“I really believe that,” said Trump in his speech to conservative CPAC party on Friday at Washington. “In the history of the presidency, no president has abolished as many regulations in his entire term as I did in the first year,” he said.
Trump used his appearance to a mostly freehand tour through a wide mix of topics. Once again he attacked his predecessor Barack Obama, as did the media and Democrat Hillary Clinton. As in a campaign appearance, Trump grappled issues such as a wall in Mexico, coal mining, the Iran deal, faith or crime in a kind of greatest hits presentation.
In addition, the President again presented in full length the poem “The Serpent”. During the election campaign, he had often quoted it as warning against Syrian refugees.
Trump went into so many issues that he only mentioned at the very end of his more than 75 minutes in one sentence the already announced sanctions against North Korea. They are the “greatest of all times”.
Casually, Trump said that the Republican elections due in November are likely to be repatriated. When parts of the Senate and the entire House of Representatives are elected, the governing party loses most of the time. “No one is able to explain that, it just happens,” said Trump.
The CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) is a tight conservative, right-wing association. She meets once a year.
