President Trump will address the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, on Friday at 10:20 a.m. ET, just outside of Washington, D.C. The conference is billed by its organizers as “the birthplace of modern conservatism.” As a candidate, Trump did not attend the annual gathering of conservative activists. Now, he will speak as the leader of a Republican-controlled government. NPR’s Politics team will be annotating a transcript of his remarks as he makes them.

President Trump held a news conference in the East Room of the White House on Thursday. In an event arranged the same morning, he first announced his new pick for Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, a law school dean and former US Attorney. He made an extended opening statement in defense of his administration, trumpeting accomplishments and blasting his critics and the news media. He then opened the floor for questions, which lasted more than an hour.

President Trump is the latest in a succession of U.S. presidents pledging unbreakable support for Israel. Last year, for instance, the US signed a $38 billion military aid package with the Israelis even as Washington pressed Israel to make peace with the Palestinians.
