Acosta fielded questions from several in the crowd and could be seen taking selfies with some of the CPAC attendees who were at the conference in Orlando, Florida, listening to speeches from prominent conservatives, including Ted Cruz, Dan Bongino, and Donald Trump Jr.
Former President Donald Trump is set to address the crowd on Sunday in a speech that many believe will focus on his plan for the Republican Party going forward, as well as his contribution to politics leading up to the 2024 presidential election.
