Arlington, VA

Pentagon City was abuzz with security personnel today as President Trump delivered a speech to a conference at a local hotel.

The president spoke at the 2020 Council for National Policy conference, hosted in the ballroom of the Ritz-Carlton hotel. He arrived around 11:45 a.m. and spoke for more than an hour, before departing via motorcade back to the White House shortly after 1 p.m.

Before the crowd of several hundred top conservative activists, President Trump spoke at length on a variety of topics.

The topics, according to White House press pool reports, included Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the economy, China, vaccine development, mail-in voting, and Israel. The president’s full remarks are below.

Via Twitter, Pentagon City residents noted major police activity in the area, including road closures and a helicopter overhead. Reporters covering the event noted that many conference attendees did not seem to heed requests to physically distance and wear masks in the ballroom.
