Even the most powerful man in the world needs an “attaboy” now and then.
And so it was on Friday in National Harbor, Maryland, when a crowd of like-minded conservatives greeted President Donald Trump as he took the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference, according to The Daily Caller.
During his speech, spontaneous cheers of “U.S.A.! U.S.A! ” broke out among the crowd, bringing a big smile to the face of a man with a heavy load on his shoulders these days. As the crowd continued to chant, Trump turned away from the podium momentarily before continuing his speech.

The president and CPAC have a long and excellent relationship. He spoke at the conference in 2011, long before his run for president, previewing his eventual campaign theme of “Make America Great Again,” according to CBS News.
Talking about jobs, Trump reviewed his success in authorizing the Keystone and Dakota pipelines and told the crowd that the projects would use only American steel. “We’re going to put our miners back to work,” he said.
Focusing on chief strategist Steve Bannon’s declared top three priorities of “national security and sovereignty,” “economic nationalism,” and “deconstruction of the administrative state,” Trump began with excoriation of the media and floated the controversial idea that the tradition of anonymous sources should be banned.
“They have no sources, they just make it up,” Trump said.
Trump also gave plenty of time to national security and his promise to destroy the Islamic State terror group, according to National Public Radio.
“As part of my pledge to restore safety for the American people, I have also directed the defense community to develop a plan to totally obliterate ISIS,” he said. “Working with our allies, we will eradicate this evil from the face of the Earth.”
Of course, Trump did not skip the issue of criminal illegal aliens.
“As we speak today, immigration officers are finding gang members, drug dealers and criminal aliens and throwing them the hell out,” he said.
Check, check, and check. The president is keeping his promises, and we’re glad that he is being recognized for it.
