Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump promised to win Colorado when he spoke at the Western Conservative Summit Friday morning.

"We're gonna [sic] win what? Colorado. We got to win this one," Trump told the crowd shortly after taking the stage.

This was Trump’s first appearance in Colorado since last October’s Republican debate at the University of Colorado-Boulder Campus, but he wasted no time connecting with a conservative crowd which filled about half of the ballroom.

"Colorado, NRA, they're like synonymous. The NRA endorsed me, we're going to save your Second Amendment," he promised.

The crowd also became excited when Trump talked about getting tough on terrorists from the moment he gets into office.

"The only thing they understand is strength and toughness,” he said.  “And we're weak. We're weak. And Hillary is as weak as you get."

While Trump has previously called for banning all Muslims from entering the U.S., he appeared to be toned down a bit today when talking about immigration.

"We're going to let people come into our country that should come into our country and they're going to let them come into our country legally. And we want them to come in," he added.

The three-day Western Conservative Conference bills itself as, "the largest gathering of conservatives outside of Washington, DC."

The 2008 vice presidential candidate, and former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, spoke before Trump.  See her speech here .
