Former President Donald Trump has been slated to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference, starting next week, marking his first major public appearance since leaving the White House.
Trump’s speech will focus on the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement. The former president will also consider President Joe Biden’s immigration policies during his speech, a source told USA Today.
Trump is the first speaker listed on the CPAC’s website. The former president’s own profile described him as “the very definition of an American success story” that set standards of excellence in his business endeavors, and now, for the United States.
CPAC will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Florida from 25-28. The conference, usually held in the Washington, DC, area, was moved to Florida due to COVID-19.
A conference of conservative activists from across the country, the CPAC has been the launching pad for many Republican presidential candidates. The former president is one of a long list of speakers that includes South Dakota Village. Christy Noam, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Government of Florida. Ron Desantis, censor. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Ted Cruz of Texas, Rick Scott of Florida. And Josh Hawley of Missouri.
The news of Trump speaking at the CPAC came after the former president said in a press release on Tuesday that Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell had remained silent since he stepped down after the blast.
“The Republican Party can never be respected or strengthened with political ‘leaders’. Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm … Mitch is a daring, monotonous and political hack, and if Republican senators are going to live with him , They will. ” Did not win again, ”Trump said. “He Never do what should be done, or that is right for our country. “
Trump did not say whether he would run for the presidency again when asked during an interview with Newsmax on Wednesday. But he vowed to repel “primary rivals who re-create the American greats and our police of America First” in his press release on Tuesday, indicating that politics and the Republican Party will remain involved.
Republicans, highly critical of Trump, were not included in the speaker lineup for the “America Uncharted” themed convention.
Matt Schlap, president of the American Conservative Union and a primary organizer of the CPAC, worked with Trump on his electoral protests in the wake of the loss of Joe Biden.
