President Donald Trump energized conservative activists at CPAC on Friday, celebrating his accomplishments during his first year in office.
“Hey, we have got seven years to go, folks!” Trump told the audience who cheered wildly. The president arrived with a prepared speech but quickly abandoned the teleprompters in favor of a free-wheeling address.
Trump’s arrival thrilled the crowd who waited hours to get in for Trump’s speech. CPAC president Matt Schlapp said it was the biggest audience in history.
“I think now we’ve proved that I’m a conservative,” Trump said.
