President Donald Trump has attended the first CPAC conference to have welcomed him unashamedly, as the Republican’s first president in eight years, burying a troubled past with the Conservative organisation.

Previous Trump visits here were greeted with hostility. Not this one. He gave the crowd what it wanted to hear.

“We defended other nations borders, while leaving ours wide open, anybody can come in…We’re going to build the wall, don’t worry about it. We’re going to build the wall.
In fact, it’s going to start soon, way ahead of schedule,” he promised.

Essentially the speech was the same he has been delivering from the campaign trail and since he took tenancy of the White House, but he told delegates the movement he had created remained to be defined, and that they had a huge role in this if the goal of making America great again was to be achieved.

“We’ll be getting people off welfare and into jobs, and you’ll love it”, he promised.
