SUNRISE, Fla. — Former President Donald Trump was the headliner of Saturday's "American Freedom Tour" stop in South Florida, hinting at another run at the White House in 2024.

"You had a president that always put America first," Trump said during his speech at the daylong conservative event at FLA Live Arena in Sunrise. "I will be back and we will be better and stronger than ever before."

In addition to the 45th U.S. president, other guest speakers included his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., his fiancée, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and conservative radio host Dan Bongino.

Trump Jr. encouraged those in attendance to get involved in their local elections and shared his disdain for Democrats holding political offices.

"Don't let these people ever have power again," he said.

Trump has been making the rounds at political fundraisers and other Florida events since leaving the White House, most recently attending last month's Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando.

The price tag to attend the event ranged from $9 for overflow seating to $6,999 for limited seating in front of the stage.
