Former President Donald Trump is calling for the reinstatement of troops ousted from the military over vaccine mandates as well as new restrictions to keep teachers from exposing students to extreme race, gender and sexual ideologies.

 "Across the United States, we need to implement strict prohibitions on teaching inappropriate racial, sexual, and political material to America's children in any form," Trump declared in a speech Saturday night in Florida to young conservatives at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit.
 
Trump also said that troops ousted from the military services for refusing to be vaccinated should be restored with back pay.
 
The Pentagon should "rehire every patriot who was shamefully fired from the military with an apology,” he said. 

The 45th president sounded like a candidate ready to make a third run for the White House in 2024, speaking to the group just a day after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis also addressed the convention. 

“We’re going to take back our liberty. We’re going to take back our destiny. We’re going to take back, very soon, our country,” Trump said to cheers.
 
“If I announced I was not going to run for office, the persecution of Donald Trump would immediately stop,” he added. “But that’s what they want me to do. And you know what? There’s no chance I do that.”
 
Trump also implored attendees to fight the culture wars by imposing embargoes on  corporations that lean too far left.
 
"The radical left attacks those corporations by putting boycotts on them, and for some reason, Republicans and the right they don't do that," he said. "The only way to stop this extremism and get radical politics out of corporate boardrooms and human resource departments is if we do to the left exactly what the left does to us."
