CPAC's Website underwent DDoS attack right before Trump's speech
Former US President Donald Trump's speech was postponed due to the collapse of the CPAC website and servers. As soon as millions of users were unable to enter the site, Ian Miles Cheong wrote that it was the result of a DDoS attack.

The allegation of the targeted attack has yet to be officially confirmed, but many Twitter users have turned to the FBI for an investigation.
As a result, Trump's speech took place and lasted an hour and a half. Ironically, one of the topics Trump raised was freedom of speech and how Big Tech is suppressing that freedom. Trump was blocked on all social media after a crowd took over the Capitol on January 6.
