Former President Donald Trump continues to brilliantly disrupt the Republican establishment as he plans a meeting with Senate Leadership at his south Florida resort.
Sen. Rick Scott, chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, revealed on Thursday that he plans to meet with Trump at Mar-a-Lago in an effort to take back a majority in 2022.
“I’ve talked to Trump. I’ve told him what we’re doing. He wants to be an additive; he wants to take back Senate’s majority in 2022,” Sen. Scott told a reporter.
Sen. Scott’s comments come as Trump finds himself in the middle of a Republican rift so deep, many say there’s no coming back. Currently the party is being split up between establishment RINOs and pro-MAGA lawmakers.
Earlier this week, Trump vowed to travel from his home in sunny Florida to the far-West state of Alaska to campaign against Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a noted RINO.

Trump has also found himself at odds with different Republican groups over using his likeness in their fundraising efforts.
His legal team slapped cease-and-desist letters demanding they stop using Trump’s name to garner higher donations. Instead, Trump urged Republican voters to support his own Save America PAC.

Trump has met with a small handful of allies in both chambers of Congress, but this meeting marks his first with Senate leadership.
Scott, a former Florida governor, endorsed Trump early on. The now-Senator gave Trump his endorsement way back in 2015.
Sen. Scott has remained loyal to Trump throughout the entire first term. In fact, he was one of only eight brave Senators to challenge Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.
