NATIONAL HARBOR, MD. — Security escorted a man dressed as President Trump out of the Conservative Political Action Conference during Vice President Pence’s address on Thursday. 

 

The protester began to yell during Pence’s address to the gathering at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center before he was intercepted by security. 

The man was dressed in a suit, red tie and wig impersonating Trump’s hairstyle. 

Pence delivered a campaign-like address to a crowd of hundreds of supporters, touting Trump’s policies and taking aim at 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. 

“Despite what the media loves to tell you, there are no moderates in this Democratic field,” Pence said. 

The vice president singled out front-runner Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in particular, hitting the self-declared democratic socialist on his progressive policies. 

“It’s truly astonishing to think that the party of Harry Truman and JFK is actually on the verge of nominating an avowed socialist,” he said.
