Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle confirmed that President Trump’s performance at the Conservative Political Action Conference was a hit with his Republican base.
“Trump’s 2-hour CPAC speech was marathon of unrehearsed humor and a few salty words. He knocked it way out of the park,” Guilfoyle tweeted on Saturday.
Trump’s live audience seemed to agree, responding with cheers and a standing ovation to the President’s enthusiastic performance, which included hugging the U.S. flag onstage and firing expletives at special counsel Robert Mueller.
The main highlight was when Trump revealed his plan to sign an executive order protecting free speech on college campuses.
“Today I’m proud to announce that I will very soon sign an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars,” he said.
Trump also defended his national emergency declaration for border wall funding, arguing that Democrats will abuse the emergency declaration power regardless of whether he uses it for his own purposes.
