Only hours ago, news broke that President Trump has booked his first appearance since leaving the White House.
What is that old adage… Go big or go home?
Well, Trump went big, and he is expected to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on February 28.
CPAC is being held in Orlando, FL, starting Thursday.
While the actual speaking date for Trump has not been confirmed on the CPAC website, Fox News learned that Trump is expected to speak on the last day of the conference, which is Sunday, February 28.
Trump is expected to hammer Joe Biden on his “disastrous amnesty and border policies.”
Trump will more than likely also discuss the “future” of the party as he sees it and the need to reshape the party with politicians that support the MAGA agenda.
This will be Trump’s first major appearance since leaving office as well as one of only a few times supporters have heard from him in general.
Since leaving office, Trump has had one major interview with Newsmax and YouTube has already censored the video because Trump discussed election fraud.
Rather than discuss who is speaking at CPAC, the more notable topic is who is missing from the speaker list.
Looking up and down the list, it is hard to find a single person on the speaker’s list that is not noticeably pro-Trump.
Nikki Haley, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney… none of them are on the list.
It was also interesting that Vice President Pence is not listed at this time, which is shocking because he is among the favorites to run once the list goes beyond Trump for possible 2024 candidates.
My best guess is that the wedge between Trump and Pence has yet to have been repaired, so everyone is playing it safe and ensuring that these two don’t accidentally bump heads and make headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The one speaker that I did notice that was on the list, however, was South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, another possible candidate for office in 2024.
While Noem has not yet gotten a lot of grip (recent polling has her at only two percent), she is quickly getting everyone’s attention and with Nikki Haley having fallen out of Trump’s good graces, a quick nod by Trump and she would surely catapult to the top of that list.
Tickets are scarce for the event, so we will all have to resort to streaming to see Trump speak, but that may even be difficult due to most social media platforms having already banned Trump.
Regardless, if we can get our hands on video, we surely will be posting it.
