Former US President Donald Trump is set to deliver next Sunday his first speech before an audience since he left the White House, local media reported Saturday.

Media outlets including CNN, The New York Times and Politico cited unnamed aides close to Trump who confirmed the former president's speaking slot at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida. In his February 28 address, Trump will talk about "the future of the Republican Party and the conservative movement," a source told Politico.

The last time the 74-year-old fronted a crowd was at rally on 6 January, shortly before a deadly riot by his supporters at the US Capitol.

Besides Trump, the CPAC website lists several other of his conservative allies as speakers including his former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, and former White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
