This Saturday, President Trump took the stage at the 2019 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) by embracing the American flag as “God Bless the USA” played over the speakers.
The President was introduced by American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, who praised the Trump administration’s accomplishments and praised Trump for not acting like a politician.
As President Trump took the stage, he immediately approached the American flag and hugged it with a smile on his face.
The President then took a lap around the stage and grinned over the crowd before stepping up the microphone to begin his speech.
President Trump was confirmed to be speaking at the annual political conference in National Harbor, Maryland despite spending several days this week in Vietnam at a nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
He returned early from the summit after being unable to reach a deal regarding sanctions and denuclearization of North Korea.
Matt Schlapp complimented President Trump for still committing to speaking at the conference despite just recently returning to the United States after his international diplomatic trip.
