(RightIsRight.co) – HAPPENING NOW: Putting his political credibility on the line, former President Donald J. Trump, who is seeking the presidency once again in 2024, just called on all Republican members of the United States House of Representatives to fall in line and elect Congressman Kevin McCarthy of California as the next Speaker of the House.
Here is what Trump posted to Truth Social:
As the Daily Caller notes about what took place yesterday:
“Ten Republicans voted for Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs during the first ballot, while nine others voted for non-nominated candidates. The vote was then forced to a second ballot for the first time in 100 years. During the second ballot, McCarthy received 203 Republican votes, with all 19 opposing Republicans casting their vote for Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, who gave a speech endorsing McCarthy ahead of the second vote.
“Florida Rep. Byron Donalds voted for Jordan in the third ballot after previously voting for McCarthy.”
As of publication time, there is no indication one way or the other as to whether or not the 19 GOP members opposed to McCarthy will change their votes because of Trump’s statement and request.
