Trump Spotted With Controversial WWE Star

Donald Trump is being interviewed by Logan Paul.

Former president Donald Trump is seemingly planning a comeback to Washington on Thursday to meet with congressional Republicans near the U.S. Capitol, as the GOP attempts to present a united front and coalesce around a policy agenda heading into the November elections via Washinton Post.

The trip will be Trump’s first meeting with GOP lawmakers since he was labeled guilty on all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in his New York hush-money case, making Trump the first former U.S. president convicted of a crime, since the historic guilty verdict. However, it has come to light that the Republicans have largely fallen in line behind Trump, as he and President Biden continue to be locked in a tight race.

It will also be Trump’s first public visit to Capitol Hill since the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, in which a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol complex to stop the certification of Biden’s 2020 electoral win.

It is noted that Trump was not at the Capitol that day, his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, including his actions leading up to and during the attack, are at the heart of federal charges against him.

When asked Wednesday if he had spoken to Trump about committing to a peaceful transfer of power, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said “of course [Trump] respects that, and we all do.”

“We’re very excited to welcome President Trump back … There’s high anticipation here and great excitement, and I feel good,” Johnson said, later adding that GOP lawmakers were anxious to talk about plans after November and “bounce around ideas with [Trump] tomorrow.”

Trump is slated to meet first with House Republicans at 9:30 a.m. Thursday at the Capitol Hill Club — steps from the Capitol — followed by another meeting with Senate Republicans also very near the Capitol at 12:30 p.m.
