Trump Smacks Back Against Media Attacks on CPAC Speech


Business magnate Donald Trump told Breitbart News on Friday that he was excited to be a part of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this year and that the American Conservative Union (ACU), which hosts the event, was just as happy to have him aboard.

Left-wing outlets and even many in the mainstream press have lambasted Trump for his speech, despite its success. Among other hit pieces written on Trump throughout the media, the Christian Science Monitor asked in a headline if Trump was a “Democratic secret agent.”

But he is now setting the record straight with Breitbart News.

“I have been invited to headline CPAC conferences throughout 2011 and 2012,” Trump said. “This conference is very important, especially at this moment with the 2014 and 2016 elections fast approaching. I also consider Chairman Al Cardenas a good friend. I am glad that I was able to make room in my schedule for today’s address.”
