By Amy ChozickThe tea party has come roaring back, and it’s all thanks to Donald Trump.
The tea party is back.
The tea partiers have returned, in large part thanks to Trump.
As he has made clear in his stump speeches and interviews, the tea party isn’t just about Tea Party groups and candidates.
It’s about the Republican Party itself.
The Tea party has been around for years, and the movement that arose from that party has grown to become one of the most powerful and effective political forces in the country.
The tea parties have never had much of a political strategy, and they have never been very popular.
But Trump is proving that even the worst of the tea partier’s worst instincts have been for the best.
The Tea Party is the Republican party in reverse.
It’s the party that gave Donald Trump the nomination.
Its leaders are not very happy about that.
They’ve been making the case that Trump’s candidacy was all about pandering to a base that they believed was already tired of the establishment.
The movement is being led by people who are not necessarily Trump loyalists, but people who share his agenda of restoring economic opportunity, lowering taxes and slashing regulations.
In many ways, the Tea party is the antithesis of the Democratic Party, which has been working hard to turn itself into a populist, anti-establishment force.
And the Tea partiers are coming back, having finally found a way to work together after being separated from the party for decades.
They’re back in the race for the presidency.
The first major event of the Tea Partiers return to the national stage was the tea conference at the end of June, which drew more than 600 people from across the country and featured the likes of Ben Carson, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz.
The conference also attracted the likes, like Ben Carson , who have been a key part of the anti-Trump movement.
Tea Partiers were not the only people who turned up to the Tea Conference, though.
There were thousands of people from other organizations and individuals, including the Democratic National Committee and the AFL-CIO, who attended the event, too.
That’s not to say the teapartiers were absent from the national spotlight.
During the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, the former president, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich were all there to promote their agenda, including in-person rallies, a panel discussion on immigration reform and a rally to support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the general election.
Some of the biggest Tea Party leaders, like Ron Paul, were also there to support the candidates they support.
Paul, who has been a vocal critic of the Affordable Care Act, also attended the conference.
And while the Teapartiers did not dominate the convention, the events in the states where the candidates were speaking were.
While Paul was in the midst of a Senate campaign in Kentucky, former Texas governor Rick Perry, who is one of Trump’s most prominent backers, held a rally in the state.
Perry, whose campaign has suffered from infighting in recent months, said in a statement that he was “thrilled” to have “the support of Senator Paul and Congressman Ryan for a second chance at the presidency.”
That didn’t stop him from criticizing the president’s health care proposal.
“We’re going to keep fighting to keep this promise,” he said.
“We need to keep our promises, but we have to do it in a way that is affordable, but not burdensome, but also is fair to everybody.”
The conference in June also featured several prominent Tea Party figures who were not necessarily the most popular.
Former Speaker of the House John Boehner, who famously voted against the Affordable Health Care Act and whose son, Matt, was the only person in the room to vote for Trump in the 2016 election, attended the meeting.
Boehner is now the longest-serving speaker of the house, and has a reputation for his extreme conservatism.
But at the conference, he spoke out against the plan.
He told the conference that it would result in more than 100 million people losing health insurance, and that Trump was “the best hope we have” to prevent that.
“I think he has the best chance to defeat [Obamacare] because we have the most conservative, most conservative Republican,” he told the audience.
“If you want a chance to do that, if you want to be a part of a winning strategy, we need you here.”
Boehner was not the first Tea Party figure to attend the conference in July.
Former Arkansas Gov.
Mike Huckabee attended, too, and he has been the most vocal opponent of the ACA.
He has been vocal about how he believes the health care bill was a disastrous piece of legislation and is the only one of them who has endorsed Trump
