(FixThisNation.com) – The process of selecting the Speaker of the House plays a significant role in the presidential election, as stated by ex-President Donald Trump.
In a recent post on Truth Social, Trump expressed his willingness to provide temporary assistance in this process.
“I’m in the race for the presidency and lead other Republican candidates by 62 points. I’m also ahead of Joe Biden by 4 to 11 points, even with the challenges from the Democratic Party. Nonetheless, I’m committed to assisting in the selection of the next Speaker of the House, at least in the interim, until a worthy Republican Speaker is chosen. This individual will collaborate with an experienced President – that is, me – in our mission to uplift America once more.”
This statement followed a day after Trump refrained from dismissing the possibility of him serving as the House Speaker. He made this comment while attending the third day of a $250 million civil trial led by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
Regarding the Speaker’s role, Trump commented to the media, “Many have reached out to me about the Speaker’s position. My priority is the nation’s best interest and the well-being of the Republican Party. We’re fortunate to have a plethora of remarkable individuals.”
Soon after, Rep. Jim Jordan from Ohio made his intentions known about running for the Speaker’s position. Subsequently, other Republican House leaders, including Majority Leader Steve Scalise from Louisiana, also declared their candidacies.
It’s noteworthy that the Speaker of the House isn’t required to be a House member. Some have even shown interest in seeing ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich from Georgia assume this role again. Among other contenders is Rep. Kevin Hern from Oklahoma, who currently chairs the Republican Study Committee.
