(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Hundreds of supporters of former President Donald Trump gathered outside of the Hyatt Hotel in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday to greet him before he gave his first post-White House speech.
The former president addressed the flagship conservative event of the year, which is usually held in Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. every February or March.
Footage of the rally showed a huge number of diehard Trump supporters welcoming him to the conference.
In a show of support that few former presidents have ever received from their parties, the rally indicated that President Donald Trump is very much the frontrunner for the 2024 primary race…presuming he runs again.
Grant Stern reported that as many as one thousand supporters gathered outside the Hyatt Hotel. He also claimed that some in attendance were “repping the very group who organized the Capitol riots and insurrection,” without indicating what group he was referring to.

Supporters gathered in hope of catching a glimpse of the president as he enters the conference in his motorcade with Secret Service protection.

On Presidents’ Day this year, the former president greeted supporters in a motorcade, waving from the back of his vehicle. Trump also famously greeted supporters in a motorcade when he was diagnosed with COVID-19 and supporters gathered outside of the hospital.
During his CPAC speech, President Trump indicated that he may run for president once again.
“I may even decide to beat them for a third time,” the president said in his speech, sparking anger from left-wing media outlets that believe the Russians rigged the 2016 election, but that domestic actors couldn’t engage in election fraud in the 2020 election.

If the crowds and the response from the audience are anything to go by, the former president has a lot of Republican support behind him if he did decide to run.
