Rep. Brain Babin, who is one of the members of the Republican Study Committee who had a meeting with former President Donald Trump at his golf resort in New Jersey on Tuesday night refused to comment about whether or not Trump would be for sure running for a second term come 2024, but did state that he’s energized.
“I learned that we’ve still got a feisty former president that is ready to defend himself and defend America,” the Texas Republican, who paid Trump a visit along with about twelve other members of the GOP, stated during an interview on Newsmax’s “Wake Up America,” about the meeting, coming after a raid at his Florida estate. “He was energized. He was fired up.”
Here are more details on this meeting from Newsmax:
Trump is also “greatly disturbed by what’s happening in America today since he lost and vacated the White House,” said Babin. “I think that the Democrats are having an all-out assault on President Trump. They fear him. They hate him. They’re going to try to destroy him in any way they can.”
However, none of what has been alleged in the past five-and-a-half years, “all of the false fake news” has not come to pass, as “none of it has been true,” said Babin.
“They’re still doing it with Jan. 6, and now with this inexcusable raid by the FBI on his home in Florida,” he said.
But when asked if what’s been happening has galvanized Trump’s plans, Babin replied that Trump is “not a happy camper about what happened to him.”
“He’s very concerned about the direction of America under the Biden administration and the radical Democrats,” said Babin. “I can tell you that [but] I’m not going to make any announcements or anything like that. But I can tell you he is very, very energized. That’s all I can tell you.”
Babin stated during the interview that it “scares” him that the FBI could just waltz into the president’s home, while he’s not even there, and take things, as this is the first time in the history of our country that a president has had his home raided “by the administration of his former opponent and his possible future opponent.”
“If a radical Democrat regime can do this to our former president, they can do it to all of us and will,” Babin went on to say. “Everything they’ve tried to throw at him has been proven false, and the Biden administration has inappropriately weaponized the Department of Justice and the FBI.”

The Texas Republican also promised that there’s going to be a whole lot of Oversight Committee meetings when and if Republicans take over the house this November.
“I think this is bad for our great republic,” he concluded. “I think it puts us in jeopardy for the peaceful transfer of power … we’ve got to make sure that our elections are honest and full of integrity, and so that’s what we need to do.”
