Would it really be a conservative conference without the undisputed leader of the Republican Party?
It appears Former President Donald Trump is set to headline the Conservative Political Action Conference, according to a Monday announcement.
“I’ll be attending CPAC again this year in Orlando, Florida,” Trump said in a video posted to Twitter by Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union.

The 45th president first attended CPAC in 2021 and told organizers for CPAC 2022 to get a “bigger ballroom this year.”
“Last year, it was packed, and there were thousands of people outside, and they said, ‘We’re going to get a real big one,’” he said.
Trump has made some fantastic speeches at previous CPAC events. From his groundbreaking speech in 2019 where he predicted a blowout 2020 presidential victory (he won), to his comeback performance in 2020 after Democrats stole the election, Trump understands how to ignite a conservative crowd.
While CPAC has had a troubling history banning certain conservatives for publicity reasons, organizers of the event are fully aware of Trump’s star power and would be wise to highlight the Former President every way they can.
Other notable speakers confirmed for CPAC include Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican, and Ian Prior, executive director of FightforSchools.com.
Conservatives every can rejoice — Donald Trump will be on the main stage again!
