Trump Speaks at CPAC

Headline Roundup March 1st, 2021

Former President Donald Trump spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday in his first major speech since President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Trump also criticized Biden’s immigration policies and attacked Republicans who voted in favor of impeachment, listing them by name and saying, “Get rid of them all.” Additionally, Trump dismissed the idea of forming a third party, saying, “We're not starting new parties…We have the Republican Party.
