Donald Trump has confirmed his presence at the upcoming Republican National Committee donor retreat in the spring, as the former president reappears after leaving the White House.
The private retreat is scheduled to take place April 9-11 in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump’s planned attendance at the event, which is expected to attract an array of major GOP donors, was confirmed by two people familiar with his plans. Republican officials declined to say where the event is taking place, but said it would not be at Trump’s neighboring estate in Mar-a-Lago, where the former president stayed.
Trump had been largely absent from the public eye since leaving Washington last month, speaking only in television appearances and through statements. But the former president – who lost access to his beloved Twitter account after the Jan.6 uprising on Capitol Hill – is starting to re-engage. He is expected to speak on Sunday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, his first public appearance since leaving the White House.
