Report: Trump Accepts Public Speaking Gig, First Major Appearance Since Leaving Office

Former President Trump has reportedly accepted a speaking gig at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) conference, which is next Sunday.

The speech will be Trump’s first major appearance since leaving the White House as he did not attend the presidential inauguration on January 20th.

Fox News initially broke the news of Trump’s expected participation, citing “two sources told Fox News” and “a source familiar with Trump’s speech.”

As for his speech, the report adds: “Trump will be talking about the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement.”

The former president will also directly address President Biden’s “disastrous amnesty and border policies.”

Since leaving the White House, President Trump has been silent — mostly due to social media bans — but he has expressed his intention to stay politically active.

“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again (MAGA) has only just begun,” he said last week, Fox News reports. “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. There has never been anything like it!”

The president has previously hinted at seeking office again, running in 2024, and could use his first public appearance since leaving office to gauge support for a potential run.

Fox News reports the CPAC conference this year will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Florida — rather than its traditionally-held venue of the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Maryland.

The change of venue was a result of coronavirus-related restrictions in and around Washington D.C., it also moves the conference to just under 200 miles from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
