>> Including Trump himself, who's due to speak on Friday. Now in many respects, Trump's agenda is at odds with traditional conservative ideals of small government and free trade, but that doesn't seem to be a deal breaker for folks here.

After all, Trump won, he's in the white house, and they are looking forward to many victories in the months to come.>> We have a team that's just grinding it through on what President Donald Trump promised the American people.>> Two White House aids, Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, telling the crowd that they need to stay unified as Trump works to deliver on his agenda.
