Donald Trump responded to calls about him possibly becoming House Speaker after the ousting of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

“A lot of people have been calling me about speaker. All I can say is we’ll do whatever is best for the country and the Republican Party,” Trump told reporters Wednesday.


Fox News host Sean Hannity said Tuesday night on his show:

“Sources telling me at this hour that some House Republicans have been in contact with and have started an effort to draft former President Donald Trump to be the next Speaker and I have been told that President Trump might be open to helping the Republican Party at least in the short term if necessary.”


Sean Hannity asked Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) about the possibility of Donald Trump being an interim House Speaker.


“I want him to be President of the United States,” Jordan replied.

“He’s still going to be running for president,” Hannity said.

“That’s where we need him is at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But if he wants to be Speaker, then that’s fine too,” Jordan said.


Multiple congressional Republicans voiced their support for Donald Trump to become House Speaker.

Rep. Troy E. Nehls (R-TX) said on X he nominates Donald Trump to be House Speaker.


Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) voiced her support for Trump as Speaker.

“The only candidate for Speaker I am currently supporting is President Donald J. Trump. He will end the war in Ukraine. He will secure the border. He will end the politically weaponized government. He will make America energy independent again. He will pass my bill to stop transgender surgeries on kids and keep men out of women’s sports. He will support our military and police. And so much more! He has a proven 4 year record as President of the United States of America. He received a record number of Republican votes of any Republican Presidential candidate! We can make him Speaker and then elect him President! He will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!” Greene said.

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) also expressed support for Donald Trump as House Speaker.

In related news, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) emerged as a House Speaker candidate Wednesday morning.
