Former President Donald Trump liked the idea when the host of a radio show on Friday, June 4, suggested he run for House Speaker in 2022, the very position that one of his primary Democrat adversaries, Nancy Pelosi, has been holding since 2011.
The idea was first introduced in mid-February by former White House strategist Steve Bannon. By taking the Speaker’s gavel, the former president could have his justice with President Joe Biden by launching impeachment against him.
On Friday, Right Wing Watch host Wayne Allyn Root repeated the scenario, suggesting a quicker path back to power instead of waiting for the 2024 presidential election.
“Why not, instead of waiting for 2024, and I’m hoping you’ll run in 2024, but why not run in 2022 for the United States Congress? A House seat in Florida. Win big. Lead us to a dramatic landslide victory. Take the House by 50 seats,” the far-right radio host suggested.
“Then you become the speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden,” Root continued. “You’ll wipe him out for this last two years.”
“That’s so interesting,” the 45th president entertained Root’s suggestion, recalling he has been recommended to become a Senator. “But you know what, your idea might be better. It’s very interesting.”
However, even though Trump seemed to love the posibility, it does not seem like he would seriously consider doing it.
Trump served as U.S. president for one term since his triumph in 2017. During his four short years in the Oval Office, his administration has gained loyal advocates and core enemies, with most of his rivalries primarily Democrats.
The 2020 election results kicked Trump off the commander-in-chief position while his “Make America Great Again” promise was still processing.
While the mainstream media, colluding with Big Tech, has tried to shut him and his election fraudulence claims down, many proponents of Trump’s leadership have not discarded their hopes for his return to political power.
Trump’s prospects for becoming the House Speaker are improbable since, like The Hill reports, he would have to think of a strategic district-run when the redistricting process is set out.
By far, it is more likely that Trump would run for president again in 2024, the decision which in late May he has said would be determined by his health conditions in the time to come.
