Trump to make first public appearance since leaving office

Former United States president, Donald Trump, is expected next Sunday to make his first public appearance since leaving office.

The former US president, who departed the White House on 20 January, is set to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida.

The full line-up of the annual gathering of conservative politicians and media figures has not yet been announced.

But Trump is expected to be the last speaker on the final day of the event of 28 February, NBC News reported, citing two sources familiar with the plans.

As America’s commander-in-chief, he spoke at CPAC several times, often using it to deliver some of his longest speeches. In 2019, he talked for more than two hours.

This year, according to one source, he is planning to address his second impeachment trial, where he was acquitted by the Senate of inciting the rioting at the US Capitol on 6 January.

He is also expected to give his views on the future of the Republican party and the conservative movement.
