Trump Defends Second Amendment At CPAC And Warns of Dems Taking Office

Share
Trump's average approval across his entire time in office is three points Obama's but he's in front now – judging from the current snapshot in time

But at the start of his upbeat, off the cusp speech - in which he touted his administration as having "the most successful first year in the history of the presidency" - Trump displayed a shocking moment of humility: he admitted to desperately trying to hide his bald spot! "Boy, wouldn't I want to see that man speak?"

Donald Trump's candidacy jumbled the conservative movement.

Trump says in a joint news conference with Australia's prime minister that making schools a "gun-free environment" doesn't increase safety.

And though he seemed eager to proclaim the massive tax cuts approved late a year ago, when Trump conducted an informal poll of the audience about which issue mattered more - the tax issue or protecting gun rights - the clear victor was guns.

Trump said that despite his pledges to take some action on gun control from earlier in the week, he is still a firm supporter of the right to bear arms.

He's also expected to call upon Congress to build his long-promised wall along the US and Mexican border "to stop risky drugs and criminals".

But his balding problem is a public matter now that White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson revealed last month that Trump takes the drug Propecia for male-pattern hair loss. He reiterated his push for "gun-adept teachers and coaches" to be able to carry concealed firearms.

"Highly trained teachers would also serve as a deterrent to the cowards that do this", Trump tweeted on Thursday morning.

For as much time as is spent trying to figure out what's inside President Trump's head, what's on top of it has attracted less significant scrutiny but a fair bit of curiosity. The crowd chanted, "lock her up", a common refrain at Trump campaign rallies.

'Black Panther' Shatters Box Office Records with $218 Million Debut
Late last month, Disney/Marvel and other analysts were projecting a $100 to $120 million opening for " Black Panther ". Twitter users also noted that the man in the Black Panther costume didn't even have a ticket for that showing.

At one point, he looked at the large video screens that flanked him and said, "What a great picture that is".

In the same speech, Trump charged that Democrats "have totally abandoned DACA" - President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy that granted legal status to some undocumented immigrants who entered America as minors through no fault of their own. The Second Amendment got the most cheers. Absent was the campaign-trail call and response that Mexico would pay for the wall - because that country has insisted it will not, and Trump is now seeking congressional funds to build it.

"I would rather have somebody that loves their students and wants to protect their students than somebody standing outside that doesn't know anybody and doesn't know the students and frankly - for whatever reason - decided not to go in, even though he heard lots of shots being fired inside".

LaPierre is a fixture at the Conservative Political Action Conference held every year just outside Washington.

Trump needs this core group, as his support among adults and voters nationally stood at 37 percent last week, according to the Gallup tracking poll and the Quinnipiac Poll.

President Trump also used the speech to renew his call for Congress to pass a bill funding a wall along the U-S/Mexico border.

A year later, nearly all the major speakers come from Trump's administration and Cabinet or are top allies, with no vocal detractors on the lineup.

He says, "I think now we've proved I'm a conservative". She wore a Trump hat and scarf, and brought a small Trump figurine for posing for photos with conservative media personalities.
