Trump has had an uneasy relationship with congressional Republicans, particularly with Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.).
Ryan at first declined to endorse Trump after he became the party’s presumptive presidential nominee, but he came around earlier this month arguing Trump, if elected, would help House Republicans implement the policy agenda they are rolling out ahead of the convention in July.
But shortly after Ryan announced his endorsement, tensions with Trump flared again over his controversial comments that U.S. District Court Gonzalo Curiel has a conflict of interest in overseeing a civil case involving Trump University because he is of Mexican heritage and Trump has proposed building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Ryan called the comment “the textbook definition of a racist comment.” Trump later said his comments about Curiel were misconstrued.
Republicans this week are also facing questions about whether they support Trump’s plan to ban Muslims from entering the country, a stance he strongly reiterated following the mass shootings in Orlando on Sunday.
On Tuesday Ryan called for “a security test, not a religious test” for immigrants.
Ryan and other GOP leaders have stressed that the party needs to be united ahead of the November election if Republicans are to have any chance of winning the White House and keeping control of Congress.
The meeting next month will give members of the House GOP conference “the chance to meet with Mr. Trump; share their policy priorities, learn about his plans to unite the party; and get details about his plans to move America forward.,” the McMorris Rogers aide said.
