UPDATE 12:55 p.m.: Trump will speak at 4:15 p.m. EST (1:15 p.m. PST).
Orlando, Fla., – February 28, 2021 – Former President Donald J Trump will be delivering the keynote address Sunday afternoon to close out the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). This comes in less than six weeks after leaving office.
CPAC is an annual political conference hosted by the American Conservative Union that is attended by conservatives from across the United States.
Last week during an interview with Sky News Australia, former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka said U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suffers from “Trump derangement syndrome” and that her attempt to make President Donald J Trump a “martyr” for the second time means the former president has been able to re-enter the political sphere immediately.
After leaving office, President Donald J Trump established the “Office of the Former President.” The Former Presidents Act establishes funding for a president’s office along with access to classified security briefings, personal security and a pension.
He has endorsed Sarah Huckabee Sanders for her run to be the next Governor of Arkansas, paid tribute to the passing away of Rush Limbaugh, and wished Tiger Woods well after the pro golfer was injured in a last week’s car crash.
Besides these handful of public statements, for the most part, the former president has been silent. What can we expect to hear during his expected ninety-minute address?
Will President Trump share his thoughts on the Biden administration’s stance on immigration and the Keystone XL? Will he address Big Tech censorship, criticize Rep. Liz Cheney or Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez for their vote to impeach him a few weeks ago? Will the president announce a 2024 Presidential run or a 2022 Congressional run?
One can argue that the Republican partly is divided between the Establishment and the Trump voter. Perhaps the former president will deliver a unifying message.
Well, we will have to wait and see.
The address is scheduled for 3:40 p.m. EST today and can be viewed live on Right Side Broadcasting Network.
