    Link: Trump to Make First Public Speech Since Leaving White House at CPAC

    Trump to Make First Public Speech Since Leaving White House at CPAC
    BY ALLEN ZHONG

    Former President Donald Trump likely will make his first post-White House appearance at the end of February.

    He will be a keynote speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2021 in Orlando, Florida, CPAC Communications Director Ian Walters confirmed to The Epoch Times.

    The former president’s speech is scheduled for the afternoon of Feb. 28, the last day of the conference, Walters said.

    It will likely be Trump’s first public appearance since he left the White House on Jan. 20.

    American Conservative Union (ACU), the host of the conference, invited the former president to speak.

    “I’d love to see him come to CPAC,” ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp told the Washington Examiner. Schlapp said he extended the invitation personally.

    “I think he deserves to be heard. I think even people who disagree with him will agree that he deserves to be heard. He should be uncanceled,” he added.

    A staff member involved in the conference planning told The Epoch Times that the invitation was sent out last year.

    Trump appears to have become more active in the political arena after the conclusion of his second impeachment trial. He issued a lengthy statement challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) speech against him and saluted Rush Limbaugh on several media outlets after the iconic conservative radio commentator’s death.

    The Senate acquitted the former president in a 57-43 vote in his second impeachment trial. Sixty-seven votes were needed to reach an impeachment conviction.

    Most Senate Republicans, 45 out of 50, regarded the second impeachment trial as unconstitutional because Trump had already left the White House and was a private citizen, The Epoch Times reported.

    Trump is frequent speaker at CPAC, an annual event. He issued a dire warning to Americans about socialism in his 2020 CPAC speech.

    “Far-left radicals have become increasingly desperate and increasingly dangerous in their quest to transform America into a country you would not recognize—a country in which they control every aspect of American life,” he said. “Just as socialist and communist movements have done all over the world, they’re cracking down on all dissent and demanding absolute conformity. They want total control.”

    Trump warned that the result of implementing such policies would “turn America very quickly into a large-scale Venezuela.”

    CPAC describes itself as the largest and most influential gathering of conservatives in the world.

    Top conservatives regularly appear at the conferences. Scheduled speakers for this year’s conference include a number of officials from Trump’s administration, including former Housing Secretary Ben Carson, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

    Trump allies like South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and former acting national security adviser Richard Grenell are also slated to speak.

    The lineup also includes some lawmakers like Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.), Rep. Ted Budd (R-N.C.), and Rep Mo Brooks (R-Ala.).

    With reporting from Jan Jekielek. Zachary Stieber, Bowen Xiao, and Emel Akan contributed to this report.

    The duly elected President, actually. Anyone really think there wasn't massive fraud in key states that changed the results? Really?

    Biden is illegal.

    This is good news. Someone called in on Rush's show several days back and suggested that Trump should run for a House seat in 2022. With any luck, Republicans could retake the House and maybe they could make Trump the House Speaker. Wouldn't that be a hoot?

    Trump does not want such close contact with democratic house members!! With his enemies, as equals in government office. This does not fit well with Trump's persona.

    Most people know that Biden was fairly elected. Only the Trump personality cult rejects that conclusion. Even the President's attorney in the second impeachment trial stated that Trump had been voted out of office.

    "Most" people believe what the big news outlets tell them.
    Perhaps you do also.
    Do you think that large corporations in general help people out of the kindness of their hearts?
    Or that large news corporations have many Christian minded people at their helms?
    I would ask you to try this:
    Go to any search engine you trust.
    Type in the search box "who owns the media".
    See the spider web of interconnections and then tell us, "Oh, you were wrong. Everything about reporting is ok."
    You have not noticed the presses' constant hostility for years even before the 2016 election towards Mr. Trump?
    Even when President W. lied about WMD they were not so united in their reporting against him.
    How many died from that?
    And by the way, President Trump was acquitted both times.
    If found guilty you would have been crowing from the top of the barn.

    LOL, "fairly elected". Keep telling yourself that, ALL sufferers of TDS parrot that line.

    Glad to hear that Trump is going to speak at CPAC - there may be hope after all. Trump IS the GOP now, RINOs are fast becoming extinct - why vote for a liberal Republican if you agree with him or her when you can vote for the real thing? An opposition party should be just that.

    He was voted out of office by the Electoral College, I do not believe he was voted out of office by the people. It is a shame that none of the evidence will be looked at and that the impartial courts are cowards.

    Get off of the Q-Anon nonsense. It's ridiculous and just makes you sound ignorant.

    The media, legal experts, and the public reviewed the "evidence," and it proved very little.

    You partially forgot to say this, "Oh, you were wrong. Everything about reporting is ok.""

    Q is who you are... own up to it and make sure you wear your red hat so you are easily identifiable.

    Legal experts, the legitimate media, and about 1/3 of the public would love to find evidence of a scandal. For professionals, it would help make a career. For 1/3 of the public, it would vindicate their opinions.

    And then there are fair-minded people, many of the other 2/3 of the people, who want our elections to remain honest and fair, who would bring it to the attention of the public.

    Many of the "dead" people who voted were easily found alive. Trump won many of the places where Dominion machines were in use. The video evidence widely shown was demonstrated to be heavily edited to appear to show corruption. Many "witnesses" changed their stories under oath and careful questioning. Rudy Giuliani would claim fraud to crowds and television cameras, but would never claim fraud in court. As someone who read the Kraken lawsuit, it was poorly reasoned and was essentially a series of allegations without evidence -- a house of cards that collapses with any pushback.

    Here's a pretty good summation of the things I found as I looked at the "evidence" for myself in the weeks after the election.
