Milei to speak at conservative pro-Trump event in Washington

El Salvador President Nayib Bukele and former UK Prime Minister Liz Truss are also among the confirmed speakers

President Javier Milei will give a speech at the 2024 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) set to take place in Washington between February 21 and 24. Former U.S. President Donald Trump has been announced as the event’s keynote speaker.

CPAC, which is set to celebrate its 50th conference this year, describes itself as “the largest and most influential gathering of conservatives in the world.” The American Conservative Union (ACU) is the organizer of the event, which features speakers associated with the Republican Party.

In addition to the Argentine president, other non-U.S. presenters include El Salvador President Nayib Bukele and former U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss. Other members of the Republican Party, such as former U.S. presidential primary candidate Ben Carson and Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, will also be speaking.

Milei will take to the main stage on Saturday afternoon following a ten-minute presentation by Brazilian Deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of former president Jair Bolsonaro.

The Argentine president is also set to meet U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken this week in Buenos Aires. Blinken will also be traveling to Brazil to meet President Lula da Silva.

CPAC is considered to be the conference that kick-started Trump’s political career, given that he gave his first major political speech there in 2011. The conference, however, seems to have lost some of its popularity in recent years.
