Former President Donald Trump reportedly met with Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Monday — just one day after Trump said in an interview that he would likely recommend changes in the RNC.

Trump and McDaniel met for a discussion at the GOP frontrunner’s Mar-a-Lago estate, two people familiar with the meeting told POLITICO. After the meeting, Trump posted on his Truth Social account, praising his “friend” McDaniel for her past work helping him win Michigan in 2016. He then wrote that he will soon make “recommendations for RNC Growth.”

“Things are looking great in the Presidential Race of 2024 against Crooked Joe Biden. We have Leads, in many cases substantial, in virtually every Head-to-Head Poll. The Primary seems to be over, but I’ll be going to South Carolina next week to finish off a very unpopular Candidate,” Trump began his post.

“On Thursday, I’m heading to Nevada for the Nevada Caucus, where there are 26 Delegates – Hopefully, we’ll get most of them,” he continued. “In my successful run in 2016, the State of Michigan really came through – First time in Decades that it was won by a Republican, and it was headed up by my friend Ronna McDaniel. Ronna is now Head of the RNC, and I’ll be making a decision the day after the South Carolina Primary as to my recommendations for RNC Growth.”

The South Carolina Republican primary will take place on February 24 as Trump seeks to secure another victory over former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, the last candidate standing in the way of Trump’s third nomination. Trump currently leads Haley in South Carolina by 27 points, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average.

Trump’s meeting with the RNC chairwoman and his follow-up post came just a day after Fox News aired an interview with the former president where Trump was asked by host Maria Bartiromo about McDaniel.

“I think she did great when she ran Michigan for me. I think she did OK, initially, in the RNC. I would say right now, there’ll probably be some changes made,” Trump said.

The former president has also criticized the RNC for hosting debates for which he declined to take the stage. Overall, the RNC organized four debates that featured GOP candidates who sought to unseat Trump as the party’s frontrunner.


McDaniel was handpicked by Trump to run the RNC after his 2016 victory over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but the RNC chairwoman has recently faced opposition after overseeing Trump’s 2020 election loss and an underwhelming performance by Republicans in the 2022 midterm elections.

McDaniel survived a heated re-election bid as she faced a challenge from attorney Harmeet Dhillon last January. While Dhillon gained some momentum during her attempt to oust McDaniel from leadership, McDaniel ultimately maintained the support of a majority of the RNC’s 168 voting members via a secret ballot vote.
