The Donald + CPAC. Yes, it’s true. The American Conservative Union announced Wednesday that Donald Trump will address the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference when it fires up next week at a swank resort on the shores of the Potomac River.

“Donald Trump is an American patriot and success story with a massive following among small government conservatives,” says chairman Al Cardenas. “I look forward to welcoming him back to the CPAC stage next week. Mr. Trump’s previous CPAC appearance was hugely popular among our attendees and we expect it will be even more popular this year.”


Mr. Trump joins a roster of high-profile speakers scheduled for the event March 14-16, including Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, Sarah Palin and Gov. Rick Perry.
