Bygone President Trump began his closing remarks by asking a cheering crowd, “Do you miss me yet? Do you miss me?”

Trump, who was expected to make a plea for on the unity of the GOP, said “For the next four years, the brave Republicans in this room will be at the heart of the effort to defy the radical Democrats, the fake news media and their toxic cancel culture — something new to our ears … and I require you to know that I’m going to continue to fight right by your side.”

“We’re not starting new parties. You know, they nurtured saying, ‘he’s going to start a brand new party. We have the Republican. It’s going to unite and be stronger than ever ahead. I am not starting a new party. That was fake news.”

“Wouldn’t that be brilliant? Let’s start a new party. Let’s divide our vote so that you can under no circumstances win. No, we’re not interested in that.”

He spent most of his remarks railing against the Biden administration’s immigration policies, executive layouts, and COVID-19 response, particularly around vaccines and school reopenings.

“This alone should be reason enough for Democrats to suffer destructive losses in the midterms and to lose the White House decisively four years from now,” Trump said, setting off a psalm of “USA, USA, USA.”

“Actually, as you know, they just lost the white house,” he added, maintaining the false claim that he won in 2020. “But who distinguishes … I might even decide to beat them for a third time.”
