Trump would speak/spoke/was speaking Hi, there I am trying to translate a text and I would like to know if I should use "would", the simple past or even the past progressive in this sentence: "As early as in 2014, Trump would already speak out against a few immigration policies in a confrontational tone" or "As early as in 2014, Trump already spoke out against a few immigration policies in a confrontational tone" or even "As early as in 2014, Trump was already speaking out against a few immigration policies in a confrontational tone"? Thank you

If he’s still doing it, then sentence 3 conveys the thought best.

it is made harder by the fact that Trump struggles to speak English
