And Miami Herald, March 19: Excerpts from Trump’s speech Saturday at the American Freedom Tour in Broward County

Ahead of Donald Trump's speech, Pastor Mark Burns warmed up the crowd by falsely declaring that Trump won the 2020 election and leading a chant of “Trump won.” Conservative pundit Candace Owens, according to the private event’s Twitter feed, called COVID “a government virus.”

“It was my personality that kept us out of war,” he said. “I was the only president in four decades who did not get America into any conflicts, except I totally defeated ISIS.”

“We won twice. We did much better the second time, and we may have to do it again,” said Trump, continuing to promote the lie that he won the 2020 election and teasing a third run.
