ABC News reports:
Former President Donald Trump boasted about his “packed” speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Monday after Chris Christie knocked the conference as being “half-full” a day prior.
“You saw the scenes at CPAC. That room was half-full,” Christie said. “Let’s not pretend that CPAC is CPAC anymore. It’s TPAC. It’s Trump-PAC. It’s not CPAC any longer. Only the most desperate people showed up at CPAC to speak, other than Trump or people in Trump’s orbit.”
Trump, without specifically mentioning Christie’s remarks, defended his speech’s audience size in a Truth Social post Monday morning. “CPAC was packed for my speech, you couldn’t get into the building. A special thanks to the area Fire Department for making it work so well. Great job!” he wrote.
