Summary

Williams, a conservative activist, was punched on the campus of the University of California Berkeley last month.“Ladies and gentlemen, he took a hard punch in the face for all of us,” the President said.He didn’t offer any more details on the order.From CNN's Nikki CarvajalFrom CNN's Nikki Carvajal President Trump said Saturday that all of the territory of the ISIS caliphate in Syria has been taken back, despite previously saying something similar just days ago.“As of today or tomorrow, we will have 100% of the caliphate defeated,” the President told CPAC.He said his generals told him it would take two years for them to be defeated, but he said that would take too long. An official of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces disputed that statement, saying that the fight is ongoing and that they were surprised by Trump's statement.On Friday, the SDF began a ground operation to clear civilians from Baghouz in Syria, the last piece of territory under ISIS' control.CNN's Holmes Lybrand is fact-checking some of the topics being discussed at CPAC, including abortion, opioids, the Trump tax cut, and the claim that those supporting the Green New Deal want to kill cows.He's updating as the conference continues.From CNN's Sarah WestwoodPresident Donald Trump has gone after special counsel Robert Mueller extensively, even mocking former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ southern accent when recalling Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the investigation. “The person that appointed Robert Mueller never received a vote.”“So the attorney general is weak and ineffective and he doesn’t do what he should’ve done,” Trump said.He recounted a conversation with first lady Melania Trump he said he had just before he removed former FBI Director James Comey, in which he predicted the firing would be bipartisan because many Democrats had criticized Comey.Trump had earlier called the investigations into him “bullshit” and said congressional committees are only shifting to scrutinize his business dealings because, he claimed, the forthcoming Mueller report will not confirm collusion. We went into a meeting and he said, 'we're going to look into his finances.' I said, 'where did that come from?' You always talked about Russia, collusion with Russia, the collusion delusion."From CNN's Gregory Krieg and Sophie TatumLast year's CPAC represented the GOP's full embrace of President Trump.Trump had gone off-script, discarding prepared remarks he deemed "sort of boring," and touted the success of his administration's first year.He also addressed other issues like immigration -- at the time, senators had spent months trying to negotiate a compromise for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, multiple deals had failed to pass, and tempers were fraying.
