PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Former President Donald Trump went off script during a closed-door speech to Republican donors, with former Vice President Mike Pence and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell among his targets.

Trump took them on during an address Saturday night at his resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

His speech came as Republican officials are trying to play down an internal feud over his role in the party, his commitment to GOP fundraising and his plans for 2024.

While Trump’s advisers initially said he planned to emphasize party unity, he rarely sticks to script.
