Spectators cheer wildly as former President Donald Trump finishes his speech during CPAC at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, February 28, 2021.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Taking the stage for the first time since leaving office, former President Donald Trump on Sunday called for GOP unity, even as he exacerbated intraparty divisions by attacking fellow Republicans and promoting lies about the election in a speech that made clear he intends to remain a dominant political force.

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he has been hailed as a returning hero, Trump blasted his successor, President Joe Biden, and tried to lay out a vision for the future of the GOP that revolves firmly around him, despite his loss in November.

"Do you miss me yet?" Trump said after taking the stage to his old rally soundtrack and cheers from the supportive crowd.
