A golden statue of former President Donald Trump was unveiled late Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Fla.,.
Video showed the statue being rolled out through hallways at the annual right-wing conference. The structure includes a golden figure of Trump wearing a suit jacket and red tie, paired with American-flag shorts and flip flops.
A Bloomberg reporter shared footage of staff at the conservative conference wheeling a golden statue of the former US president across the conference floor.
Footage shows supporters taking selfies with the statue and watching in awe as it is rolled through the building.
Several people stopped to pose with the statue, with one woman saying, “Awesome,” and another person commenting, “That is so cool.” Another person can then be heard in the video starting to chant, “four more years.”
In reference to a chant popular with Mr Trump’s supporters when he was America’s president.
Ian Walters, spokesman for the American Conservative Union, confirmed that Trump will be speaking at the group’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference on Sunday.
The conference will also serve as an opportunity for other GOP 2024 hopefuls. The list of other speakers who are also considered by many to be potential White House candidates include Govs. Kristi Noem of South Dakota and Ron DeSantis of Florida; former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; and Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Josh Hawley (Mo.), Rick Scott (Fla.) and Tom Cotton (Ark.).
Trump Plans to Make ‘Forward Looking’ Speech at CPAC
Trump, who is a featured speaker at CPAC, will express his concerns about the direction President Joe Biden has taken since coming into office. Biden has taken numerous executive actions to reverse Trump administration policies and is receiving blowback for a number of these actions, including court challenges, Trump senior adviser Jason Miller has said.
The former president will focus on issues such as the amnesty push for illegal immigrants, the halting of the border wall construction, and the blocking of the Keystone XL Pipeline, Miller said.
“The focus here, really, is the exact things the president predicted would happen if Joe Biden were to be elected president on the policy end have already started to happen,” Miller told Mediaite founder Dan Abrams in a radio interview on Thursday.
The former president is scheduled to speak on the last day of the conference on Feb. 28. The conference begins on Friday.
