MAR-A-LAGO MEETUP: Trump, Johnson, NRCC Chair Meet to Discuss Securing GOP Victories

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.20.24

Former President and 2024 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump met with House Speaker Mike Johnson and NRCC Chair Richard Hudson at Mar-a-Lago over President’s Day weekend to discuss growing the GOP majority in the House.

Speaker Johnson’s office confirmed the meeting in a statement.

“Speaker Johnson met with President Trump in Florida on Monday to discuss growing the majority and securing Republican victories up and down the ballot in November,” Johnson campaign spokesman Greg Steele told Fox News Digital.

From Fox News:

Attending the meeting with Johnson was Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the House GOP’s campaign arm. They were in Florida for the House GOP leadership’s annual retreat.

The NRCC did not respond to a request for the group’s own readout of the meeting. A Trump spokesperson also did not respond to a request for comment.

House Republican leaders have made an unprecedented show of unity around Trump as he seeks the GOP nomination for president. Johnson released a video earlier this month calling on fellow Republicans to coalesce around Trump.

“Following victories in Iowa, New Hampshire, the US Virgin Islands, and Nevada, it is time for Republicans to unite behind President Trump, so we can focus on ending the disastrous Biden presidency and growing our majority in Congress,” he said in the short clip.

“I am convinced he’s going to be the next president of the United States, and I am very much looking forward to that happening.”

Both Johnson and Hudson have endorsed Trump for president.

Meanwhile, Trump challenger Nikki Haley is committed to staying in the race, telling supporters on Tuesday that “Some of you, perhaps a few of you here in the media, came here today to see if I’m dropping out of the race. Well, I’m not – far from it,” Haley said. “I’m running for president because we have a country to save.”
