Trump meets Republican Study Committee leaders to discuss policy agenda, path to majority

Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Banks and members of the conservative caucus’ leadership team huddled with former President Trump to discuss their policy agenda and path to the majority in 2023 on Thursday, the Indiana Republican told The Post in an interview. 

Ten of the RSC’s members, including task force chairs and members of the group’s steering committee, attended the gathering, where Banks said they laid out their policy vision, which was modeled after Trump’s agenda while he was in office. 

“We spent nearly two hours with the President with President Trump who’s in great spirits. 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,” Banks said. “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.” 

Banks has looked to expand the RSC’s — which is the largest conservative caucus in Congress — role in the House GOP’s messaging efforts, attempting to offer contrasting policy proposals to the Biden administration ahead of the next election cycle. 

According to one source in the room, Trump referred to the Indiana Republican as the “new type of leader we need in the party.”
