House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and former President Donald Trump met on Thursday at the Mar-a-Lago resort, where President Trump moved to after exiting office, in Florida to discuss the future of the GOP and taking back Congress and the Senate in the 2022 midterm elections.
A meeting readout from Trump’s “Office of the Former President” said, “The meeting between President Donald J. Trump and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, was a very good and cordial one. They discussed many topics, number one of which was taking back the House in 2022. President Trump’s popularity has never been stronger than it is today, and his endorsement means more than perhaps any endorsement at any time.
“President Trump has agreed to work with Leader McCarthy on helping the Republican Party to become a majority in the House. They worked very well together in the last election and picked at least 15 seats when most predicted it would be the opposite. They will do so again, and the work has already started,” the readout continued.
Congressman McCarthy also released a statement on his website which echoed President Trump. Part of it read, “Today, President Trump committed to helping elect Republicans in the House and Senate in 2022. A Republican majority will listen to our fellow Americans and solve the challenges facing our nation. Democrats, on the other hand, have only put forward an agenda that divides us — such as impeaching a President who is now a private citizen and destroying blue-collar energy jobs. For the sake of our country, the radical Democrat agenda must be stopped.”
The statements made by both parties ensure that as of now, President Trump will not be leaving the Republican Party to make his own, and he will continue to play an active role in the political arena.
In an interview with POLITICO, Republican Senator Kevin Cramer said, “The president wanted me to know, as well as a handful of others, that the president is a Republican, he is not starting a third party and that anything he would do politically in the future would be as a Republican. The Republican Party is still overwhelmingly supportive of this president.”
