Trump Breaks Silence On McCarthy And House Speaker Vote

Former President Trump broke his silence Wednesday morning on the ongoing speaker election in the House. After three attempted votes Tuesday, the House was called to a close without a Speaker. Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican Leader from California, has remained the top Republican choice for the Speakership though he has faced some opposition as a few Republicans believe he isn’t the right candidate. In the first vote Tuesday, McCarthy received 203 votes, followed by 203 in the second vote, and 202 in the third vote. Not leaving much hope for Wednesday’s meeting.

In a Truth Social post, Trump broke his silence and discussed the Republican leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, California. Trump mentioned how he would be the best choice – giving McCarthy his continued support. He mentioned that this would be an embarrassing defeat as Democrats remained united in giving all of their votes to Rep. Hakeem Jefferies, D-NY., in each of Tuesday’s three voting cycles. Though many Republicans in the House still seem to oppose McCarthy for the position.

I can’t believe the Republican Party… right now they are an embarrassment to our party for not voting for Kevin McCarthy as “Speaker of the House”. We finally got rid of a Democrat and you possibly want another one in again to continue to ruin our country!!! Wow!!!! Really!!!????
I guess the Republicans want America to be a Socialist, Marxist and Communist Country!!! You folks make me not to ever want to vote or help out any of you!!! Wake Up America and do the right thing before it’s too late!!! This is exactly why our country is in the shape it is in… What An Embarrassment!!!
