WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA - FEBRUARY 15: Former President Donald Trump reacts as he is driven past supporters on February 15, 2021 in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Miller confirmed to Newsman that Trump, during his speech, would share his views on the "America First" agenda and what he feels the GOP can do to garner more wins in 2022 and 2024 - including winning majorities in the House and Senate.

Trump in his speech will discuss the future of the Republican Party, a source told the outlet, and will also criticize Biden's "disastrous amnesty and border policies".

Trump already has a lot of ammunition with which to target Joe Biden, who has been busy the last month dismantling numerous former president's policies.

The appearance is scheduled for Sunday, 28 February at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), one of the country's largest annual gatherings of political conservatives. The rally participants lined the street on President's Day to show support for him after his 2020 election loss to President Joe Biden.

Stripped of his Twitter megaphone, he called into friendly cable TV news programs this week after the death of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, musing on far-right channel Newsmax about the possibility of a future political run. Rejecting Romney again this year, CPAC has instead fully embraced Trump-as have most conservative voters.

Members of Pence's team said that the former VP harbored some "bitterness" towards Trump following the Jan.6 Capitol riot, Fox News reports. But the political landscape may have changed dramatically in four years and the Republican Party is going to spend much of that time fighting about what kind of party they want to be.

CPAC is being held this year in Orlando, Fla., and will feature a slew of former Trump administration officials and others who represent his wing of the party, including former secretary of state Mike Pompeo, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.

Last year's CPAC was briefly interrupted by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who attended the conference dressed as Trump while filming his movie, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

Trump and McConnell parted ways in the weeks after the November election, with Trump irked that the Kentucky Republican had recognized Biden as the victor in mid-December. The former president described the Kentucky Republican as "a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack".
