Donald Trump will make a speech at CPAC next Sunday in Orlando as his first since leaving office.
A similar invitation was given to former VP Mike Pence, who declined the offer.
The conference is the largest annual conservative political event and President Trump’s plan to reemerge there sends a crystal clear message that he’s back and moving in on Biden.
Trump already has tons of ammunition to target Biden, who has been busy destroying many of Trump’s policies.
A source familiar with Donald Trump’s plans to speak at CPAC, said to CNN on Saturday that “Trump will be discussing the future of the Republican Party and conservative leadership in America.”
“Also expect to heart about Trump’s take on President Biden’s disastrous amnesty and border policies,” the source said.
Trump broke away from Pence when the former VP wouldn’t overturn the fraudulent election on January 6. That break is not likely to go away any time soon.
Pence was expected to stay out of the public eye for the next 6 months or so. While he has received a position as a distinguished fellow at the Heritage Foundation, many think his focus will be on 2024 and how to “maneuver around” Trump to get the nomination.
If Trump does not run in 2024, it’s doubtful Pence will get his endorsement. But the political climate might have changed and Republicans will spend much of that time arguing over what type of party they want to be.
Most conservatives believe an active Trump is indispensable to the party’s chances in 2022 and 2024. His larger-than-life personality will dominate the conversation, and Trump will be a go-to asset for all conservatives moving forward.
