President Trump Addresses Conservative Conference - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

A year after skipping the event for lack of support, writing that he "looks forward to returning next year, as President of the United States," President Trump is due to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this morning.

Trump's statement last year...

The Donald J. Trump for President Campaign has just announced it will be in Wichita, Kansas for a major rally on Saturday, prior to the Caucus. Mr. Trump will also be speaking at the Kansas Caucus and then departing for Orlando, Florida to speak to a crowd of approximately 20,000 people or more. Because of this, he will not be able to speak at CPAC, as he has done for many consecutive years. Mr. Trump would like to thank Matt Schlapp and all of the executives at CPAC and looks forward to returning to next year, hopefully as President of the United States.

And so here he is, and we suspect he will have a few barbed words for this room of conservatives before he is done speaking.

As The Hill reports, Trump’s administration has taken center stage at this year’s CPAC, with Vice President Mike Pence, chief of staff Reince Priebus and senior counselor Stephen Bannon all speaking Thursday at the event.

Also scheduled to speak Friday at CPAC are British politician and Brexit leader Nigel Farage, National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre, former U.N. ambassador John Bolton and more.

Trump is due to speak at 1020ET...

If any Black Bloc commies show up, execute them on the spot. Is he a fascist or merely engaging in self-preservation is a question for them to answer.

He's having an especially good comb-over day...

barndoor's picture

Donnie at his happiest - talking about himself and how much people like him.

TeamDepends's picture

And we DO like him, for the simple fact that he is neither Obongodinga nor Shrillary.

barndoor's picture

So much substance and policy.  He never wastes time on the trivial.  

TeamDepends's picture

Someone left the barn door open.

barndoor's picture

And now he is on to the size of the assembled crowd, one of his most favoured topics.  I'm sure the umemployed in the rust belt really appreciate this laser-focus on this critical issue.

barndoor's picture

Sounds like he's itching to start a war so that he can finally put one in the win column...

TeamDepends's picture

He beat you, and beat you bigly in both the EC AND popular vote. Sorry snowflake, illegal and dead votes don't count.

barndoor's picture

He spends so much time talking about the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.  Someone must have told him the the replacement bill is hidden somewhere on the golf course at Mar-a-Lago.  

Otherwise, why wouldn't he be in DC working on a solution?  Ain't no legislators down in Florida, as far as I know.

crossroaddemon's picture

He has nothing to replace it with, and he knows that. You don't really think he's gonna trot out anything that's gonna leave like half the population uninsured, do you? Anymore than congress would pass it. The ACA ain't going nowhere until someone figures out a way to keep the poor insured without it. The real solution would be to attack costs, but if you think that's gonna happen... never mind. I can't.

I don't understand how liberals can find fault with what Trump wants to do.  He is saving America.  He is doing everything that needs to be done.  These things should NOT be controversial.  Every TRUE American should support his platform.

I just don't understand why any American, liberal, conservative or libertarian would oppose what Donald Trump stands for.  The guy is 100% for improving America and American's fortunes.

I just don't understand why anyone opposes him in America.  Unless these are people who Hate America, people who think communism is a valid system or people who want government to take care of them from birth to death.  Surely, these people are a small, small fraction of Americans.

No?

1. They are not americans.. JUST CROOKS. 99% of politicians regardless of party.

2. Is all about the $. Their cartel will dissapear if not needed. Therefore when someone FIXES THINGS, politicians become redundant.

Especially the ones in opposition.  If Trump makes good on 25% of his promises, no democrat party for next 2 decades.

Some people are just communist fucksticks and need to be thrown out of helicopters. 

jus_lite_reading's picture

I do believe it may come to this...

TeamDepends's picture

And you can be certain a majority of their kin would approve.

TheLastTrump's picture

Downvoted because there is NO ONE that deserves to be thrown out of a helicopter.

 

Imprisoned, sure. Executed in a humane manner for crimes adjudicated in a court of law? Sure.

i'm liberal and when he says buy american hire american i think it's the sort of economic populism that could save this economy so i appreciate that.

his attacks on the press, dictator like attitude, ties to russia, rambling nonsense, disregard for the future of the planet, unwillingness to realize that long term employment is fucked bc of automation, willingness to make stupid military decisions, constant vacationing, lying openly, willingness to trample on the rights of ordinary citizens, desire for a police state, are all reasons i fucking hate the guy.

TheLastTrump's picture

All of these are lies or fudged by the media into something different then what they were intended.

You are CAPTURED by the LYING BLOODSTAINED MEDIA and are a MAJOR PART OF THE PROBLEM. Fuck you, you're a mentally simple liar.

you sound angry...i feel really sorry for you and anyone who knows you...i can smell how shitty your life is from here...you should probably just kill yourself man...really doubt anyone would miss your comments and i guarantee no one would miss you, if you actually know people. sorry man, just end it and hope to be reincarnated as a rhino or some bullshit like that.

crossroaddemon's picture

Essentially anything that is unlikable about Trump MUST be a media fabrication... is that what you're saying? Fucking LISTEN to yourself.

"I just don't understand why any American, liberal, conservative or libertarian would oppose what Donald Trump stands for.  The guy is 100% for improving America and American's fortunes."

 

Absolutely. The problem is that the leftist indoctrination through the schools & media have taught a great many Americans to be allegiant to THEM and not their COUNTRY.

 

The LYING MEDIA would be TOOTHLESS without irrational Democrats hanging on their every manufactured word.

I agree with you 100%.  But if what you say is true, then all this blather is 100% bullshit.  And the morons are lapping it up...

Watching him and cant stop laughing. Such a Clown.

I find it sad to watch a still-great nation begin to cirle the bowl...

Trump = Clown

Hillary = _____

How would you fill in that blank Petar?

There is no good in settling for the lesser evil.

TheLastTrump's picture

You did not think that through clearly, ie you're wrong. Think about it...less evil = less evil not more evil and less evil is good so....

FireBrander's picture

Settling for the Lessor Evil is better than denying the reality that one of these Evils was going to win.

Trump is the lessor Evil; anyone that can't see that has a D branded on their forehead.

I rather have a pilot who graduated bottom-of-the-class from flight school then the top-of-the-class from clown school. 

Francis Marx's picture

I guess that means all successful people are clowns in your book.

I would conclude then all losers are successful in your mind.

Hmmm... don't quite your day job if you have one.

worbsid's picture

Just a little nit picking:  First I did this THEN I did that.  Then is a point of time.  I would rather have this THAN that.  Than is a selector word.  What you said above used the wrong word 'then' in stead of 'than'.  Now we will see how you take this little bit of constructive criticism.

TheLastTrump's picture

You know, I do EXACTLY the same thing, as do MANY others.

 

I do appreciate you taking the time to relay that, I did not know that.

jus_lite_reading's picture

Jesus FUCKING CHRIST will you people just give it a rest already?!! SHUT THE FUCK UP about TRUMP! The man didn't become a BILLIONAIRE because he is stupid. I know he sometimes sounds like a moron, babbling on about nonsenesical banter and himself but his results speak for themselves. I believe he continues to use the 36 Strategems to perfection.

So either he is a complete moron, and shouldn't be a billionaire or the President or he is using the 3rd Stratagem and 21st rule of power and this is the only way to fight against the corrupt gloablists.

Even if I am wrong, we're fucked. Also considering the other choice, HILLARY ROTTEN CLINTON, I'll take my bets with Trump. End of discussion. Let me make this clearer -- if he does not succeed, you might as well start building your bunker and sighting your scopes because you can kiss your freedoms goodbye and say hello to the NWO.

Fucking A man, I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

 

Notice none of these stupid little leftist paid trolls ever really make much sense? It's just a bunch of little gadfly posts, many of which are pulled straight out of their ass and have no relationship to reality or logic.

 

Kind of scary that there's people so artfully dense walking around out there.

Obama is 1000 Times better speaker than Trump and also 1000x more "Presidential"...BUT...Obama lived his whole life sucking off the Government...accomplishing NOTHING of real value for the American economy.

Hard to look at and listen to Trump, but, and this remains to be seen, IF he can make REAL accomplishments that are of REAL value to the economy, then he'll be a 1000x better President than Obama.

Francis Marx's picture

You need to add more dashes so he can put Crooked Loser in there.

I tried to follow your convoluted bullshit but it''s not really possible because I'm sane and you're not.

 

Are you shitsticks seriously going to try to cast stones at the prez for PLAYING GOLF? That's your new Sorosian talking point?

 

 

lol they're fucking desperate to make anything stick

Evidence please? All I've seen is unsupported claims. Frequently by the highly credible people  snowflakes who shriek about "summary executions".

More money for the military!

Now, that's what I voted for!

/sarc

But still, the other choice was Hillary...so, I'll grin and bear this...

barndoor's picture

I totally hear you, but as hard as it is to say, she was still the better choice (in a lesser of two evils kind of way).  I would rather have the problems continue (or maybe get a little worse) for 4 years, then roll the dice with this sociopath.

TheLastTrump's picture

Sociopath? That's what Obama and Holder & Clinton are.

FireBrander's picture

OMG, no she was not the "lessor Evil"; The Clintons are PURE EVIL.

The Clinton Foundation existed to "help people"...the instant Hillary loses, they shut it down...WHY? The Foundation "helped people" before she lost, so why can't it after she lost?

Her son in law ran a Hedge Fund, then closed it after she lost? Why?

Hillary PURPOSELY DESTROYED LIBYA..Killed ~100,000 and left the nation in ruins...and then LAUGHED ABOUT IT! How would you react if Trump did that?

Listen to Louis Farrakhan...he nails Hillary and Libya...and Louis ain't no "Rightwingnutjob"...

Trump is "repealing ObamaCare" the SAME WAY Obama wrote it; he's leaving it in the hands of the Congress and checking in once in a while for a progress update.

Not kidding...that's is exactly how Obama handled the ACA...which is why it ended up being written by Corporate America and that "seat at the table" Obama promised the American people turned out to be the kids table down the hall.
