The meeting comes as Hill Republicans are struggling to notch a major legislative victory for Trump. GOP senators are openly expressing doubt their chamber can pass legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare. And Republicans in the White House and Congress are divided over key elements of a tax-reform plan. 

In the coming months, Republicans will also need to raise the debt ceiling and pass a government funding bill to avert a shutdown on Oct. 1, while tackling a number of other must-do items.
