opponents in a key speech to conservatives trump is under mounting pressure on both domestic and foreign policy after this week's failed north korea summit and the explosive allegations made by his former lawyer in congress today the u.s. president addressed the conservative political action conference its third successive speech to the gathering which for decades has played host to republican leaders at the event criticize democratic congressional investigations into his affairs. but they fight so hard of theirs which phony deal that they put together this phony think that now looks like it's dying so they don't have anything with russia there's no collusion so now they go and morph into let's inspect every deal he's ever done we're going to go into his finances we're going to jackies deals we're going to check these people. for more let's bring in
washington correspondent all over salad all over quite an unusual address there by the president what else did he say in his two hours speech. well that was his first appearance after his failed summit with north koreans kim jong un and also after his formal lawyer and fix sort of michael cohen testified at congress so all eyes were on the u.s. president here today to see how he tackles his situation how he deals with the pressure is he's currently under that is mounting on him right now and interesting lee he did not go about talking about michael cohen or north korea at first and then went straight off of his script really just as he did in the two thousand and sixteen election campaign and started attacking his political opponents he ridiculed the democrats made fun of the. congressional committees
that are currently investigating against him and that was exactly celebrated in fact by cheering crowds that was all fired up and cheered for their president really and those were the pictures donald trump needed at this point. to go back into the pull into the offensive really after suffering a major setbacks year in recent days and weeks he was of course on home turf at this gathering but is he still have the full support of conservatives. he was and you could see that of course as well but when it comes to assessing him then the republican narrative is of course a different one then he is mostly evaluated based upon what he achieved as president and that he fulfilled many of his promises that he made during the two thousand and sixteen election campaign and those are renegotiating trade agreements
with a can of and mexico for instance the fuel you fuel to the american economy he brought back life to the steel industry here in the united states and also aspects that are by far more important for his supporters than foreign policy issues for instance meanwhile the democrats are accelerating their investigation into trump's affairs following that explosive testimony from his former lawyer michael cohen how much pressure is the president now under. so the testimony of michael cohen was above all a very embarrassing moment for the u.s. president cohen called him a. racist and he delivered some evidence for that as well but this was evidence that we have heard and seen before so there was not a lot new coming out of these testimonies that that was the public part of the testimonies and there were going on and will go on behind closed doors next week we
don't know exactly what is being said behind these closed doors what we're waiting for right now is still the result of the mall investigation and the big overarching question here will be whether or not robert small of the special counsel will be able to deliver evidence that the u.s. president donald trump colluded with russian government officials whether or not this will be the case doesn't really matter for the next weeks for him this will be certainly a very difficult phase for him as pressure continues to mount on him to delay a correspondent all over salad in washington d.c. thank you. while downtrend was addressing conservatives democratic senator bernie sanders officially kicked off a second presidential campaign in new york city he called on americans from all walks of life to join his fight for a political revolution and pledged to create an economy and government that works for all people sanders said his campaign was built to defeat donald trump called
