Former President Donald Trump forced attendees to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to wait over an hour on Sunday after he failed to show up on schedule.

Minutes before the former president was scheduled to appear on stage in Orlando, Fox News broke the news to their viewers that he just left Palm Beach.

"I was talking to somebody on the ground there at CPAC, it looks like he didn't leave Palm Beach for Orlando until just about probably 25 minutes ago, so he should be on the ground soon," Fox News host John Roberts explained. "They're thinking about 4:55 Eastern Time when he hits the stage. So we've got another hour to go. We've got a lot of TV to fill."

Trump's speech was expected to run over two hours, Roberts said.
