The 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is currently underway.

There are three-days worth of speakers who are set to take part in the annual meeting, which this year sees conservative lawmakers, activities and Republican Party officials converge in Orlando, Florida.

It will culminate on Sunday with former President Donald Trump’s first public speech since leaving office. Reports suggest he will announce a run for office in 2024.

Mike Pence, the former vice president, reportedly turned down an invitation to speak at CPAC, while the Republican senate minority leader Mitch McConnell reportedly received no invitation at all.

It follows recent criticism of Mr Trump’s role in the 6 January insurrection on the US Capitol, and a behind-the-scenes power struggle among Republicans in Congress.
