According to recent reports, the Republican Study Committee will meet with Former President Trump at his New Jersey resort to discuss the direction of the Republican Party and conservative agenda moving forward.
Rep. Jim Banks, chairman of the Committee announced the meeting on his twitter account, saying:
“At Republican Study Committee, we’ve worked tirelessly to develop the consensus conservative agenda for the future of the GOP, and that agenda is the Trump agenda,”

Trump has relocated to his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey since previously residing In Palm Beach at his Mar-a-Lago resort immediately upon exiting Washington D.C.
Unlike Biden, Trump is keeping his health in mind before committing to another White House Run. He’s indicated that a 2024 campaign is possible if he remains in good health for the next three years.
Banks feels the Party’s goals should mirror those of Former President Trump’s if Republicans hope to maintain the immense voter base that boarded the Trump Train beginning in 2015 when he emerged on the political scene. The Republican Party is currently focusing all of its resources on regaining a House an Senate majority with the help of the Donald Trump.
The group recently proposed a federal budget that aims to create an economic surplus by 2026. Their goal is is to cut nearly $15 trillion in federal spending and lower taxes by $1.9 trillion — a path paved by Trump during his first term.
But fiscal conservatism is not the only issue for the Republican Study Committee. Banks noted that the group has sought ways to focus on more than just economic and pro-life policies, bringing in China and immigration issues to the mix, which were the main vocal points of the Trump administration.
