While US President Donald Trump tried to win over skeptics in Congress on Tuesday, he never had to worry about losing the faithful at the Quaker Steak and Lube.

About two dozen fans of the 45th president gathered at the bar and restaurant in Clearwater, Florida, still committed to Trump despite the tumult of his first 40 days in office.They praised the Republican president's first address to a joint session of Congress, both for its familiar content and his newly deferential tone.

"He nailed it. He knocked it out of the park," said Dean Mears, 58, of Clearwater, who watched with about two dozen others under large-screen TVs that were tuned to Fox News, the president's favored cable news channel.
