Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Parker Molloy about Donald Trump's CPAC speech.
Marking his first public appearance since he left the White House, former President Donald Trump gave a lengthy, grievance-filled speech at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference where he cemented his hold over the Republican Party.
The incendiary speech was similar to the one Trump gave in Washington DC on January 6th before a mob of his supporters broke into the Capitol with the intent of harming lawmakers.
Trump repeated the lie that he won the 2020 election and attacked the U.S. Supreme Court for refusing to overturn the election in his favor. He also listed by name every Republican lawmaker that opposed him saying ominously, “get rid of them all.”
