Trump: 'Our Victory Was a Win for Conservative Values'

President Donald Trump returned to many of his campaign promises, and hinted at some new action the White House will soon take, in a speech to thousands of conservatives gathered Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference. "Our victory was a win for conservative values," Trump said, pledging to support members of law enforcement, repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and build a wall "soon, way ahead of schedule." The call-back to the campaign trail included some popular phrases — and a jab at Hillary Clinton that elicited chants of "lock her up!" Trump reiterated his assurance that he will "put American first," saying there is no global flag, so that terrorism doesn't strike in the U.S. And in looking forward, Trump vowed that would "never apologize" for protecting the safety of American people and promised "brand new action" in the coming days to protect the nation.
