According to reports, former President Trump will make his first public appearance of relevance on Sunday, Feb. 28 when he will close with a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida.
Since leaving the White House on Jan. 20, Trump has kept a low profile making almost no public appearances, partly because he is censored by almost all social networks and also probably because he has been planning the future of the conservative movement and the actions to follow to face the leftist encroachment posed by the new administration of President Joe Biden.
According to a source familiar with Trump’s speech, the former president will speak about the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement. In addition, he is expected to weigh in on Biden’s “disastrous amnesty and border policies,” Fox News reported.
Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told Newsmax on Saturday that Trump intends to share his views on the GOP’s growing support for his America First agenda, as well as what the Republican Party could do to deliver victories in the 2022 and 2024 elections.
“I think what you’re going to hear President Trump talk about next Sunday on the 28th is the future of the Republican Party and the number of lessons that we learned in 2020, where we saw President Trump bring in a record amount of African American voters, Latino American voters on the GOP side, bigger numbers than we’ve seen in modern Republican presidential history,” Miller said. “We have to keep these voters engaged in the party.”
Other confirmed speakers at the event include South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, and former acting National Security Adviser Richard Grenell.
In 2020, Trump spoke out against the growing influence of socialism, which was the theme of the conference that year. The former president warned about the agenda of far-left radicals and its impact on the United States if left unchecked.
“Far-left radicals have become increasingly desperate and increasingly dangerous in their quest to transform America into a country you would not recognize—a country in which they control every aspect of American life,” Trump said at the time.
One year after that speech, we can see that the Democrats, who functioned as the allies of the extreme left, have managed to come to power and in just one month imposed legislation that affects and will modify all aspects of the lives of Americans.
Trump is a frequent guest at the conference, organized by the American Conservative Union, which attracts hundreds of conservatives every year. But Trump’s presence on this occasion will arouse more interest than usual.
After the electoral irregularities in the last elections, concrete guidelines are expected from the conservative sectors on how to continue and face the leftist advance in the United States. There is no other person better suited today in American politics than former President Donald Trump to develop and communicate these guidelines.
