On the CPAC stage in Orlando, Florida Unanue said, “It’s just an honor to be here. But my biggest honor today is gonna be that – I think we’re gonna be on the same stage – as, in my opinion, the real, the legitimate, and the still actual president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.”

Since the 2020 presidential election, Unanue has been openly skeptical of the results and spread several conspiracy theories about the election.
