There has been a stunning development in the ongoing House speaker drama: Former President Donald Trump said he would accept the role of speaker if elected.
Both Kari Lake and Gen. Michael Flynn confirmed the news to The Western Journal.
“I talked to President Trump last night and told him he would be great and he should do it,” Lake told The Western Journal. “[I said] that he could take Congress from the most hated branch of [government] to the favorite branch.”
Lake’s pep talk appears to have worked, because Flynn told The Western Journal the following: “Trump says, ‘I will do it.’”
This would be a shocking turnaround for Trump, who has long supported Kevin McCarthy for speaker.
