Usually, the party in the White House will have a hard time during midterm elections. The same may happen in 2022 as well. However, the GOP doesn’t plan on taking any chances as they load up with former President Donald Trump for a Congressional comeback.
The former president remains coy on whether or not he will run for the White House again in 2024. But in the meantime, he is fully embracing his role as a kingmaker. The candidates he supports and endorses tend to do well. This might be partly due to many of such candidates echo and emulate Trump’s “America First” platform.
Meanwhile, Trump still ranks high in polls with the GOP voting base, and the leaders of the Republican Party know this. Because of this, they are plotting the GOP Congressional comeback roster with Trump for 2022.
On Thursday, the former president met up with Republican Leaders to plot the course they need to take to win the majority back in the House of Representatives. This meeting took place in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Rep. Jim Banks (R-ID), the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, conferred with the former president regarding what their strategy would be for immigration and election integrity.
According to Banks, the meeting with Trump lasted almost two hours. He added that they believe they can win back the House majority by pushing the Trump agenda.
Bank said Trump plans to go on the road and campaign for candidates running who share their vision. He described their group members as “very encouraging,” adding that the members encourage Trump to run in 2024, communicate with Americans, and engage with Americans.
