While doing so, Trump teased a possible 2024 run, bolstered by the CPAC straw poll.

Appearing early on MSNBC on Monday morning, a former Republican Party U.S. House member said that former Vice President Mike Pence's political career appears to be over due to how he was treated by the CPAC crowd and ignored by the resurgent Donald Trump. It is going to unite and be stronger than before. "I am not starting a new party", he said.

'It's up to the voters and the voters are saying overwhelmingly they agree with what President Trump did in office, ' McDaniel said.

"We will be united and strong like never before. We will save and strengthen America and we will fight the onslaught of radicalism, socialism and indeed, it all leads to communism", said Trump, who spent much of his speech hitting out at US President Joe Biden.

As seen in the video above, several of those who travelled to Orlando said they hoped Mr Trump would stand again for the presidency in 2024 and repeated his false claims that he had won the 2020 election.

"As you know, they just lost the White House", he said of Biden, rewriting history.

The conference, held this year in Orlando instead of the Washington suburbs because of COVID-19 restrictions, has served as a tribute to Trump and Trumpism, complete with a golden statue in his likeness on display.

"They just lost the White House", the Republican former president said after criticizing Biden's handling of border security.

While past meetings have served as a forum for debate between a broad coalition of USA conservatives, attendees of this year's meeting devoted the weekend to expressing their commitment to Trump and affirming his ongoing dominance in the party.

As Trump prepares to make a comeback to the political spotlight in his speech at CPAC Sunday afternoon, Cassidy reminded CNN that this gathering does not represent the whole of the Republican Party.

He said "President Trump has flaws" but that he had made the party more approachable for working-class Americans. CPAC is an event organized by the American Conservative Union, whose chairman, Matt Schlapp, is close to Trump.

Trump was impeached in the US House of Representatives for "incitement of insurrection" in relation to the riot, but later acquitted in the US Senate.

And he insisted the party was united, even as he called out by name Republicans who voted to impeach him for inciting the January 6 riot at the Capitol, including the No. 3 House Republican, Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, and lashed those he labels RINOs, "Republican in name only".

Pro-Trump Republicans defended Trump amid accusations he incited the mob of his supporters that overran the Capitol building, while others publicly criticised him and some even voted for his impeachment. He has also issued statements, including one blasting Mitch McConnell after the Senate Republican leader excoriated Trump for inciting the Capitol riot.

"This is his effort to control that party", Hendren reported. In fact, most of us realize he is much better at golfing than governing which is really saying a lot if you know anything about Donald Trump's golf game", before adding, "Donald Trump lost, not because more Democrats came out. Trump said after taking the stage, where his old rally soundtrack had been playing.

Those in attendance at CPAC responded by making Trump their overwhelming favorite to win the Republican nomination in 2024.

Starting his speech more than an hour late, Trump said he wanted to save the culture and identity of the United States.

"I think he has been great for our country".

Scott said he spoke to Trump "about a week ago, and I told him, 'This is my job".

"I'm not backing down", said Hawley, one of the Republican senators who voted to overturn the results of the USA election, which earned him an extended standing ovation at the conference. "Not a chance! Not a chance!"
