Former Vice President Mike Pence turned down an invitation to attend this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the event that Donald Trump spoke first since leaving the White House.
Mr. Mike Pence was invited to speak at the annual event but declined, Fox News cites a source familiar with the event’s planning.
An assistant to Mr. Pence said that the former US vice president deliberately reduced the attention to himself, focusing on his family and his new partnerships with the Heritage Foundation and the group. Young America’s Foundation (YAF).
Members of Mr. Mike Pence’s team have previously said that the former US Vice President and Mr. Trump were a bit harsh after the riots in the US Congress building on June 6.
But Pence’s former Chief of Staff, Marc Short, told Fox News last week that Mike Pence and Donald Trump are still talking.
While Mike Pence declined to attend, former President Donald Trump will appear at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Mr. Trump is scheduled to give his first public speech since leaving the White House at the event on Sunday (February 28). The 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference opens on February 25 in Orlando, Florida.
Mr. Trump is expected to talk about the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement. In addition, the former US President is expected to also comment on some President Joe Biden’s policies on borders and amnesty, two sources revealed.
Former President Trump has been quite quiet since leaving the White House on January 20, but he once confirmed he wants to continue his political activities and told supporters that the “Make America Great Again” movement is still going strong.
The first CPAC conference was held in 1974, always held in or around Washington, DC
Organizers revealed in December that the event last year attracted nearly 20,000 people in four days. This year, the event will be held mainly in-house at the Hyatt Regency hotel with some individuals attending online.
