Conservative leader praises Trump for keeping his promise

Trump circle with fingersA conservative activist is commending President Donald Trump for recently keeping another one of his promises to the conservative Americans who elected him into office.

Last year, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump did not attend the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), citing scheduling conflicts.

Insiders contended that the Trump campaign was concerned about the reception he would receive. There were threats of protests and mass walkouts.

Much of the mainstream media insisted that skipping the conservative event would kill his chances in the GOP primary.

CPAC blasted Trump, saying that it was "very disappointed," adding that his snub "sends a clear message to conservatives."

But in response, the Trump campaign defended his decision not to attend.

"Mr. Trump … looks forward to returning to CPAC next year, hopefully as President of the United States," a statement from the Republican’s camp read.

Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families maintains that the newly sworn-in president kept that promise.

In fact, Trump was more than warmly welcomed at CPAC this year. Moreover, the conservative event’s straw poll proves it, and Bauer illustrated that the commander-in-chief masterfully addressed many topics that are on the hearts of most conservatives.

"He outlined very clearly pro-American, pro-patriotism, pro-national security, pro-law enforcement ideas and values that overwhelmingly the American people agree with."

Bauer also asserts that Trump's agenda is going to continue to anger and frustrate the Left.  

"When you hear the President of the United States talking about securing our borders, respecting our flag, that U.S. citizens come first – whenever there's a question about that, [the Left will get angry],” Bauer continued. “Just going down the list, if he can just keep the focus on these issues, I think at the end of the day we're going to see the political Left in this country marginalized and President Trump doing better and better with the passage of time."

Bauer was also impressed with Vice President Mike Pence's CPAC address outlining the Trump administration's effort to defend the sanctity of life, repeal and replace Obamacare, stand with Israel and grow the American economy.
