Trump entertains the idea of running for House speaker in 2022

Former President Donald Trump continues to command significant support within the Republican Party, with many ultimately hoping that he’ll make a third run for the White House in 2024.

However, according to The Hill, Trump recently discussed his take on an unconventional avenue for returning to Washington, D.C., one that would involve making a run for the speaker of the House — which, given a particular set of circumstances, could cost current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) her powerful job. 

House Speaker Trump?

As The Hill reported, conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root asked the former president during a recent interview whether he would consider running for the House speakership position in the 2022 midterm election.

Trump responded by calling the prospect “very interesting,” admitting that while some have suggested he make a run for a U.S. Senate seat, he said that Root’s proposition “might be better.”

Former Trump White House adviser Steve Bannon had earlier appeared on Root’s show and brought up the idea of his former boss becoming the House speaker, which is what prompted Root to address the possibility directly with the former president.

The media outlet went on to point out that “a House run would be complicated for Trump” as he “would have to figure out what district to run in after the redistricting process is completed.”

In addition, the report noted that, so far, the former president has focused his energy on endorsing candidates for the 2022 midterm elections rather than laying the groundwork for a campaign of his own, adding that the U.S. Constitution does not specifically require that a House speaker be an elected member of Congress.

The polls don’t lie

The former president has dropped numerous hints that he’s all but signed up to make another run at the White House in 2024. The most recent example came in a statement that he issued after Facebook announced its intention to keep his suspension from its platforms in place for another two years.

“Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will all be business!” wrote Trump, according to The Hill.

Polling data indicates that the former president has a solid shot of winning the Republican party nomination, with a McLaughlin survey conducted last month revealing Trump to be the clear favorite.

The possibility that Trump could be nominated and then win the general election is not without historical precedent, as one of his processors, Former President Grover Cleveland, managed to pull off such a feat.

While Republicans are expected to win a House majority in 2022 — which means Pelosi’s time as speaker would end — if for some reason they don’t win, and in a scenario where Trump somehow manages to pull off winning a vote to be installed as speaker anyway, it would be quite a sight to witness Pelosi hand the gavel to a hypothetical House Speaker Donald Trump.
