Donald Trump has announced the Republicans in the U.S. House and Senate that he plans to target and go after in the near future.

“I will be actively working to elect strong, tough, and smart Republican leaders,” Trump claimed.

“Now more than ever is the time for tough, strong, and energetic Republican leaders who have spines of steel. We need strong leadership. We cannot have leaders who show more passion for condemning their fellow Americans than they have ever shown for standing up to Democrats, the media, and the radicals who want to turn America into a socialist country,” he added.

“Instead of attacking me and, more importantly, the voters of our movement, top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending their energy in opposing Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats,” Trump said.

“I’ve said to some of them, I said, you know, during the Obama years and now during Biden, if you spent the same energy on attacking them, you’d actually be successful,” he continued.

Trump then revealed the names on his “revenge list”:

“The Democrats don’t have grandstanders like Mitt Romney, little Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey,” Trump stated.

“And in the house, Tom Rice, South Carolina, Adam Kinzinger, Dan Newhouse, Anthony Gonzalez, that’s another beauty, Fred Upton, Jaime Herrera Beutler, Peter Meijer, John Katko, David Valadao, and of course the warmonger, a person that loves seeing our troops fighting, Liz Cheney, how about that?” he added.

“The good news is in her state, she’s been censured, and in her state, her poll numbers have dropped faster than any human being I’ve ever seen,” Trump added.

During his speech at CPAC, Trump said he is not going to create a new political party, despite reports that he was considering doing so, saying that there was no need to because “we have the Republican Party.”

“We will do what we’ve done right from the beginning, which is to win,” Trump said.

“We’re not starting new parties. You know, they kept saying, ‘He’s going to start a brand new party.’ We have the Republican Party; it’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before. I am not starting a new party. That was fake news,” he added.

WATCH:

Trump’s comments come after he slammed “fake news” reports back in January that he was planning to put his name behind the “Patriot Party” that was filed at the time.

In a statement, Trump teased a new slogan that shows he will still be moving his “Make America Gret Again” movement forward and is going with the phrase “Save America.”
