And though Trump never outright stated that he had received the COVID-19 vaccination himself, New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman wrote in a March 1 tweet that an unnamed adviser confirmed that both the president and first lady were vaccinated in the White House in January. "Together in the coming years, we will carry forward the torch of American liberty", he said, alleging that the policies of the Biden administration were taking the country on the path of socialism and vowed to not let the country move in that direction. He said Biden's reversal of his actions on immigration has resulted in a flood of illegal aliens, especially minors.

The White House wouldn't comment on certain policies like the citizens' petition but reiterated Biden's pledge for "ethics and transparency" in a statement to Politico.

Others, like House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, have taken great pains to walk back initial criticism of Trump's role on January 6, when he urged his supporters to march on the Capitol.

He also hinted at a second presidential run in three years' time.

"The good news is in her state, she's been censured", Trump said.

He demanded that Biden reopen schools across the country, accusing him of fealty to teachers' unions, some of which oppose classroom instruction amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Still, Trump fervour at the four-day CPAC event has been so strong that Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., declared it "T-PAC", and participants rolled out a golden statue of the former president.

Trump did not use his speech to announce plans to run again, but he repeatedly teased the prospect as he predicted a Republican would win back the White House in 2024.

For some Republicans like Senator Bill Cassidy, who voted to convict Trump in the impeachment trial, moving on from the brash billionaire is critical.

On ABC's "This Week", host George Stephanopoulos asked the retiring senator about Trump's apparent return to the political arena with a Sunday speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), noting that fellow GOP Sen. The former president said, "the time has come to break up the Big Tech monopolies".

All this did not change Trump's position on the election. None of the speakers criticized the former president.

"And the Supreme Court and other courts didn't want to do anything about it", Trump quipped.

They also repeated in panel after panel his unfounded claims that he lost reelection only because of mass voter fraud, even though such claims have been rejected by judges, Republican state officials and Trump's own administration. He was the top choice of 55% of those who attended the speech. He said her poll numbers dropped, and he hoped she would lose her next election. "This election was rigged", Trump re-proclaimed to a loudly cheering audience at CPAC (via Variety).

The speech often resembled his signature rally addresses with a message akin to that of a campaign platform.

With your help, we will take back the House. "Companies that leave America to create jobs in China, and other countries that have ripped us off for years, should not be rewarded; they should be tariffed, fined, and punished".

One of the organisation's advisers, Mario Castillo, who is a Republican lobbyist, said the super PAC will "provide air cover for the members of the Congress" who turned against Trump, but did not elaborate on specific actions.
