Former President Trump received a rockstar welcome Saturday night with flags waving and chants of “USA” and this was before his CPAC keynote address.

Trump arrived at UFC 264 to watch the main event, a clash between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, to a supportive crowd as he arrived with UFC president Dana White in Las Vegas.

Mel Gibson was seen on video saluting the 45th president.

The next day Trump won the straw poll at CPAC and was cheered by supporters in Dallas, Texas.
