President Trump Speaks at CPAC

2 minute read

President Donald J. Trump will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, February 24. The President will address the annual meeting of the conservative movement at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Maryland, at 10:00 AM.

CPAC is a gathering of conservative activists from all across the country who meet to learn from each other, receive training in activism and campaign management, and hear from prominent conservative leaders. The conference began in 1974, when then-Governor Ronald Reagan described his vision of America as a “city upon a hill” for the first time.

To date, three Presidents have addressed CPAC. President Trump will be the fourth. President Trump has addressed CPAC several times in the past, speaking to the gathering in 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Heading into the conference, President Trump has already achieved many important accomplishments in his first month in office. Whether it is jumpstarting job creation, restoring public safety, slashing harmful regulations, or keeping his promise to defend the Constitution, conservatives have much to be excited about heading into Friday’s message from the President.

In addition to the President, Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the conference tonight, February 23, at 7:30 PM. Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon spoke to the conference this afternoon.
