Axios reports that at 3 p.m. ET on the second day of the AFTP’s two-day conference, the former President will give his keynote address.

The report also details that although the summit is invitation-only, the event will be live-streamed and open to the press, but has kept the location of the summit under wraps for security reasons.

The event is slated to be a whose who of Trump allies with former Trump administration officials, pro-Trump members of Congress, and governors scheduled to be in attendance.

Among those in attendance include former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA.), 10 Republican Senators, including Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), and Rick Scott (R-Fla.).
