TRUMP TO MAKE 1ST SPEECH AFTER LEAVING WHITE HOUSE
Former US president Donald Trump is scheduled to speak before an audience next week for the first time since he left the White House, local media reported, as relayed to Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa).
Media outlets including CNN, the New York Times and Politico cited unnamed aides close to Trump who confirmed the former president's speaking slot at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida.
In his February 28 address, Trump will talk about "the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement," a source told Politico.
The last time the 74-year-old fronted a crowd was at rally on January 6, shortly before a deadly riot by his supporters at the US Capitol. His fans claimed Trump egged them to attack the Capitol.
The CPAC website lists Trump as a speaker alongside several of his conservative allies including his former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, and former White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
