As the Washington Times rightfully declares, this year’s CPAC amply confirms that “the conservative movement has been redefined by President Trump.” As evidence, they cite the results of a CPAC poll, conducted by Jim McLaughlin. According to McLaughlin: “The president is capturing the heart, the mind, the soul of the conservative movement.”
In his two-hour-plus speech, Trump outlined the upcoming 2020 presidential campaign.
“[The Democrats are} embracing open borders, socialism and extreme late-term abortion, We believe in the American dream — not in the socialist nightmare.”
“Socialist” is a charge every Democratic aspirant will hear throughout the campaign, primary and general. The party has, in fact, by hitching its wagon to a wet-behind-the-ears former bartender-turned-firebrand from the Bronx (@AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), made a fateful decision and handed Trump a remarkable gift.
We’ll see what he does with it.
