Donald Trump addressed the crown of conservatives at CPAC yesterday, an event attended by conservative icons and often times primary candidates as well, but this time he addresses the crowd of conservative’s as a Republican President of the United States.
The crowd was thrilled as Trump took the stage, and although some paid agitators sneaked in at the behest of Democrat operative Bob Creamer, the convention went on without issue.

Trump reinforced his ‘America First’ policies by saying, “I’m not representing the globe, I’m representing your country.”
“There is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency, or a global flag,” he said. “I’m not representing the globe. I’m representing your country”, Trump said to roaring applause.
The president also addressed the unrelenting media blitz of fake news, which has been unleashed towards him on a daily basis, by promising to fight back.
“A few days ago, I called the fake news the enemy of the people and they are, they are the enemy of the people. They have no sources, they just make them up when there are none. I saw one story recently where they said, “Nine people have confirmed…” – there are no nine people, I don’t believe there were one or two people, “nine people.” I said, give me a break, I know the people, I know who they talk to. There were no nine people. They say nine people. Somebody reads it and thinks nine people, they have nine sources, they make up sources. They are very dishonest people.”
Trump continued talking about the brutal state of the mainstream media and their stories including skewed reporting, often times using the terms “anonymous sources”, “official sources” or “unnamed sources” to justify their statements. The president also used the phrase “Clinton News Network” to describe CNN’s reporting, as they didn’t even attempt to hide their obvious favoritism towards Hillary during the election.
He also touched on the various network polls, nearly all of which shows Hillary winning the election by a fair margin, and all turned out to be shockingly wrong.
“And they’ll say, a certain — let’s not mention names, right? Shall we? [applause] Well, you have a lot of them. The Clinton News Network is one. Totally. Take a look. Honestly. Take a look at polls over the last three years. You think they would fire the pollster, right? After years of getting battered, but I — who knows, maybe they are just bad at polling or maybe they’re not legit, one or the other, look how inaccurate, look at CBS, look at ABC, also, look at NBC, take a look at some of the polls, so bad, so inaccurate, what that does, creates false narrative, like a narrative that is just like we’re not going to win…”

Once again Trump thrills the crowd while not backing down to the relentless assault from the bias media.
