Former President Donald Trump is slated to meet with the House GOP conference Thursday, according to two Republicans with direct knowledge of the planning.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee will address members at a Republican-only club on Capitol Hill just weeks ahead of the party’s convention. Trump has locked down support from most Republican House members.

The former president is expected to have other meetings with lawmakers this week, including with Senate Republicans. Senate GOP Conference Chair John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said they plan to talk about their “strategic governing agenda in 2025.”


The House gathering marks a critical moment for Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), who has repeatedly leaned on his relationship with Trump to both weather attacks from his right flank and push through tough legislation in the GOP’s narrow House majority.
