Former President Donald Trump will meet with House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., and National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chair Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., next week in Florida, Axios reported.

Trump, the presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee, Johnson and Hudson will meet Monday at Mar-a-Lago to discuss November election plans, Axios said.

Republicans in the election will be trying to retain control of the House. They currently hold a 218-213 seat edge.

Johnson also is expected to be in attendance when Trump meets with Senate Republicans in a closed-door meeting this week.

Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, chair of the GOP conference, issued an invitation to Trump, who accepted.

“I believe it will be helpful to hear directly from President Trump about his plans for the summer and to also share our ideas for a strategic governing agenda in 2025,” Barrasso wrote to fellow Republican senators, NBC News reported.
