Former President Donald Trump will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, next week in his first major public appearance since leaving office.
Trump will speak on Sunday afternoon, the final day of the conference, which will run from February 25 to February 28, the conference organizer confirmed to Newsweek on Saturday.
The former president will use his time to discuss the future of the Republican party and the conservative movement, according to The Hill. He’s also expected to attack President Joe Biden‘s extensive immigration plan by specifically highlighting “disastrous amnesty and border policies,” the publication reported.
The annual conservative conference, which typically takes place in or near Washington, D.C., was moved to Florida this year to escape stringent coronavirus restrictions.
Trump has spoken at CPAC in previous years, but his attendance in the aftermath of losing the 2020 presidential election remained up in the air until Saturday.
In the months after the election, the highly influential conference grappled with how much they wanted to focus on Trump’s ongoing influence within the GOP, Politico reported in January.
“Do we pull the Nancy Pelosi option and try to expunge Trump from public life or do we try to build on the movement he created and make it tenable? It’s messy,” a person involved in the CPAC planning process told the outlet.
But without Trump, Politico reported that the conference was facing difficulty with programming and guest bookings.
