About a dozen Republicans in the House of Representatives met with former President Donald Trump this week on the border crisis and how the IDP plans to turn around the lower chamber in 2022.
Leaders of the Republican Study Committee, which considers itself the largest conservative caucus in the House, have gone to Florida to meet with the former president.
The committee said the meeting contained a discussion of ‘the challenges facing our country’.
“From securing our border to fighting rising inflation and the deficit, #RSC is fighting for working families. Thank you, President Trump, for developing an agenda that puts Americans first! “It said and shared photos of Trump with members.
“It was such a wonderful meeting with President Trump last night to discuss a number of conservative priorities. From border security and electoral integrity to inflation and beyond, ”said Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.).
Rep. Jim Banks (India), Chairman of the Committee, tell the New York Post that most of the nearly two-hour-long meeting is about the work the panel is doing to fight for what it described as ‘the Trump agenda’.
“We talked about our electoral integrity bill, The Save Democracy Act, which he strongly supports, and we talked about what we did to define immigration going forward,” he said.
Republicans turned over 15 House seats, mostly from Democrats, in the presidential election in 2020. The IDP remains in the minority, with a deficit of eight seats, but is confident it can take back the resources in 2022, although Democrats believe they will retain control.
“We believe we are taking back the majority by focusing on the Trump agenda, and President Trump is playing a big role in that,” Banks said. “He’s going to be going to share the candidates who share our vision, and we were excited to talk to him about it.”
‘We have reached an agreement with a broad unit in the Republican Study Committee and because we recognize that the Trump agenda is the winning agenda, we will win back the majority in ’22 and the White House in 2024 so that Republicans on the Trump agenda can act. , ”Did he added to Breitbart News, explaining that the platform includes strict immigration policies, legislation to curb Big Tech, and bills such as the Save Democracy Act.
Trump did not publicly comment on the meeting, nor did his spokesman, Jason Miller. Trump will soon be more visible after staying largely out of the spotlight after leaving the presidency due to the fact that he opposes President Joe Biden and the Nancy Pelosi (D-California) agenda, Banks said.
“He feels he has a duty to go back and hold on, to hold the marches, to talk to the American people and to weigh how disastrous the Biden-Pelosi agenda is for our country,” he said. said. ‘So I think we’ll get … we’ll see a lot more of him. And I think that’s good for Republicans. This is good for … this is good for America. ”
