He is out of office but not out on insults.
At the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, former President Donald Trump railed against several of his frequent targets — President Biden and immigrants — on Sunday.
“Joe Biden has brought our country to the brink of ruin,” Trump told his audience. “Right here in Texas, we are the epicenter of a border and migration crisis unlike anything anyone has seen before.”
He also criticized the tech giants that he sued last Thursday for blocking him.
“These Silicon Valley tyrants are also attacking our democracy itself,” he said, making baseless allegations that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg funded efforts to interfere with ballots last year.
He took note of the media coverage and said, “Look at all those fake journalists back there.”
In a Fox News appearance, Trump had nothing but praise for the fanatical supporters that stormed into the U.S. Capitol in January.
Jan. 6, was a chaotic day for his supporters as he delivered a speech at a rally in Washington. Congress was meeting to finish the Electoral College results for the November 2020 presidential election.
Trump stated that the rally was called by patriots and people. They asked him if he’d speak.
He said that they were there to witness the rigged election and repeated his discredit claims about the contest.
“They were peaceful people, these were great people, the crowd was unbelievable and I mentioned the word love,” he said. “The love in the air, I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Trump reiterated his decision to run for reelection, but he refused to confirm it. The GOP continues to support the former president, who was twice impeached.
Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, was also honored by him. She was fatally shot trying to enter a blocked passage during the siege. He called her an “innocent, wonderful, and incredible woman.”
A number of people were charged in connection with the attack on the Capitol that resulted in the deaths of five people.
