President Trump took the stage at CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Conference) on Friday, and gave an energetic speech in which he emphasized his America-first stance on international relations and promised a historic buildup of America’s military strength.
The president opened his speech by addressing his position on the American media, reiterating a recent Twitter post in which he accused major news outlets of being the “enemy of the American people,” before emphasizing that “nobody loves” the first amendment “better than me.”
The president’s speech was well-received by the crowd at CPAC as he transitioned his remarks away from the media and toward national defense. “I will never ever, ever apologize for protecting the safety and security of the American people,” Trump said, adding that he’s willing to accept the “bad press” he’ll receive for doing so.
He addressed terrorist attacks that have occurred overseas, saying, “We have to be smart, folks. We can’t let it happen to us. We are going to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.”
