In Texas, Donald Trump delivered everything a right-wing heart desires: He agitated against Joe Biden and the allegedly stolen election victory, raged against migrants - and identified inflation, high energy costs and a lack of freedom of expression as reasons for America being a "nation in decline".

In particular, however, he worked on what he calls "gender ideology".

The struggle of America's conservatives, it seems, is increasingly becoming a struggle against trans and LGBTQI rights and left-wing "wokeness".

"You can't teach the Bible, but you can teach children that America is evil and that men can get pregnant," Trump said in Dallas.

The crowd went wild.

He's still their president.

America's conservatives are divided

But the picture among Republicans is not that clear.

The relentless investigation into Trump's influence on the storming of the Capitol has eroded support on the right.

Some influential politicians such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley, Trump's former UN ambassador, did not even travel to the meeting in Texas.

The event also showed how divided America's conservatives are.

Trump again left open whether he would compete again in 2024.

The big question will be: Will the Republican Party follow him?
