POLITICAL WRAP: Former President Trump Returns to National Stage, Hints at 2024 Run

ORLANDO, F.L. – Former President Trump is making his return to the political stage.

He was the closing speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando.

In his first public comments since leaving the White House, Trump says the journey begun four years ago is “far from over” and says he might even run again in 2024.

“The brave Republicans in this room will be at the heart of the effort to oppose the radical Democrats, the fake news media, and their toxic, cancel culture,” Trump told the crowd.

The GOP talks a good game, but let’s review those conservative principles

What is the Republican Party in 2021? It’s easier to say what it’s not.

With a majority of the party’s House members voting to invalidate the results of a free and fair election, and a good chunk of its voters going along with the fantasy that Donald Trump was robbed, it’s clear the GOP is not a stickler for democracy or the Constitution. And with most Republican senators not interested in holding an impeachment trial for a former president accused of “inciting an insurrection,” Americans can be pretty sure the party is not too keen on accountability.

It’s not a new contradiction. But while it’s true that the GOP has long instructed voters not to “look behind the curtain,” the mess that is spilling out has become impossible to ignore. The sight of thousands of violent rioters storming the center of legislative government will do that.

So what are just a few of the slogans that have crumbled?
