'I'm trying like hell to hide that bald spot', Trump says

Pence at CPAC

President Trump will reiterate his call Friday morning at the Conservative Political Action Conference for arming some teachers and school personnel in the wake of last week's shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school that killed 17 people.

Trump fired up the crowd throughout the speech, including early on when he referenced the right to bear arms.

At one point, Trump read The Snake, a poem he often read during the 2016 campaign which he used as a metaphor, saying immigrants are deadly snakes who will hurt you if you let them into the country.

USA president Donald Trump made a rare public comment on his enigmatic straw mane Friday, jokingly admitting that he suffers from male-pattern hair loss - a bald spot.

"They will take away your Second Amendment", he said of the Democrats.

Trump said that past efforts to address school safety and gun violence had faded and "nothing ever gets done".

"We really do have to strengthen up, really strengthen up, background checks", Trump said during his visit to the annual conference. "Right? Together, we are hanging in".

Danielle added that his speech got her excited, giving her "hope for the future, not the hope that the last 8 years implemented", as both Pence and President Trump are "implementing change for our future" forward, giving her hope for her family business that the Obama era did not give her. "I mean, (an) 18-year-old can go to the military so it would make me feel very good to know they were trained, equipped and had the wherewithal to use those weapons to protect the children", said Thomas.




"When it came time to get in there and do something, he didn't have the courage or something happened, but he certainly did a poor job".

The president even joked about his famously-sculpted coiffure, pointing to his image on the big screen and joking that he had taken care to hide a "bald spot".

Quickly discarding prepared remarks he deemed "sort of boring", Trump lit into Democrats and even some Republicans who he deemed insufficiently doctrinaire, and again called for teachers to be armed in schools as a response to the Florida shooting last week.

Moving away from the podium, the president turned his back to the crowd and brought his hands to his hair.

Instead, Trump began to relive his victory nearly 16 months ago over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, as the crowd broke into predictable chants of "Lock her up!" "Your president and I need you to show up".

Trump is expected to deliver some of his most predictable applause lines with his base - standing for the National Anthem and his promise to build a vaunted wall along the Mexican border. The crowd began to chant their now infamous, "Lock her up!"

The Associated Press marked this historic moment for the American presidency.

Trump said he would have had health reform, too, if it had not been for one senator, who gave a thumb's-down to the vote, referring to Sen.
