Donald Trump Invited Back to CPAC

Draws backlash among some conservatives


Real estate mogul and registered independent Donald Trump will be headed to the nation's capital later this month to mingle with Republican luminaries and deliver an address at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

"Donald Trump is an American patriot and success story with a massive following among small government conservatives," Al Cardenas, chairman of the American Conservative Union, said in a press release. "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."
