Former President Trump will use his Sunday speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to attack his successor President Biden and tease a potential 2024 White House bid, a person familiar with speech confirmed to The Hill on Wednesday.
The speech will mark Trump’s first major appearance on the political stage since leaving Washington on Jan. 20. He’s kept a relatively low profile at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida since then, breaking his silence only occasionally during and after his impeachment trial in the Senate.
But when he takes the stage at CPAC on Sunday, the former president is poised to deliver a scathing rebuke of Biden’s first five weeks in the White House, criticizing his successor’s handling of immigration policy and his posture toward China, among other things.
The content of the speech was first reported on Wednesday by Fox News.
Trump isn’t expected to make an announcement yet on a potential political comeback in 2024, though according to Fox News he is planning to walk “right up to the line of announcing another campaign.”
