Trump delivers a slashing speech that rouses the right

He told the USA-cheering audience that he plans to sign an executive order that requires colleges and universities "to support free speech if they want federal research dollars".

While the president has suggested that free speech is under threat on college campuses, a Vox report last August showed that it's not the crisis it's chalked up to be, and liberals have been targeted too.

The president spoke to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday for more than two hours, the single longest political address of his career.

"He took a punch for all of us", said Trump. "Instead we believe in free speech, including online and including on campus".

That probe will include talking to banks that have done business with Trump as well as "accountants, the chief financial officers for the Trump Organization and others who would have information about the Moscow Trump Tower deal", Schiff said.

President Donald Trump invited Hayden Williams, a field representative for the Leadership Institute who got punched on the Berkeley campus of the University of California, to speak with him on the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday.

The gauntlet of interviews with Mr Cohen launched what is expected to be months of investigations into Mr Trump and those connected to him.

Williams, who was recruiting for the right-wing student group Turning Point on Berkeley's main plaza on February 19, was accosted by two men who were upset with a sign referencing the harm of hate crime hoaxes in the wake of the Jussie Smollett case.

"I think the New Green Deal or whatever the hell they call it - the Green New Deal - I encourage it", Trump said mockingly as he wound up for a round of exaggeration.

The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election said Sunday that lawmakers have found "enormous evidence" of possible collusion between President Trump's orbit and Russians during that election.

The speech came at the end of a hard week for the president.

Trump also touched on various other topics, from Robert Mueller's investigation to America's recent economic successes, the border wall situation, and trade negotiations with China.

"I'm going to regret this". The move appeared to be a response to complaints by some university critics that institutions of higher education stifle right-wing viewpoints.

Williams says many conservative students face "discrimination, harassment or worse if they dare speak up on campus".

"There's no collusion, so now they go and morph into 'let's inspect every deal he's ever done, '" Trump said, also blasting the Russian Federation probe as "bull--". "But sue the college, the university, and maybe sue the state".
