Trump to Return to Capitol Hill for First Time Since Jan 6 to Meet with Senate Republicans

  • last month
Former President Donald Trump will meet with House and Senate Republicans this week near the US Capitol building. The meeting with House Republicans will be held privately on Thursday. Trump is also scheduled to meet separately with Senate Republicans. This will be Trump's first return to Capitol Hill since his supporters attacked the building on January 6th, 2021 in an attempt to overturn the 2020 election results. Most Republicans have endorsed Trump as their party's presumptive 2024 presidential nominee, including Senate leader Mitch McConnell. The meetings come as Trump faces legal challenges including a recent conviction for tax fraud related to hush money payments.
