President Trump on Friday warned the largest annual gathering of conservatives that Republicans could get "clobbered" in the upcoming midterms if his supporters lack the same enthusiasm they showed during the 2016 election.
"I know that whoever wins the presidency has a disadvantage for whatever reason in the midterms," Trump told the crowd.
What happens is you fight so hard to win the presidency, you fight, fight, fight ... and now you've got to go and fight again, but you just won," Trump said.
"We get clobbered in '18 and we can't let that happen," Trump told the crowd.
“[Democrats] will take away those massive tax cuts, and they will take away your Second Amendment,” he said, urging the crowd to vote for Republicans so his administration can continue to advance its agenda.
