Bibles and guns: it's like Glastonbury for conservatives

Instead, he fed off the friendly crowd of ultra-conservative supporters who ate up Trump's attacks on immigrants, Democrats and even what appeared to be a dig at Sen.

Democrats "will take away those massive tax cuts and they will take away your Second Amendment", Trump said.

It's not always easy to hide bald spots, especially when you're a president, considering one of your duties is to climb the windy stairs to Air Force One with cameras watching every step.

The president listed his accomplishments in his first year: "We passed the biggest tax cuts in the history of our country", he said.

He also added that "nobody loves the second amendment as much as I do" and that he has "great friends" in the National Rifle Association. "And you know what, we can't let that happen", Trump said, telling the crowd that "you can't get complacent".

"I think now we've proved I'm a conservative", he said. We're hanging in. We're hanging in there, right?

VENEZUELA: Government Launches Pre-sale Of Petro, Its Crypto-currency
Moreover, like any other token sale, the government has released details of the areas in which it intends to use the funds. For those who are unaware, this Latin American country actually has the world's largest proven oil reserves.

"I try like hell to hide that bald spot folks, folks, I work hard at it", he said, looking at his image projected onto a jumbotron.

Trump in the election campaign-style speech ticked off his accomplishments over the a year ago, including passing tax cuts, moving the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem and withdrawing from the Paris climate accords, Fox News reported. He, of course, discussed his plan to build a "great wall" along the border with Mexico while the crowd chanted,"Build that wall!" The president admitted he was about to throw out most of his prepared remarks, and that's exactly what he did - barely mentioning what was supposed to be a major part of the speech, new sanctions on North Korea. She asks the snake why it bit her, and the snake responds, "You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in".

Trump is keenly aware of the polls that show Democrats ahead in generic congressional ballots, and knowing a Democratic wave in the Senate and House of Representatives would derail his agenda for the two remaining years, he's going back to the playbook that worked so unexpectedly once before.

He also read a fable about a snake tricking a woman into nursing him back to health so he can kill her-a parable about the need for tougher immigration laws that Trump regularly read at campaign rallies.

CPAC, hosted by the American Conservative Union, is held annually and is a favorite gathering for conservative elected officials. "We don't want them in our schools", he said.

Trump encouraged Republicans to stay active. "I don't want to get into that battle".
