Former President Donald Trump will talk about the future of the Republican Party and lessons learned in the 2020 election campaign during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump senior adviser Jason Miller has said.
The former president, who will be making his first public appearance since leaving office, is scheduled to speak on the last day of the conference on Feb. 28, CPAC spokesman Ian Walters told The Epoch Times on Feb. 20.
Miller told Newsmax on Feb. 20 that Trump intends to share his views on growing GOP support for his “America First” agenda, as well as about what the Republican Party could do to yield wins 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.”
Trump is a frequent guest at the conference, hosted by the American Conservative Union, that attracts hundreds of conservatives each year. This year’s event, which will run between Feb. 25 and 28, will be held in Orlando, Florida.
Other confirmed speakers at the event include South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Secretary of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, and former acting national security adviser Richard Grenell.
