One time Democrat, now self-proclaimed Republican Donald Trump, spoke at the yearly conservative gathering called CPAC and declared to the group that he is their president, “finally.”
President Trump declared himself among friends as he delivered a campaign-style speech Friday at an annual gathering of conservative activists and told the crowd that his movement represented the future of the Republican party.
“Now you finally have a president, finally,” Trump said, shortly after taking stage to Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.”
He later promised that “the forgotten men and women of America will be forgotten no more.”
With his appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor in Maryland, Trump became the first sitting president since Ronald Reagan to address the group during his first year in office.
