Trump falsely claims lines 'go back 6 blocks' for CPAC speech

Source: The Hill

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD. — President Trump falsely claimed during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday that lines to get in stretched back “six blocks.”

It was a statement at odds with the quiet scene outside the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center where CPAC is taking place.

There were no lines getting into the Gaylord within the hour before Trump began speaking Friday morning.

"There are lines that go back six blocks. I tell you that because you won’t read about it," Trump said during his address.


He doubled down on calling the media "the enemy of the people," to cheers from the crowd.

Trump: We spent $6T in Middle East and didn't even get a 'tiny oil well'

Source: The Hill

President Trump on Thursday doubled down on his comments the U.S. should have taken oil from the Middle East during its wars there.

“We’ve spent $6 trillion … in the Middle East,” Trump said during a meeting with airline executives at the White House. “We’ve got nothing. We’ve got nothing. We never even kept a small, even a tiny oil well. Not one little oil well. I said, ‘Keep the oil.’”

The president argued the money would have been better spent on massive new infrastructure projects in the U.S.

“We have an obsolete plane system, we have obsolete airports, we have obsolete trains, we have bad roads,” he said. “We're gonna change all of that, folks. You're gonna be so happy with Trump. I think you already are.”
Trump for years has said the U.S. should have kept Iraq’s oil after overthrowing Saddam Hussein. But many legal experts say doing so could have violated international law.
