Just a month after leaving office, Donald Trump on Sunday broke with the practices of past former presidents and took on the man who beat him in the 2020 election.During a keynote address in Orlando, Fla., that lasted an hour and a half — and began more than an hour late — to the friendly Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, Trump blasted President Biden’s tenure so far.He called it “the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history” and hit Biden on many fronts — from immigration to national security to Biden’s coronavirus pandemic response.The main thrust of Trump’s criticism, though, was on immigration policy. He claimed Biden was “eliminating our [southern] border,” triggering “a massive flood of illegal immigration” that was letting criminals pour out onto U.S. streets.It was similar to the dark and nativist anti-immigration vision that helped launch Trump to political prominence in the first place, from his 2015 presidential campaign announcement.

Trump called on Biden to reopen schools, which closed down during Trump’s tenure due to the pandemic, saying that Biden “caved to the teachers unions.””They’re cheating the next generation of Americans out of the future that they deserve, and they do deserve this future,” Trump said. “They’re going to grow up and they’re going to have a scar.Biden has said his goal is to have the majority of schools open for in-person learning within the first 100 days of his administration.The former president did not save his ire exclusively for his successor. He maintained the false conspiracy theory that he actually won the 2020 election, and despite picking three of the Supreme Court’s current members, he blasted the court for not siding with him, saying the justices should be “ashamed.”
