Fox News reports:
“President Trump has agreed to work with Leader McCarthy on helping the Republican Party to become a majority in the House,” according to a statement from Trump-aligned Save America PAC. “They worked very well together in the last election and picked up at least 15 seats when most predicted it would be the opposite. They will do so again, and the work has already started.”
McCarthy released the following statement about the meeting.
“House Republicans and the Trump administration achieved historic results for all Americans. We were able to do this because we listened to and understood the concerns of our fellow citizens that had long been ignored. As a result, House Republicans defied the experts and the media by expanding our growing coalition across the country.
“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.
“A united conservative movement will strengthen the bonds of our citizens and uphold the freedoms our country was founded on.”
The Palm Beach meeting was arranged after Trump’s team heard McCarthy was fundraising in Florida as part of his effort to replace Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker after the 2022 elections.
