“The message here is very clear. People love Donald Trump,” Lahren said while recounting her experience at the annual event so far.
CPAC, which runs Thursday through Sunday in Orlando, Fla., has a lineup of high-profile GOP figures, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, actor Jon Voight and Trump himself. The former president will close out the convention with a speech Sunday afternoon — his first major public political appearance since leaving Washington last month.
According to Lahren, Trump’s second impeachment and the Capitol insurrection have not deterred the right-wing CPAC attendees from supporting the former president.
“They want him to announce that he is going to run in 2024,” Lahren said. “People are excited about freedom and tired of the lockdowns, the shutdowns and the infringements.”
The CPAC crowd is looking to Trump for “a lot of guidance and a lot of inspiration,” she added, claiming that support for Trump’s most vocal Republican critics, who haven’t been given any speaking time, among CPAC attendees is minimal.
“There’s not a Liz Cheney hat in sight, but a whole lot of MAGA hats here,” she noted.
