Donald Trump mean decisiveOne conservative political scientist believes that it will be extraordinarily difficult for Republicans or Democrats to oppose President Donald Trump's initiatives following his speech before a conservative gathering near Washington, D.C.

Trump's impassioned speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) drew numerous cheers from the audience as he pointed to what he considered the successes of the Trump administration in just over a year in office.

"My administration, I think, has had the most successful first year in the history of the presidency – I really believe that,” Trump proclaimed to the crowd at the nation’s capital. “I mean judges, regulations … everything. And the beautiful thing about the tax cuts is nobody thought we could do it."

Dr. Charles W. Dunn, who is the Professor Emeritus of Government at Clemson University, pointed out that everything Trump said during his CPAC speech was taking the offense against the opposition.

"It will be extraordinarily difficult for people in the Republican Party to oppose him – and extraordinarily difficult for the Democratic Party to oppose him,” Dunn argued. “He did that by laying out the extraordinary successes that his administration has enjoyed in less than two years in office."

Dunn added that the president also pointed to what he hopes to accomplish in the next two to four years – which could quite possibly extend into his second term as the 45th president of the United States.
