• By Jordan Conradson

Per CNN:

Former President Donald Trump is meeting Thursday with his Republican congressional allies in the Washington, DC, neighborhood of Capitol Hill, his first visit since leaving office and since being convicted of a felony.

At Trump's first closed-door meeting, House Republicans feted him with a birthday celebration. (The former president's birthday is Friday). Trump is slated to meet with GOP senators later Thursday.

President Joe Biden, meanwhile, is overseas at the G7 summit in Puglia, Italy, and expected to speak later Thursday alongside Ukraine's president.

Biden and Trump, both of whom had already clinched their parties' presidential nominations, are gearing up for a rematch in November.
