President Donald Trump appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference (Cpac) on Friday morning and quickly made sure to brag about his time in office, while ripping the media. As expected, the president made sure to attack the press for nearly his entire speech.

Trump and CPAC

The Conservative Political Action Conference is an annual convention and gathering of conservatives, where over 100 organizations and groups attend. The conference is used as a way to unite conservatives and Republicans, and push ideas for the right-wing agenda moving forward.

On Friday, Donald Trump appeared at the event, and used his time to bash the media, reporters, journalists, and other alleged "Fake News" outlets. As reported by CBS News on February 24, Trump didn't hold back his thoughts on his feud with the press at CPAC.

"The dishonest media will say 'he never got a standing ovation,'" Donald Trump said as he came on stage to a cheering crowd. "The media didn't think we would win. The pundits didn't think we would win," Trump went on to say. "The consultants that suck up all that money, oh they suck it up.

They aren't good at politics, but they are really good at sucking up that money," the president said.

"They all underestimated the people.

Never underestimate the people," Donald Trump said of the media. "We are fighting the fake news. It's fake. Phony," Trump continued. Not stopping there, the president cited a recent comment he made about the media being the "enemy of the people" and attempted to clarify his remarks. "A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people.

They are. They have no sources. They just make it up," he said.

Trump on the media

"I'm only against the fake news media and the press. I'm against the people who make up sources," Donald Trump told the crowd at CPAC. Going further, the former host of "The Apprentice" called for the press to stop using anonymous sources in their reporting. "They shouldn't be allowed to use sources unless their name is being put out there," he said, before noting, "Let them say it to my face."

In closing out his attacks on the press at CPAC, Trump went on to claim that, despite his criticism of the media, he really loves the First Amendment.

"I love the First Amendment," Trump said, stating, "Nobody loves it more than me."
