The former president called Trumpism a conservative philosophy that promotes strong boundaries and fiscal and cultural conservatism

Furthermore, Trump and the conference continued to warn of the threat of so-called socialism, painting Biden and the entire Democratic Party as the radical left

“We will be united and strong like never before. We will save and strengthen America, and we will fight the onslaught of radicalism and socialism, and indeed it all leads to communism once and for all”
