Donald Trump has confirmed his attendance at the Republican National Committee’s upcoming spring donor retreat, as the former president reappears after his departure from the White House.
The private retreat is scheduled for April 9-11 in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump’s expected attendance at the event, which is expected to draw a wide variety of Republican donors, was confirmed by two people familiar with his plans. Republican officials declined to specify where the event will take place, but said it would not be at Trump’s nearby Mar-a-Lago estate, where the former president has been staying.
Trump had been largely absent from the public eye since leaving Washington last month, speaking only on television appearances and through statements. But the former president, who lost access to his beloved Twitter account after the January 6 Capitol uprising, is beginning to react. He is scheduled to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Sunday, his first public appearance since leaving the White House.
