The Republican Party’s governing body is set to offer its “undivided support” for Donald Trump and his “effective presidency,” lending its backing to the president and his re-election campaign.

The Republican National Committee’s resolutions committee unanimously approved the measure Wednesday at a winter meeting in New Mexico, clearing the way for its passage before the full membership Friday.

The expression of support comes as Trump’s re-election campaign is taking steps to scare off any potential primary challenger in 2020.

President Trump tweeted on Wednesday: “Great unity in the Republican Party. Want to, once and for all, put an end to stoppable crime and drugs! Border Security and Wall. No doubt!”

“The party is frustrated by what is perceived to be biased and unfair coverage from the mainstream media. This coverage encourages challengers and may be giving the false hope that the party or grassroots might not be there for him,” former RNC member Saul Anuzis said in explaining why resolution was going to move.

“This is an RNC that was not that pro-Trump going through the last nominating process. They have virtually all come on board and I believe are unanimously behind him,” added Anuzis, who keeps in touch with his old colleagues on the committee.
