Donald Trump on Saturday declared himself as the only one capable of protecting the United States from the Democrats “warmongers” and “fools” of the Republican Party during an ultra-conservative forum, in which he warned Jair Bolsonaro that “his mission is not yet. ” in Brazil. To applause and applause, former US and Brazilian Presidents gave speeches at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), held in a town near Washington.
Trump, the Republican nomination for the 2024 election, has left no stone unturned. The New Yorker estimated that the country is metaphorically on its knees and Americans are “waging a heroic struggle to rescue it” from those “who hate it and want to destroy it.” “We’ve had a Republican Party that’s been rife with schmucks, neoconservatives, globalists, borderline geeks and dorks,” he said before naming a few Republican personalities.
In his view, Americans are tired of “dynastic politics protected by both sides, rotten special interests, politicians who love Chinese” and supporters of “endless foreign wars,” he added. Always hyperbolic and more inclined to suppress the fear of the population, the Republicans used the war in Ukraine to justify themselves. “We are going to have World War III if something is not done soon,” warned Trump, who disapproves of US aid to Ukraine. “I am the only candidate who can promise this: I will avoid World War III,” he said.
In almost two hours of speech, he reviewed the most frequent topics, such as the outcome of the 2020 presidential election sought by Democrat Joe Biden and which he considers fraudulent. The prosecutors “left the radicals” even at the time when he could be brought to trial, the victims of the attack on the Capitol by his supporters in January 2021. And as always, he brought no problem.
The president bragged that he had deported 10,000 migrants and started building a wall on the Mexican border with Biden, and that he would expand it if he returned to the White House. Trump announced “total chaos” at the border and accused several countries of “emptying detention centers, asylums and mental institutions and all their problems directly to the landfill: the United States.” Hundreds of thousands of migrants, most of whom are poor from Latin America, try to cross the border into the United States in search of a better life or to flee violence in their countries.
The conservative convention had notable absences such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence, two possible opponents for 2014, to avoid being humiliated by Trump’s die-hard supporters. Her only declared rival, Nikki Haley, lived up to her lead on Friday, being eliminated time and time again.
“I am your revenge;”
And Trump’s campaign, “Make America Great Again,” took over at CPAC. At the convention, the room where the group’s main speeches were half-empty, but filled when Bolsonaro and Trump took the stage.
“In 2016 I declared: I am your voice. Today I add: I am your warrior, I am your justice. And for those who have been hurt and betrayed: I am your revenge”. Trump said.
Before him, there were many bloggers who touted their Christian values and condemned the rights of transgender people.
an infected mission
Another star at CPAC was Bolsonaro, who claims to have a “super” relationship with Trump. “At this moment I thank God for my second life and also for the mission of one term as President of the Republic, but I feel that I have not yet completed this mission”, he told the audience that he was hurt. .
He began his second life after a puncture in 2018, because of the sequelae he had several times in the hospital, one of them in Florida, in the United States of America, came in December, before the inauguration of his successor. leftist Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva
67 again complained about Bolsonaro’s election results.
“I had much more support in 2022 than in 2018. I don’t know why the numbers showed the opposite,” repeated Bolsonaro, who in February announced his intention to return “in the coming weeks” to the country where the Brazilian authorities are. we ask whether or not he instigated attacks by his supporters against the Presidential Palace, Congress and the Supreme Court on January 8.
In a speech peppered with references to God and the Bible, Bolsonaro reiterated that he believes he has done “a good job.” “I remain faithful to our principles, our decision, God, country, family and freedom.”
