President Trump appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday and the record setting crowd went wild.
Trump touched on a lot of important topics including how conservative speech is being oppressed by the left at colleges and universities which by the way receive billions of dollars from tax payers.
But that’s all about to change.
President Trump announced that he will be signing an executive order which will “require colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal funding.”
The President made the announcement after he brought Hayden Williams, the conservative activist attacked last month at University of California-Berkeley on stage to speak.
It really was a great moment.
“There’s a young gentleman, I turned on my television the other day and I saw somebody that was violently punched in the face, violently punched and I said that’s disgusting but a bully I would like to do a lot of things but, of course, we won’t ever say that, Donald Trump, it’s act, no, no, just for the media, I’m sure a lovely young man, he had a temper tantrum,” Trump sarcasticly told the cheering Conservative crowd.
“He took a punch for all of us,” Trump said of Williams. “And we could never allow that to happen. And here is, in closing with Hayden, here’ the good news. He’s going to be a wealthy young man.”
Fox News reports that Trump urged Williams to sue the man who assaulted him, but added, “he’s probably got nothing.”
The president drew cheers as he urged Williams to sue Berkeley as well.
Williams told Trump that students would continue to defend him so long as he defended them.
“These students do it because they have a love of our nation and freedom and, frankly, a love for you Mr. President,” Williams said.
Trump said to chants of “U.S.A, U.S.A.’ that the executive order would require colleges and universities to support free speech in exchange for federal research dollars.
“If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they’ve got to allow people like Hayden and many other great young people and old people to speak,” Trump said. “Free speech. If they don’t, it will be costly. That will be signed soon.”
Zachary Greenberg, 28, was arrested Friday on an arrest warrant accusing him of punching Williams several times in a a Feb. 19 attack.
Williams, 26, is campus recruiter for The Leadership Institute, a conservative group.

WOW! How great is that?
Trump Jr. weighed in on Twitter saying- “YUGE. So glad to hear this. Left wing activists have been stymieing free speech on college campuses for far too long.”
