Donald Trump exited the stage after his speech at CPAC to cheers of "Run Trump Run."

Trump delivered a pro-business, anti-foreign aid message in his brief remarks. He mentioned "if I run," multiple times before delivering his political platform, saying he is pro-life, not in favor of gun control, favors revoking foreign aid, advocates for the repeal and replace of ObamaCare and if elected, will cut taxes.

"If I run and if I win, this country will be respected again."

The Donald also took a shot at Rep. Ron Paul saying, "Ron Paul will never be elected," a comment that received mixed loud boos and applause.
