As we gather tonight, our country is being destroyed before our very own eyes”

“The survival of America depends upon our ability to elect Republicans at every level—starting with the midterms next year”

“We’re going to take back the Senate, we’re going to take back the House and we’re going to take back the White House sooner than you think.”

President Trump returned to the people last night in his first major speech since greatest political theft in world history, and he did not disappoint.

At North Carolina GOP convention, vintage Trump tees up fights for 2022 and beyond

The former president came out swinging at GOP convention after making few public appearances since departing the White House.

Former President Donald Trump delivered a blistering attack Saturday night on Joe Biden’s record and cancel culture, vowing to fight aggressively in 2022 and beyond against the “disgrace” of left-wing radicalism gripping the country.

“Our border is wide open, illegal immigration is skyrocketing at a level we’ve never seen before,” Trump said in a rousing speech before the North Carolina Republican Party convention.

“Drugs are pouring in, gas prices are soaring, our industries are being pillaged by foreign cyber attacks,” he continued.

Painting a picture of a brutal yet critical fight in next year’s midterm elections, Trump told the assembly: “The survival of our country depends on our ability to elect Republicans at every level” of government.

The president has made few major public appearances since his departure from the White House in January, most notably a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February at which he hinted that he might run for the White House again in 2024.

At the Saturday convention, Trump slammed the Biden administration’s policies several months into the Democrat’s administration, linking it to much-maligned “critical race theory” and socialism. “It’s a disgrace, what’s happening to our country,” he said to the crowd.

The former president further touted his own administration’s accomplishments, highlighting the lightning-quick development and rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine. “We’ve saved a lot of lives, all over the world. We’ve saved millions and millions of lives,” he said.

He also pointed to his aggressive approach to illegal immigration, citing what he said was a “one-day turnaround” for illegal immigrants at the border and highlighting the end of the controversial “catch-and-release” approach to immigrant apprehension.

Notably, Trump slammed U.S. infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci, who is currently advising the White House on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Fauci held that role in the Trump administration last year but ultimately had a falling-out with Trump as the pandemic wore on.

Trump claimed Fauci was “not a great doctor, but a great promoter,” and claimed: “He’s been wrong on almost every issue.”

At Saturday night’s event, he provided a surprise endorsement, backing U.S. Rep. Ted Budd for the North Carolina Senate race next year after his daughter-in-law Lara announced she had opted not to run.

Trump rips Biden in return speech at NC GOP convention, vows ‘tremendous 2022’

By Jesse O’Neill, NY Post, June 5, 2021 | 10:45pm | Updated

Former President Donald Trump returned to the political stage on Saturday with a speech at the North Carolina Republican Convention, where he railed against his successor and predicted the GOP would triumph in the 2022 midterm elections.

After a nearly four-month break from public speaking, Trump took the stage as “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood blared from speakers, praising local and federal officials and candidates — and blasting “radical Democrats.”

“As we gather tonight, our country is being destroyed before our very own eyes. Crime is exploding, police departments are being ripped apart and defunded,” he told his devotees in the city of Greenville.

“Drugs are pouring in, gas prices are soaring, our industries are being pillaged by foreign cyberattacks.

“That’s a lack of respect for our country and our leaders.”

Trump, 74, struck a more subdued tone than the one that marked his more than five years of political rallies, though he still went after the country’s current leadership, assailing rising inflation rates, the cancelation of the Keystone pipeline and foreign relations.

“America’s being demeaned and ­humiliated on the world stage, our freedom is being overtaken by toxic cancel culture. Our border is wide open, illegal immigration is skyrocketing at a level that we’ve never seen before,” the former president said.

Trump also went after President Biden’s family connections to China, first made public in a series of reports by The Post in October 2020.

“Sadly, the current administration is very timid and frankly corrupt when you look at all the money they’ve been given as a family by China. And instead of holding China accountable, the Biden administration shut down the US government’s investigation into the origins of the virus shortly after taking office. What’s going on?” Trump said.

“We must never forget that Joe Biden and his family took millions of dollars from the Chinese Communist Party, they bought him off, he flagrantly lied about it to the American voters. If you remember it was a big deal at the time and all of a sudden it was canceled. They didn’t want to talk about it. The big tech and the fake news media didn’t want to talk about it.”

“The media, the Democrats and the so-called experts are now finally admitting what I first said 13 months ago, the evidence demonstrates that the virus originated in a Chinese government lab. You couldn’t say it,” Trump said.

“He’s [Fauci] been wrong on almost every issue, he was wrong on Wuhan, very wrong.”

Spinning his 2020 election defeat as a positive, Trump told the welcoming crowd that the “survival of America” hinges on GOP victories in the midterm elections.

“We are going to have a tremendous 2022 like we did frankly in 2020, more votes than any sitting president in the history of the US. We had a great election. Bad things happened, but we had a great election.”

The ex-president also invited his daughter-in-law Lara Trump on stage, who said she would not seek a Senate seat in North Carolina despite recent speculation.

Trump then gave the nod to North Carolina Rep. Ted Budd, who is running for the open US Senate seat to be vacated by retiring Republican Sen. Richard Burr next year.

Since leaving the White House, Trump has been in political exile at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and more recently his golf club in Bedminster, NJ.

Though he remains totally banned on US social media, he continues to exert enormous sway over the Republican Party and frequently receives the GOP’s highest officials, who regularly come to pay homage.

Trump’s long-term plans continue to remain a mystery, and he has still not ruled out a 2024 run for the White House.

The Republican is reportedly planning to resume political rallies across the country in coming months, leaving party officials to grapple with his rule in the GOP’s future.
