Donald Trump to speak at CPAC

Ironically, it was GOProud that invited Trump to attend the conference in 2011, in a last-minute addition to the conference. Trump's appearance caused some controversy when he declared that former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) had "zero chance" of becoming president.

Trump will join former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney — who he vocally backed in last year's election — and a number of other Republican stars at the event. The speaking list includes Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Marco RubioMarco RubioNorth Korean official calls Trump idea of meeting 'nonsense' Senate candidate taunts Sanders: Why don't you endorse Alan Grayson?
