Trump: SCOTUS Should Be 'Ashamed' for Refusing to Overturn 'Rigged Election'
President Trump slams Supreme Court during speech at CPAC 2021
President Donald Trump slammed the Supreme Court during his triumphant return at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Sunday, blasting the SCOTUS for "not having the guts" to overturn the "rigged election."
During his grand comeback speech at CPAC, Trump promised a "triumphant return to the White House" as he laid into the Supreme Court for not having the "courage" to hear election fraud cases.
Trump also pounced on Joe Biden, blasting the Democrat for "the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history."
"Do you miss me yet?" Trump asked the roaring crowd as he took the stage in Orlando, Florida.
Trump's powerful 90-minute speech was packed with renewed energy as he also took aim at Big Tech firms, calling for Silicon Valley oligarchs to be reined in.
He also blasted "cancel culture," vowing to "stand up to political correctness and reject left-wing lunacy."
He mentioned by name all 17 Republicans - 10 members of the House and seven senators - who had voted to impeach him, urging a purge from the ranks of those who had crossed him.
But he reassured the crowd in his address that he will not form a new political party because it would further divide the GOP, as he previewed another White House run in 2024.
"We're not starting new parties," he said.
"We have the Republican Party.
"Wouldn't that be brilliant?" he quipped.
"Let's start a new party, let's divide our vote, so you can never win.
"No, we're not interested in that."
Speaking about the 2020 election, Trump slammed Democrats, accusing them of stealing the White House with voter fraud.
"Actually, as you know, they just lost the White House, but it's one of those things," he said of Democrats.
"But who knows, who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time," he said, previewing a potential 2024 run to take back the White House – and at the same time suggesting he already beat Biden in 2020.
Trump said the Supreme Court is partly to blame for the election results being handed to Biden, however.
"This election was rigged," the 45th POTUS said.
"And the Supreme Court and other courts didn't want to do anything about it,' he lamented.
"They didn't have the courage, the Supreme Court."
"We had almost 20 states go into the Supreme Court so that we didn't have a standing problem.
"They rejected it, they rejected it," Trump said of the dozens of lawsuits filed in an attempt to toss out ballots believed to be invalid.
"They should be ashamed of themselves for what they've done to our country," Trump said of the nine Supreme Court Justices.
"They didn't have the guts or the courage to make the right decision."
"They didn't want to talk about it," he added.
"We must pass comprehensive election reforms and we must do it now," Trump asserted.
"The Democrats used the China virus as an excuse to change all of the election rules without the approval of their state legislatures, making it, therefore - illegal."
