McCarthy, Trump Meet to Discuss ‘Taking Back the House’ in 2022

"You have the Trump wing of the party, wanting to purge those who have stood up to the president's lies, (and) you have the establishment wing of the party wanting to purge the party of Trump", former Republican congressman Carlos Curbelo told MSNBC.

With Mr Trump impeached for an unprecedented second time, and the Senate girding for his trial, it was unclear how much political clout he would retain beyond his presidency. The mob subsequently breached the Capitol and forced lawmakers to evacuate, in a riot that left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer.

House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy signaled continuing loyalty to Donald Trump on Thursday after a meeting with the former president at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Republicans tasked with taking back the Senate in 2022 are preparing for a contentious primary season, fearful that former President Donald Trump could use his popularity inside the party to back candidates who could struggle in statewide races.

Wendy went on to say, "he'll deny it maybe not", and that Method Man is still very "angry at her" for "telling the truth". Audiences will not only see her career successes played out on the silver screen but also her experienced hardships.

McCarthy said on January 13 that Trump "bears responsibility for [the] attack on Congress by mob rioters", although he subsequently appeared to backtrack from those comments.

According to a readout of the meeting released by Trump's new office, the meeting was "very good and cordial" and Trump "agreed to work with Leader McCarthy on helping the Republican Party to become a majority in the House".

"Democrats, on the other hand, have only put forward an agenda that divides us - such as impeaching a President who is now a private citizen", McCarthy continued. Of the 34 Senate races in the country next year, Republicans will be tasked with defending 20 seats, compared to 14 for Democrats. Democrats' most endangered seats will be in Georgia and Arizona, two states where the party won special elections in 2020.
