Trump rouses U.S. conservatives with prediction of 'a big 2020 win'

Trump hugs the US flag as he arrives to speak at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference

In his remarks at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, which stretched beyond two hours, Trump also mocked the "Green New Deal" promoted by liberals to address climate change, disparaged former Attorney General Jeff Sessions with a faux Southern accent, and defended his move to declare a national emergency to secure money for his U.S. -Mexico border wall that was denied by Congress.

Trump let loose against House Democrats, who are broadening their investigations of him, predicted he would win re-election by a greater margin than his 2016 victory, taunted his potential White House challengers and sounded themes that are staples of his rallies.

"All of the sudden they're trying to take you out with bullshit", Trump said, in reference to Mueller's probe.

One person the United States president didn't mention in his two-hour CPAC speech was his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who testified before several congressional committees this week where he called Trump a "con man" and "racist".

Cases now partially or fully in the hands of prosecutors outside of Mueller's team include those involving President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen and longtime Trump ally Roger Stone.

Trump's comments were based off documents circulated by the office of freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), since deleted, that said the Green New Deal "sets a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, at the end of this 10-year plan because we aren't sure that we will be able to fully get rid of, for example, emissions from cows or air travel before then".

Let me help here: Mueller was authorized to investigate a hostile foreign power's massive and deliberate subversion of US democracy, which it undertook to get Trump elected president.

Mr Trump has frequently called the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt".

Pro-Left Trump is violating the emoluments clause of Constitution, Tlaib says.

The other argument Trump's allies are making is essentially that no congressional investigations of any kind directed at the president are legitimate.

Cohen has been sentenced to prison for three years after pleading guilty to financial crimes and to lying to Congress that Trump's Russian business overtures ended in January 2016 at the outset of the presidential campaign.

"But we see it totally different than Republicans", she said.

The biggest applause line came when he promised America "will never be a socialist country", echoing a speech he gave to the Venezualan American community in Miami, Florida, on February 18.

Michael Cohen's testimony on Capitol Hill last week is still irking President Donald Trump.

He also said Trump demanding that a security clearance be granted to son-in-law Jared Kushner over the objections of intelligence officials, as the New York Times reported last week, was an abuse of power.

"I think it's really something that they should promote".

"That is something that we will have to await Bob Mueller's report and the underlying evidence to determine".

Bartender Mary Schlough, 53, a Democrat who does not like Trump, said she believed most Democrats also wanted the report done with.

It was his first public appearance since coming home empty-handed, and to brickbats from all sides, from a nuclear-disarmament summit with North Korea's reclusive leader Kim Jong Un. "If we went through every person who had this authority before, I'll guarantee you other people had concerns raised with them".

Trump told the CPAC crowd, meeting at National Harbor, Md., that he planned to sign the order "very soon", but did not provide specifics or say whether a draft has already been prepared.

In his public testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cohen called the president a "con man" and a "cheat" and gave Democrats several new leads for inquiry.
