Thousands of conservative activists are coming together for the first time in nearly a decade behind a Republican President at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from the conference at National Harbor, Maryland:

A year ago a panel with former Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon and former RNC chairman Reince Preibus was unlikely:

(Preibus) "It was Donald Trump that was able to bring this party and this movement together."

Preibus, now the White House Chief of Staff and Bannon, now the President's chief strategist, say they are on the same page, implementing an agenda made clear during the campaign:

(Bannon) "And the mainstream media better understand something, all of those promises are going to be implemented."

Chants of Trump broke out among the several thousand in this resort ballroom. The President will try to keep up that enthusiasm here tomorrow morning.
