Former President Donald J. Trump said on Saturday he would “obliterate the Deep State” if elected president and told supporters he is their “warrior” and “retribution.”

“In 2016, I declared: I am your voice,” he said, speaking for just over 100 minutes from a bright blue and red stage in a cavernous ballroom at the closing speech of the CPAC event in Maryland. “Today, I add: I am your warrior. I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed: I am your retribution,” he said.

Amid a primary field with only two declared opponents, the 45th President vowed to “completely eradicate the Deep State,” which was followed by chants of “USA,” as reported by Breitbart News.

“For seven years you and I have been engaged in an epic struggle to rescue our country from the people who hate it and want to absolutely destroy it,” he said, as reported by the Guardian.

“We are going to finish what we started. We started something that was a miracle. We’re going to complete the mission, we’re going to see this battle through to ultimate victory. We’re going to make America great again.”

At the beginning of the week, Trump unveiled his latest policy video since starting his campaign in November, wherein he suggested a “comprehensive pro-American revamp of our tax and trade policies” to enhance American manufacturing and put an end to reliance on China.
