Rumors swirl over possible Trump speakership, sparking alarm among Dems

Though he has continued to tease a possible run to reclaim the White House in 2024, there has been much discussion afoot lately about another creative method by which former President Donald Trump could conceivably return to power, namely, by becoming speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, as Fox News has noted.

The concept of Trump as House leader seemed to take flight during a interview he had earlier this year with conservative radio host Wayne Allyn Root, who posited that the former president could easily run for Congress, secure the speaker’s gavel, and set about orchestrating the impeachment of current President Joe Biden, as The Hill reported at the time.

Trump told Root that the idea he floated was “so interesting,” and that while he had been told by others that he ought to run for the Senate, campaigning for a House seat and following the aforementioned plan of action “might be better,” according to the New York Post.

Given that the Constitution does not specify that the House speaker even needs to be a member of Congress to serve in that role, as Fox News noted, it has been suggested by some that he could bypass the need for campaigning altogether and simply ascend to the job.

Capitalizing on the potential popularity of the Trump-as-speaker concept, embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has been soliciting financial contributions by pledging to put the former president’s name in nomination for the role, writing in a fundraising email, “So just think how great it will feel when, after we take back the House and send [current Speaker Nancy] Pelosi back to the filth of San Francisco, we make our next Speaker of the House Donald J. Trump!”

While his remarks to Root on the subject made headlines for obvious reasons, Trump spokesman Jason Miller has since indicated that the former president “has zero desire to be speaker,” according to a new report in The Hill.

Even so, the mere idea of Trump as House speaker has so rattled congressional Democrats that on Monday, Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA) introduced a bill that would restrict eligibility for the role of speaker to include members of Congress only, as The Hill noted.

“The Speaker of the U.S. House is second in the United States presidential line of succession. That Donald Trump’s name would even be tossed around as a potential speaker in the people’s house, should serve as an alarm bell that our current requirements need to be amended in the name of protecting our nation and our democracy,” Boyle argued in a statement.

Though it appears clear that Trump has no intention of seriously seeking the speaker’s gavel, the decision by Rep. Boyle to take swift action to try and statutorily foreclose the possibility just goes to show how deeply entrenched the specter of former president remains in the addled minds of those permanently in the grips of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

I just want Pres. Trump to be in office again and get this country back where it was 7 months ago. Gas and food is out of control, building materials have Sky rocketed. Dems want the to happen so that ppl will depend on them for everything. They want to turn this country into a Communist country and I’m not for that. They need to be stopped.

Do you have a way to stop them? I don’t but I agree they need to be stopped. More audits need to be done and prove Biden did not win the last election and kick him out and let Trump back in where he belongs.

President Trump was the winner of the 2020 election. He has been the greatest President during my lifetime with President Reagan a close second. We must re-instate President Trump back into the White House as the President he truly won as soon as possible to “save America.”
