It is time for "tough, strong, and energetic Republican leaders" with "spines of steel" to take office and lead the nation into the future, former President Donald Trump said Sunday while railing against party members who "show more passion for condemning their fellow Americans than they have ever shown for standing up to Democrats, the media, and the radicals who want to turn America into a socialist country."
Washington's "top establishment Republicans," Trump said in his Conservative Political Action Conference speech, should be spending energy in opposing President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Democrats.
But instead, he said there are Republicans like senators "Mitt Romney, 'little' Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey" and in the House, "Tom Rice, Adam Kinzinger. Dan Newhouse. Anthony Gonzalez ... and of course, the warmonger, a person who loves seeing our troops fighting, Liz Cheney."
Cheney, he pointed out, has been censured in her state, and "her poll numbers have dropped faster than any human being I've ever seen, so hopefully they'll get rid of her with the next election."
But he said that "Democrats are vicious...there is evil there, but they're vicious. They're smart, and they do one thing. You gotta hand it to them, they always stick together. You don't have Mitt Romneys in the group. They always stick together."
But "fortunately," Democrats have "horrible policies like open borders, sanctuary cities, defunding the police and the ridiculous, totally ridiculous Green New Deal. They stick together. They're smart. They're vicious. They got everything going, but the policies, they're no good."
