Report: Trump slated to speak at CPAC in first major address since leaving office

After laying low for the first few weeks of his post-presidency life, Donald Trump will soon be back in the spotlight.

According to Fox News, the former president has decided to accept an invitation to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and will address the group next Sunday, Feb. 28, in what will be his first major address and public appearance since leaving office last month.

The conference is typically held near Washington, D.C., but has been moved to Orlando, Florida this year because there are fewer COVID-19 restrictions there, according to the Washington Examiner. The event starts Thursday, and Trump will keynote the final day of the event.

Sources told Fox News that Trump’s speech will address the future of the Republican Party and conservative movement, and will also cover his successor President Joe Biden’s “disastrous amnesty and border policies.”

A voice for conservatives

Trump has been appearing at CPAC regularly since 2011, long before he became a presidential candidate and was elected to the office, as Politico notes. During Trump’s time in office, the conference featured many voices from his administration.

Other speakers reportedly scheduled to appear this year include former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former press secretary Sarah Sanders, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, former Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell, and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), all members of Trump’s administration or strong supporters of him.

Indeed, since the conference is focused on conservative politics, the Trump wing of the party will likely dominate this year’s event, and it will be a good chance for the former president and his allies to articulate their right-wing populist vision for the Republican Party, particularly amid pushback from establishment Republicans like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) who seem to have turned on Trump now that he has left office.

Some of these lawmakers, such as Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), voted to impeach Trump and blamed him for inciting the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Others, like Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), voted to convict Trump after he was impeached by the House.

Trump’s not going away

The Republican Party now seems to be at war with itself, and Trump has made it clear that he is not going away quietly after maintaining strong support from GOP voters even after leaving office.

“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again [MAGA] has only just begun,” the former president said last week after his impeachment acquittal, according to Fox.

“In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people,” he added. “There has never been anything like it!”

Trump is said to have indicated he intends to be involved in the 2022 midterm elections, and reports allege he is considering another presidential run in 2024.

It is a shame that the rhinos are not supporting the constitution and our freedoms but are willing tools of the communist democrats that are in the process of destroying all that our country stands for. Their lies are unbelievable! The democrats are and have been (and that includes the current President Biden) the most racist people through out our history and now they have add the communist angle to destroy us!

  7. Still cannot come to terms that America as great as it is has just been victimized by the worst crime in her history and is just supposed to move on and and accept it…..NO WAY! The treasonous sob’s that perpetrated it MUST be held accountable. Too many patriots that gave life and limb to be where we are deserve that. America is now being run by treasonous criminals. Don’t know how this travesty to America can be uncovered since the present law enforcement which has been fooling us since 2016 when Hilliary’s crimes were covered up. Luckily for America Hilliary lost the election ( the deep state didn’t cheat enough). In 2020 the deep state realized that to win they NOW had to bring in the big guns and cheat like hell. With Hunter’s laptop being hidden by the FBI (same FBI but Comey gone and Wray in charge) they pulled it off. The courts became cowards and backed away from even hearing the overwhelming evidence….cowards all of them.

  8. I hope that President Trump is very careful . Those S.O.B’s hate him and they will stop at nothing to hurt him. They are mean vicious people that should all be put in jail. They know that the majority of true Americans want him back as our President. I never thought that their were so many people that had so much hate in their heart. They are terrible people.

  9. Will the American people see the TRUTH come out soon? The Good guys have all the Blackmail information. They know who’s been compromised and how. The bad actors might as well just turn themselves in. Either way the BAD GUYS loose. Bring on JUSTES for America. The TRUTH never changes it always remains the TRUTH. Lies always seam to change. Fight on American’s.
