DONALD Trump met with Republican leaders for strategy talks on Thursday as he stokes rumors he is eyeing a presidential run in 2024.
The Republican Study Committee (RSC) huddled with Trump at his New Jersey golf club in Bedminister to discuss the party’s policy agenda and make plans to regain the majority in Congress.5Donald Trump has hinted at a 2024 presidential bidCredit: EPA
RSC Chairman Jim Banks told the New York Post that Trump's potential presidential bid was not discussed but that members of the group are supportive of his 2024 ambitions.
The agenda they presented to Trump was reportedly modeled on his own policies while in office.
Banks said that the group's policy commits to furthering Trump’s agenda and the former president said he would hit the campaign trail for candidates following his messaging ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
The Indiana lawmaker added that ten of the RSC’s members met with Trump, including task force chairs and members of the group’s steering committee.5Trump has committed to heading on the campaign trail next yearCredit: AP 5The committee has modeled its agenda off Trump MAGA policiesCredit: Getty Images - Getty
“We spent nearly two hours with President Trump who’s in great spirits,” Banks told the Post.
“We talked for most of the time about the work that the Republican Study Committee is doing to define the agenda for the future course of the Republican Party, which is fighting for the Trump agenda.
“We talked about our election integrity bill, The Save Democracy Act, which he was very supportive of and we talked about what we’ve done to define immigration moving forward.”
The RSC is the largest conservative caucus in Congress and Banks has been pushing to expand its role in deciding GOP messaging.
Trump allegedly called Banks the “type of new leader we need,” a source told the Post.
The congressman has been among the loudest voices calling for the Republican party to lean into Trumpism as the former president’s critics urge the GOP to shift away from his policies.5Trump was said to be in 'good spirits' during the meetingCredit: Getty Images - Getty
“We believe we take back the majority by focusing on the Trump agenda, and President Trump plays a big role in that,” Banks argued.
“He’s obviously planning to go out and hit the road and campaign for candidates who share our vision, and we were excited to talk to him about that.”
The RSC has reportedly met with a number of other potential 2024 Republican candidates as Trump hints at his bid.
They include former Vice President Mike Pence, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Others have reached out to the group with a potential bid in mind, the Post reports.
During a speech in North Carolina last Saturday, his first televised remarks since February, Trump again hinted that he will run in the 2024 presidential election.
He vowed to take back the country from “radical” Biden as he claimed the US is being "destroyed and humiliated" on the world stage.5Many Republicans believe Trump could be reinstatedCredit: AP
Trump also vowed to take back the White House and the Senate "sooner than you think" in a video posted ahead of his comeback speech on Saturday night.
The comments came as it was revealed that almost a third of Republicans believe a farfetched conspiracy theory that Trump will be "reinstated" as president by the end of the year.
The survey, conducted by Politico/Morning Consult, found that 29 percent of self-identified Republicans believe it will be very or somewhat likely that Trump will reassume the role of the commander-in-chief by the year's end.
All in all, 19 percent of the 1,990 registered voters surveyed for the poll said it was either “somewhat likely” or “very likely” Trump will be reinstated.
"That's actually something that appears to be resonating fairly deeply with Republican voters,' Morning Consult senior editor Cameron Easley said in an on SiriusXM.
Yet some Republicans are impatient to have Trump back in office and don’t believe that he should wait until 2024 to run again.

They are pushing for Trump to replace Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker so he could potentially impeach President Joe Biden.
Trump would technically not need to be elected to Congress to take on the role as it is not required by the constitution but all previous House Speakers have been members of the House.

Taylor took to her Instagram Stories to share various shoutouts from her friends and family as she celebrated her 27th birthday.
However, amid the birthday messages, Taylor posted a photo kissing her baby daddy.
She wrote over the snap: "I love you."
The romantic picture comes just days after Teen Mom fans speculated that the pair, who met on Ex on the Beach, had parted ways after one viewer claimed Cory, 30, has been "weirdly quiet on social media."9One person noticed Cory has been quite on social media lately, and that Taylor didn't include him in a present to a friendCredit: Instagram 9The two met on MTV's Ex on the BeachCredit: MTV 9They share 1-year-old daughter Mila togetherCredit: Instagram
Taylor also failed to mention Cory in a present to a friend.
Reddit users rushed with their thoughts, as one person wrote: "I wouldn’t be surprised, Corey will never be a one woman man."
Another chimed in with: "Cory is off filming The Challenge so that’s probably why he’s been quiet on SM but that is very sus that she only signed it from her and Mila."9Cory was also previously slammed for filming The Challenge and leaving Mila behind - however, he was able to make it to her birthdayCredit: MTV 9The reality star is also a father to 4-year-old daughter RyderCredit: Instagram
Cory was previously slammed for leaving his youngest child behind while he films the popular competition series.
"Love that he'll quarantine for the challenge but not for his immunocompromised and infant children," one person sarcastically wrote at the time.
Another person was more harsh, as they simply called Cory a "loser" for his decision, while one user claimed, "He flew out & filmed a show the week after he found out Ryder was his daughter, so I’m really not surprised."
