Trump Becoming A House Speaker Is A Possibility

Published

For supporters of former president Donald Trump, 4 years of enduring this liberal-dominated era of Joe Biden would definitely feel like an eternity. Right now, all we can do is wait for 2024 until Trump gets the chance to run again for the highest position in the land.

For those who miss the presence of Trump in government however, the presidency is not the only way for us to get to see and hear him on a regular basis. There is a chance that he can be the speaker of the House when the new Congress begins on the 23rd of January, 2023. 

Well that is, if the former GOP standard bearer is interested in a position a tad lower than his previous job in the White House. Trump will be forced to adapt to the cramped living conditions in the provided quarters, which is far too inconvenient compared to his stay in the White House or his Trump Tower residence.

The idea of Trump assuming the house speakership came from the suggestion of GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, a loyal Trump ally. The Republicans only need to take control of the House in the 2022 midterms, which we assume will be a huge possibility.

Of course there are technicalities involved that still need much consideration, but the possibility of Trump holding a very important position in government is an exciting proposition. Running in the 21st Congressional District of Florida will be his first hurdle as he will face a formidable Democrat opponent in Rep. Lois Frankel who has a large following in the area. However, because the constitution does not inhibit House members to only run in the districts that they represent, Trump can represent another district as an outsider.

Earlier this month, conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root has already asked the former president about running for the Florida congressional seat in 2022. Trump was positive about the idea but didn’t clearly express his desire to tread that path.

“Why not instead of just waiting for 2024, and I’m hoping you run in 2024, but why not run in 2022 for the United States Congress, a House seat in Florida, win big, lead us to a dramatic landslide victory, taking the House by 50 seats, and then you become the Speaker of the House,” Root asked.

“You know, it’s very interesting. That’s so interesting. And people have said, run for the Senate, okay, run for the Senate, but you know what? Your idea might be better. It’s very interesting,” Trump answered.

If Trump becomes House speaker, he will be only the second president in American history to do so. The first one was president John Quincy Adams who served in the House for 18 years after his term as president.
