Jul 8, 2021 Abou

The GOP leaders attending the White House’s first dinner at a Twin Peaks eatery are set to include President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, sources told The Hill.

The White House is expected to announce the guests at a later date, a senior administration official said.

The meeting, which is being held on a Monday afternoon, will include Trump, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), House Speaker Paul Ryan (R, Wis.), House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D, Md.) and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R.-Texas).

Sources also said the dinner will include House Speaker John Boehner (R.I.), Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R.), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.).

It will be the first dinner for the White Senate and White House.

The White House did not respond to requests for comment on the guests.

The first White House dinner was held in January after President Trump’s inauguration and was attended by Vice President Mike Pence and Vice President Joe Biden, according to the official White House schedule.

The event drew widespread criticism for being overshadowed by the impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump.

Trump’s impeachment led to a backlash from liberals and liberals groups and led to the cancellation of the first White Senate Dinner in February.
