Tonight, Former President Donald Trump gave his first major speech since February. It happened in North Carolina, at the state’s Republican convention, and some news was made – though it wasn’t necessarily from Trump himself.

Here are a few clips of the speech for posterity.

Amen President Trump

“Without a border you cannot have a nation, certainly not a great nation. We fight for other countries borders but we don’t fight for our own border. Think of it, we fight for other countries borders but not for our own.” #AmericaFirst pic.twitter.com/tNZkXgyPIU

While much of the speech was what we’ve been used to hearing from him in these situations since 2016, there were some new parts mixed in. Specifically, Trump hammered China’s involvement in COVID and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Some of this may fall flat, though, given that Trump himself had the power to oust Fauci and never did, even after a year of Fauci undermining him. In my opinion, that was one of the biggest mistakes of his presidency.

Regardless, Trump also mentioned battling in 2022 to take back the House and Senate. Yet, he stopped short again of announcing or even really hinting at his own run for president again, and that seems like it’ll be the case until after the mid-terms. The strategy seems to be to focus on Congress right now, and that’s the best move, in my opinion.

The recent announcement of a criminal probe into Trump’s organization was brought up too.

TRUMP: “Impeachment hoax #1, impeachment hoax #2, all of these investigations — ‘Ahh shit!
