Former President Donald Trump promised Americans that he would "obliterate the Deep State" if he wins the election in 2024. Trump made the promise alongside many others in a bombastic speech at CPAC on Saturday.
Trump proclaimed, "In 2016, I declared I am your voice. Today, I add, I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution."
The former president seems to understand what went wrong with his first term, and he has clearly identified what must be done should he win another term.
Trump continued by saying, "I will fire the unelected bureaucrats and shadow forces who have weaponized our justice system like it has never been weaponized before. Sick – these are sick people. I will put the people back in charge of this country again."
Plans for a hypothetical second term involve a massive overhaul of the federal bureaucracy. The last eight years have made it clear that the system and the people who have been working in federal agencies for their entire lives are the reason this country is failing.
The only question that remains is whether Trump will coast essentially unopposed to the nomination or if Republican voters choose a younger candidate with less baggage.
