Donald Trump's outsider candidacy rattled the conservative movement.

While some of the more conservative Republicans in Congress also showed up on that list, the notably absent include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and tea party favorite Sen.

-He lead crowd in chants of "Lock her up!" against Hillary Clinton.

"Who was that? I don't know", Trump said. "It doesn't look bad".

"I'm here because I stand with President Trump". Departing the White House for CPAC, Trump told reporters that "when it came time to get in there and do something", Florida deputy Scot Peterson "didn't have the courage or something happened". "He was very obnoxious".

"We've confirmed a record number ... of circuit court judges, and we're going to be putting in a lot more", Trump said, adding that the administration also appointed conservative Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Trump basked in an electoral victory that is now almost 16-months old, pointedly mocking Clinton for ignoring Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, three states he won after decades of GOP defeats. He just used that for campaigning.' ...

During the 2016 presidential election campaign, then-candidate Trump allowed a woman tug the hair on top of his head to prove it is real.

He added, "Given these indictments , President Trump should implement the sanctions that Congress has passed immediately". The comments also reflected a decided shift from the Trump White House regarding Russia's possible role.

Many conservatives are warning that if the president thinks his job is hard now, he is in store for a rude awakening if Democrats take control of either chamber and suddenly have chairmanships and subpoena powers.

Talking about former Broward County Sheriff's Office Deputy Scot Peterson, who was on campus at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland during the shooting, but did not go inside while it was happening, Trump suggested Peterson was a "coward". So we have the tax reform act, and that was it.

Here are some of the wilder moments from Trump's remarks, which lasted well over an hour. Trump has called for banning bump stocks, a device that can be attached to a semi-automatic rifle to speed up its firing rate.

"People get complacent. It is a natural instinct".

But Trump spent a great deal of time on Friday promoting his call to arm teachers and administrators in American schools, something he and the NRA agree upon.

Later Friday, President Trump is scheduled to hold a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. He wouldn't have gone there.

CPAC is a gun-free zone.

Rather than having armed guards stationed around schools, Trump said teachers, coaches and other staff who are adept with a gun are the best form of protection because they love their students.

"Remember when I first started running - I started running and people said are you sure he's a conservative. You do a concealed carry permit", he said. "And the teacher would have shot the hell out of him before he knew what happened".
