NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — “Conservatism” will be supplanted by “Trumpism” when the president speaks Friday at the annual gathering of right-wing activists known as CPAC — the Conservative Political Action Conference — Trump’s adviser Kellyanne Conway predicted Thursday. “This will be TPAC when he’s here, no doubt,” Conway quipped.

America has always been the land of red, white and blue — but now those colors come with a Russian twist. On Friday, some attendees at CPAC, the annual Conservative Political Action conference, waved tiny flags that appear to be exactly copies of the Russian flag, however these have the word "Trump" emblazoned on them.  CPAC staff quickly went around and confiscated those flags so please, stop worrying America, there's clearly no pattern. Go home and find those leakers!

In 2015, just 13 percent approved of what he's going. In 2017, that number climbed to 22 percent. Trump has come under fire in recent weeks after a bombshell report from the New York Times alleged that the President's aides had frequent contact with Russian intelligence officials throughout his campaign. Nothing to see here folks. Move right along. BONUS: Here's a clip of Kellyanne Conway's previous (and mercifully brief) career in stand-up comedy

By Emily Stephenson and Steve Holland NATIONAL HARBOR, Md./WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said he would make a massive budget request for one of the "greatest military buildups in American history" on Friday in a feisty, campaign-style speech extolling robust nationalism to eager conservative activists. Trump used remarks to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an organization that gave him one of his first platforms in his improbable journey to the U.S. presidency, to defend his unabashed "America first" policies. Ahead of a nationally televised speech to Congress on Tuesday, Trump outlined plans for strengthening the U.S. military, already the world's most powerful fighting force, and other initiatives such as tax reform and regulatory rollback.

Multiple news outlets were excluded from a White House gaggle with press secretary Sean Spicer Friday afternoon, according to reporters present, sparking criticism from the White House Correspondents' Association and other observers. The move comes amid President Donald Trump's ongoing battle with many news organizations, which he has characterized as "fake news" and the "enemy of the American People," an assertion which he doubled down on today during the Conservative Political Action Conference. The gaggle, which took place in Spicer's office, was being held in lieu of a traditional briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room, which seats 49 reporters but is often filled with others who line the sides and back of the room. The outlets invited to join Spicer today included the Washington Times, One America News Network and Breitbart News, as well as television networks including ABC, CBS, Fox News and NBC, Reuters, the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, among others.
