President Donald Trump is expected to speak Friday morning at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Trump’s speech will be a big moment for CPAC, with many looking to see how conservatives react to Trump’s appearance now that he is president. Last year, Trump dropped out of his speaking slot at the gathering amid a growing effort among establishment Republicans to oppose his candidacy.

And now that Trump leads the Republican Party, many who were on the fringes of conservatism were given central roles and secured spots on CPAC’s agenda. Milo Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart News editor, was initially given an important speaking slot to discuss free speech. The conference organizers rescinded his invitation after video surfaced that showed Yiannopoulos appeared to make positive comments about pedophilia.

Trump is set to speak at 10:20 a.m. E.T. You can watch his speech live above.
