Former* President Donald J. Trump will be the keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference coming up just over a week from now.
Trump appeared on Fox News this week to remark on the tragic death of conservative hero Rush Limbaugh, which was his first on-air appearance since departing the White House.
Now we’ll hear from him on a big stage once more, as the New York Post just reported.
Former President Trump will be a keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Fla., his first public speaking engagement since leaving the White House, a spokesman for the organization confirmed to The Post on Saturday.
Trump is scheduled to speak on Sunday, Feb 28, the last day of the conference.
Trump’s speech will focus on “the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement,” a source close to the former president told The Post.
“Also look for the 45th President to take on President Biden’s disastrous amnesty and border policies,” the source added.
This year CPAC will be in Orlando. They say it’s because of Coronavirus restrictions in Washington, D.C. and in Maryland, where it has recently been regularly held.
But there’s no reason not think it might ALSO be a nod to wildly popular Republican governor Ron DeSantis, who has wooed not only the Trump/MAGA base but made many inroads with the elite snob class, too.
If Trump decides to remain kingmaker rather than be king again, it would be no surprise to those of us at Right Scoop if he named a successor in DeSantis.
