Trump reveals whether he will attempt to become the House speaker

Recently, there have been rumors circulating that former President Donald Trump is looking to become the speaker of the House of Representatives. Trump addressed those rumors on Monday.

The Washington Times reports Trump as putting an end to those rumors by saying that he has never considered the possibility of becoming the House Speaker. 

“I have seen talk about that, but it is nothing that I have ever considered,” Trump said during an interview Monday with Real America’s Voice. 

Background

It was Trump himself who earlier this month gave rise to speculation that he could be looking to become the next House speaker, should Republicans win back the House in the 2022 midterm elections, a possibility that is looking promising.

During an interview that he did with conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root, Trump was asked about the possibility of becoming the House Speaker. The possibility had, prior to this interview, been suggested by Trump’s former adviser Steve Bannon.

“That’s so interesting,” Trump said in response.

Trump went on to say that others have suggested that it might be a good idea for him to run for a seat in the U.S. Senate. Trump, however, said, “you know what, your idea [to become House Speaker] might be better.” He added, “It’s very interesting.”

“He wants to be speaker”

Speculation about Trump becoming the next House Speaker grew even more with a recent comment made by House Minority Leader Keven McCarthy (R-CA). McCarthy is the man who is expected to become the next House speaker should the Republicans win in 2022.

During an interview on Fox News, McCarthy said, “I talk to President Trump many times. He tells me he wants to be speaker, and I think he should be president.”

Subsequently, however, a spokesperson for McCarthy clarified that this is not what he meant to say. Rather, that spokesperson said that McCarthy meant to say that Trump “wants ‘me’ to be speaker.”

It’s settled

So, now we know straight from Trump that he will not be seeking the House speakership.

During the interview, what Trump did not clarify, though, was whether he intends to run for the U.S. presidency in 2024. It appears as though his supporters are going to have to wait a bit longer for an answer to that question.
