Pres. Trump at CPAC: Recommits to Protecting Campus Free Speech in Campaign Speech Preview

On Saturday, President Donald Trump delivered a rousing speech to CPAC at their annual conference just outside of Washington, D.C. His speech lasted for more than 2 hours, the longest of his presidency thus far.

One especially memorable moment was when President Trump called up Hayden Williams, who was attacked on the campus of the University of California: Berkeley while manning a conservative leadership recruitment table in mid-February. RNLA Vice President for Communications Harmeet Dhillon is currently representing Hayden in this matter.

President Trump said of Harmeet Dhillon to Hayden Williams and the audience: “You’ve got yourself a great lawyer…

President Trump continued by stating a renewed effort to protect free speech on college campuses:

Ladies and gentlemen, he took a hard punch in the face for all of us. [] He took a punch for all of us. And we can never allow that to happen…. Today, I'm proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech, if they want federal research dollars.

If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they've got to allow people like Hayden and many other great young people, and old people, to speak. Free speech. And if they don't, it will be very costly.

The crowd roared with excitement over President Trump’s continued commitment to protect the First Amendment on college campuses.

With his speech this weekend, President Trump offered a glimpse of the 2020 Campaign at CPAC. His personable, engaging, enthralling speech looks like a winning formula for 2020.
