleground states he lost. Official, nonpartisan audits have already taken place in any closely contested state and found no irregularities that would change the results.
Trump referred to “bad things” happening in the 2020 election, while saying the GOP would have a “tremendous 2022” in the midterm elections. Trump teased — slightly — a 2024 run as well.
“We’re going to win North Carolina’s all important US Senate race, and we’re going to lay the groundwork for making sure that Republicans once again carry the great state of North Carolina, in a number, a year, that I very much look forward to: 2024,” he said.
