The full lineup of the annual gathering of conservative lawmakers and media figures has not yet been announced, but Trump is expected to close out the program on February 28th, the last day of the event, according to NBC News, who spoke with two sources familiar with the plans.

After his historic defeat and a follow-up of unverified allegations and riots, Trump will take the stage at this year's CPAC to talk about "the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement", the source revealed.

Trump also laid low as the House impeached him a second time over claims he incited an "insurrection", in reference to the riot, and while the Senate held a trial to convict him for the claimed offense.

Three-quarters of Republicans want Mr Trump to play a prominent role in the party, according to a poll from Quinnipiac University this week.

After being shyly forced out of the White House on January 20, Trump has been residing in his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. He also called in to conservative cable channels Newsmax and Fox News this week following the death of Rush Limbaugh on Thursday. "And I'm looking at poll numbers that are through the roof", he said confidently.

Trump has mostly remained quiet since leaving office, outside of putting out a few official statements, including one that attacked Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for saying Trump bears responsibility for the Capitol Insurrection on January 6.

A number of top Republicans who are considered possible candidates for the party's 2024 presidential nomination are also due to speak at CPAC, including Mr Trump's secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, and Kristi Noem, the governor of South Dakota.

Biden, who is trying to steer the United States through the COVID-19 pandemic and an economic crisis, has tried to avoid discussing Trump, at one point calling him "the former guy". In 2019, Trump spoke for more than two hours.
