Democrats and the media think they have successfully cancelled Trump because they no longer hear from him on social media.
They are mistaken.
Republicans know that Trump is still a major driving force in politics and they are meeting with him this week to refine strategy for the 2022 midterm elections.
The Hill reports:
Republican Study Committee to meet with Trump in New Jersey next week
The Republican Study Committee (RSC) will huddle with former President Trump next week in New Jersey as conservatives plan their messaging efforts heading into the 2022 midterms.
Spokespeople for both Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), the RSC’s char, and Trump confirmed the meeting will take place at Trump’s Bedminster resort. The summit was first reported by the New York Post.
Banks, who has emerged as an increasingly influential force among House Republicans said the meeting will serve as an opportunity to sync up messaging and what policies the GOP can try to push for on the campaign trail and in the House, both before and after the 2022 elections.
“At RSC, what we’ve been focused on is really developing an agenda, the traditional conservative issues that RSC has always been involved with: balanced budgets and fiscal responsibility, we released our budget last week, strong national defense, and pro-life, social conservative issues. But really, President Trump, where he’s led our party, is to be more focused on the China threat and RSC has been very active on that front,” Banks told the Post.
The New York Post has more:
“We’re looking forward to going up to visit with him to discuss what we’ve been up to and what we plan to do for not just the rest of this term in the minority, but when we get the majority back, but talk to him about what we, what we hope to accomplish.”
Trump last month relocated his political and fundraising operations from Mar-a-Lago in Florida to his Bedminster, NJ resort and golf course for the summer.
The meeting comes as speculation grows over whether Trump will run again in 2024. Numerous 2024 hopefuls including former Vice President Mike Pence, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have met with the group in recent months, with several high-profile potential candidates having reached out to speak to the group in coming weeks.
Trump is going to play a major role in American politics in the coming years whether Democrats and the media like it or not.
