Friendly CPAC 2021 Speaker Lineup Shows Little Sign of GOP Civil War

Friendly CPAC 2021 Speaker Lineup Shows Little Sign of GOP Civil War

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), is held each year in Washington D.C., featuring major conservative personalities in speeches and other panel events.

The reality TV star and infamous former US President, Donald Trump, has made a decision to finally face the cameras since he lost his voice on social media platforms.

Former President Trump is scheduled to make his first public appearance since leaving office at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) next weekend, and Lara Trump shared her expectations for the message he'll share.

Miller confirmed to Newsman that Trump, during his speech, would share his views on the "America First" agenda and what he feels the GOP can do to garner more wins in 2022 and 2024 - including winning majorities in the House and Senate.

Ian Walters, spokesperson for the American Conservative Union, confirmed that Trump will be speaking at the group's annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on February 28. In 2019, Trump spoke for more than two hours.

After his historic defeat and a follow-up of unverified allegations and riots, Trump will take the stage at this year's CPAC to talk about "the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement", the source revealed.

Stripped of his Twitter megaphone, he called into friendly cable TV news programs this week after the death of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, musing on far-right channel Newsmax about the possibility of a future political run.

Trump first appeared at CPAC in 2011 at the urging of GOProud, a gay conservative group.

Trump will have a large say in that debate. But the political landscape may have changed dramatically in four years and the Republican Party is going to spend much of that time fighting about what kind of party they want to be.

Lawmakers and attendees were forced to quarantine after last year's event following news that a person who had attended tested positive for COVID-19.

The gap between Trump and McConnell widened when the latter declared after the Senate's acquittal of the former president that Trump was "practically and morally responsible" for the Capitol siege.

Other notable speakers at the conference include Trump's former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Trump's former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), Trump's former press secretary Sarah Sanders, and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R).

A similar invitation was tendered to former vice president Mike Pence, who declined.
