Donald Trump CPAC 2021 speech latest – Former president to take stage in Dallas

FORMER President Donald Trump will take the stage in Dallas to speak at the CPAC conference on Sunday, July 11, 2021.

Leaders have called CPAC the largest and most influential gathering of conservatives in the world.  

Trump is scheduled to address the crowd at 3:35 p.m. CT on July 11.

The former US leader admitted he missed "helping people" since leaving the White House, telling Sean Hannity he's more popular now than he was before the 2020 election.

While speaking to Sean Hannity, Trump said about a potential 2024 run: "I am looking at it very seriously, beyond seriously.

"From a legal standpoint, I don't really want to talk about it yet."

When Hannity asked Trump what he missed the most about his time in office, he said it was the opportunity to "help people."

"I miss the most … helping people, because I can directly help people," Trump said.

The former president wouldn't confirm or deny whether he actually planned to try for the top job again.

But he did tell Hannity that if Republicans wanted to win elections, they should run on his Make America Great Again agenda.

    PLAN TO REINSTATE TRUMP

    Attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas have reportedly been handed cards outlining a seven-point-plan aimed at getting the former president reinstated. 

    The cards appeared to have been made by a group called Patriots Soar, which reportedly was not linked to the organizers of the conference.

    The bizarre plan involves giving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the boot and eventually installing Donald Trump in her place.

    Once he had taken the role of Speaker, Trump would then call for a vote to impeach, charge, and remove "imposters" President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

    As the Speaker of the House is third in the line of presidential succession, the plan then saw the former president step back into his “rightful place.”
