President Trump will be the keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida next weekend, his first public appearance since leaving the White House.
KATV Ian Walters, spokesman for the American Conservative Union, confirmed that Trump will be speaking at the group’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference and is expected to deliver the keynote speech on Sunday February 28, the final day of the conference.
CPAC is being held this year in Orlando, Florida, and will feature a slate of former Trump administration officials and others who represent his ‘America First’ wing of the GOP, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.
Trump has been keeping a relatively low profile since he retired from the White House to Palm Beach, Florida, in January, but reemerged last week to conduct a series of phone-in interviews to commemorate the death of conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh.
Trump has a long history with CPAC, which played a key role in his emergence as a political force. CPAC, one of the biggest events on the conservative calendar, is usually held in National Harbor, Maryland, but this year organizers moved it to Florida to evade strict pandemic restrictions.
