Right-wing politicians and pundits are already suggesting that Donald Trump could be the next speaker of the House after Kevin McCarthy’s surprise ouster on Tuesday.
Alex Jones, a conspiracy theorist, Steve Bannon, a former Trump adviser, and Newsmax, a right-wing cable network, all said they think Trump should be the next Speaker.
“I think Donald Trump should be the litmus test for all these Republicans,” Jones said on InfoWars on Tuesday night. “With all the false accusations and all the false trials, how great would it be if Donald Trump was Speaker?”
The term “Nominate” was also trending on Elon Musk’s social media site, X, which used to be known as Twitter, and it was likely inspired by a viral tweet from Rep Troy Nehls, a Texas Republican who unofficially nominated the former President. Steube followed suit with his own tweet.
