Donald Trump drew a standing ovation at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas, on July 11.

Despite negative mainstream media reports, the former president continues to be a political figure with a strong foothold in the Republican Party and working-class Americans.

For more than 1.5 hours, the former president discussed principles that led him to garner so many votes in the election, including securing the border, law, and order, fighting the advance of socialism, and restoring traditional American values. He also revealed he wants to dismantle the Big Tech monopoly.

“Like socialist and communist movements throughout history, today’s leftists do not believe in freedom,” he said, reports Breitbart.

“They do not believe in democracy. They believe in Marxist morality—anything is justified as long as it hurts their political opponents and advances the radical agenda of their party.”

According to the former president, one of the gravest threats to democracy today is a powerful group of Big Tech corporations that have teamed up with the government to censor free speech in the United States.

“We are taking Mark ‘Zuckerbucks’ … and the other Silicon Valley billionaires to federal court,” Mr. Trump stated. “We will keep fighting until we have stopped this assault on our liberties and until we have restored the sacred right to freedom of speech for every single American.”

Although he managed to win all seats he endorsed in the U.S. House and Senate, he still lost the presidency. The former president maintains massive fraud removed him from power.

“We were doing so well until the rigged election came along,” he said.

“You say ‘election fraud’ and you get canceled,” he said. “Unfortunately, this was an election where the person that counts the vote was far more important than the candidate.”
