It’s only been a week since he left office and Donald Trump is already making plans for his next steps.
He is, no doubt, the man with a plan.
Trump met with House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday to discuss a plan for republicans to take back the House in 2022.
McCarthy said it was a “very good and cordial” meeting, where he welcomed Trump’s support in promoting GOP House candidates in the next election, Fox News reports.
“House Republicans and the Trump administration achieved historic results for all Americans,” he said in a statement. “We were able to do this because we listened to and understood the concerns of our fellow citizens that had long been ignored.”
“Today, President Trump committed to helping elect Republicans in the House and Senate in 2022,” he continued. “A united conservative movement will strengthen the bonds of our citizens and uphold the freedoms our country was founded on.”
“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 the 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.”
Despite losing the Senate and White House, republicans managed to flip a whopping 13 House seats from blue to red. And, they could pick up a 15th seat in New York in a race between republican Claudia Tenney and democrat Anthony Brandisi that has yet to be decided, Fox News reports. Democrats hold a slim 221-211 advantage in the House, putting republicans in a good spot to pick up seats during the midterms, which traditionally favor the party opposite the president.
McCarthy shared a promising message following the meeting.
“United and ready to win in ‘22,” he tweeted.

Despite the fallout from the Capitol riot on January 6, McCarthy’s meeting with Trump signifies that republicans simply aren’t ready to sever all ties with Trump. Though there are some outliers, a majority of republican leaders in Congress have rejected impeaching the president, after letting the dust settle.
