In response to questioning from Media Matters' Joe Strupp at a press conference, Cardenas said that despite Trump's history of racially inflammatory remarks and ongoing promotion of conspiracy theories about President Obama's birthplace, Trump had been invited to speak because "we can't have thirty people saying the same thing with the same backgrounds."

Cardenas praised Trump as "a billionaire who creates jobs" and is "not afraid to talk about the failures of the Obama administration." He said that Trump, who has spoken previously at CPAC, is "a persuasive speaker" who was brought "back by public demand" and that "the crowd here loves him."
