During former President Donald Trump’s speech at a National Republican Congressional Committee dinner this Monday in Tampa, he called for conservatives to boycott any and all companies that don’t support “conservative principles.”

“We need nationwide boycotts of companies that don’t believe in Republican and conservative principles. We’re not going to buy their product if they’re not going to buy our policy. If they’re not going to respect us, we’re not going to do it. Watch how quickly these companies will change if we do this,” he said.

He also encouraged conservatives “to boycott the media that doesn’t treat us fairly,” but truth be told, it seems most conservatives are already doing that.

Listen to the former president’s remarks below from the 3:55 mark, or better yet, just watch the whole clip from beginning to end:

The highlight reel from the former president’s speech was originally shared at “The Desk of Donald Trump,” a website used by Trump to convey his thoughts and also share relevant news stories.

This was the same speech in which, as previously reported, Trump excoriated the House and Senate Republicans who’d voted last week in favor of Democrats’ ostensibly bipartisan infrastructure bill.

“I say it with a heavy heart — no thank you goes to those in the House and Senate who voted for the Democrats’ non-infrastructure bill, also known as the Democrat presidential re-election bill. It’s only 11 percent infrastructure. Much of is Green New Deal crap. Just like throwing money out the window,” he said.

He added that these Republicans had given “Biden a victory as his poll numbers were falling off a cliff.”

This is true.

“The American people want us and need us to fight tooth and nail to stop the multi-trillion-dollar socialist monstrosity the Democrats are racing to pass. So until that vote, there’s only one goal: We must kill the bill,” he continued, referencing the next major bill Democrats seek to pass.

The former president made these remarks in the presence of one of the thirteen House Republicans who’d voted for the bill, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis. She was reportedly the only one of the “RINOs” to show their face.

And according to an attendee who later spoke with Juliegrace Brufke of the New York Post, she was left “visibly shaken” by the former president’s criticism.

The highlight reel also shows Trump listing what all Republicans should do/pursue once they reclaim power.

“You should ban critical race theory. We did it. We did it in the military and all government. You should save America’s suburbs from Biden’s CRT-inspired housing agenda,” he said.

“You should force the Interior Department to build the National Garden of American Heroes that I announced in my speech at Mt. Rushmore. You should stop all federal taxpayer dollars from going to big tech monopoly,” the former president added.

“CRT-inspired housing” refers to the Obama-concocted plot to abolish suburban communities for the purpose of combating alleged racism. According to so-called “progressives,” the suburbs are remnants of white supremacy. No joke.

“In early 2009, the Obama administration made a surprising, probably unprecedented accusation against Westchester County, New York—a pretty liberal place. According to the Obama administration … [a]ll those single-family homes — row upon leafy row, set back from the street, well-tended lawns and mailboxes — were examples of racism — literally ‘structural racism,'” Fox News host Tucker Carlson explained back in June.

“The only solution, the Obama people announced, was much greater density: more subsidized housing complexes in Westchester, more hi-rise apartment buildings, maybe some drug-addicted vagrants living on the sidewalk, begging for change. Only if Westchester became more like the Bronx could it become non-racist,” he added.

During his tenure in office, Trump rolled back these policies. But upon taking office in January, current President Joe Biden reinstituted them, leaving Americans back at square one.

Continuing his remarks at the NRCC dinner Monday, the former president gave a shout-out to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy for pursuing a parents’ bill of rights for the dissenting parents who’ve been targeted by teachers’ unions and the Biden administration alike for speaking out against the teaching of racial essentialism in schools.

“I congratulate Kevin on his announcement that the House GOP will be introducing a parents’ bill of rights. That’s so beautiful. The sound of that is so beautiful,” he said.

“And I hope it includes a right for any parent to opt out of the indoctrination and send their child to the private charter or faith-based school of their choice. These are the kind of bold ideas House Republicans should run on,” Trump added.
