Schlapp announced the news on Twitter as the president travels to Vietnam for a summit with Kim Jong-Un. The president’s speech is scheduled for Saturday at 11:30 EST.
CPAC was the site of one of Trump’s first big political speeches in 2011 as he previewed a run for president.
“I can tell you this if I run and if I win, this country will be respected again,” he said.
