Senate Republicans will meet with Donald Trump on July 7, less than two weeks before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.  

According to a GOP aide, the meeting with Trump, the party's presumptive presidential nominee, will take place at the National Republican Senatorial Committee's office a few blocks from the Capitol. Trump is also scheduled to meet with House Republicans next Thursday.
