The members would have been pressed about Trump’s refusal to concede the presidential election to Democrat Joe Biden.
Most Republicans have offered support from Trump, who has made unsubstantiated allegations of fraud, many of which have already been thrown out in court.
Major news networks projected Biden as the winner of the election more than a week ago. Biden has leads of tens of thousands of votes in critical states.
Trump has mounted legal efforts calling for Pennsylvania to not certify its election results as Georgia heads to a hand recount.
Some Republican governors including Larry Hogan of Maryland and Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas have said that they believe Biden will be the next president, but the issue has been met with relative silence or flat-out resistance by members of the House and Senate GOP.
