(CNSNews.com) – You won’t see the “fake news” reporting on the movement of young conservatives like those gathered at the Turning Point USA’s Teen Action Summit, President Donald Trump said Tuesday in a speech to the group in the nation’s capital.
The president told the crowd of “young leaders” that they are “part of a movement unlike anything in the history of the nation.”
“There's never been anything like this. The fake news doesn't even talk about it. When I say it, they don't correct me. They don't say oh, Pinocchio. They can't, because it's true. It's true. They can find fault with anything, but they never talk about that,” Trump said.
The president began his speech saying he was “excited to be here today with thousands of proud young American patriots.”
“You are the future,” he said.
“What a group. They don't realize there is more of you than there is of them. They just haven't figured that out yet. They will understand. They'll figure it out. They are still trying to figure out what the hell happened. How did this happen? You've come to our nation's capital from cities and towns across America,” Trump said.
“You've given up a big part of your summer, which many young people are not willing to do, and we understand that too, but what you're doing is fun, and it's important, so important. You've paved your own way to get here, and in some cases, it wasn't easy, and you've done it for all of us. You've done it for one simple reason. You are loyal to our nation. You are devoted to your fellow citizens, and you will always put America first,” he said to cheers and applause from the audience.
“There have been some pretty good movements where they won New Hampshire. A state someplace, but they didn't win the whole ball game. You can see it. We could feel it. It's a movement about reclaiming your future, rebuilding your country, renewing the values that are the true source of American greatness. We lost those values. We are getting them back rapidly,” the president said.
