Trump recently did an interview with conservative talker Wayne Allyn Root, who had an interesting idea.
Root suggested that Trump should run for a House seat in Florida, then become Speaker of the House and lead an impeachment against Biden.
Trump said he thought it was a very interesting idea!
The Hill reports:
‘So interesting’: Trump pitched on idea to run for House, become Speaker
Former President Trump on Friday called a proposal that he run for the House in 2022 to try to win the speaker’s gavel “interesting,” though the chances of him actually doing so remain low.
Trump was asked about the proposal by far-right radio host Wayne Allyn Root on Friday after Steve Bannon, a former adviser to the ex-president, floated the idea.
“That’s so interesting,” Trump said.
“Yeah, you know it’s very interesting,” Trump added, saying that others had suggested he run for Senate. “But you know what, your idea might be better. It’s very interesting.”

A left wing group called ‘Right Wing Watch’ put the clip on Twitter. Watch:

The left must be taking this very seriously because even Newsweek covered it:
Even if Trump chose to run for a House seat in 2022, he would have to win that race and Republicans would have to take control of the House of Representatives for him to have a shot at becoming speaker of the legislative chamber. Currently, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, is seen as the frontrunner to become speaker if GOP candidates successfully flip the House in the midterm elections.
Notably, Trump also suggested in a Friday statement he does plan to run for the presidency again in the future. After Facebook announced Trump will remain suspended from the social media platform until 2023, the former president released a statement saying he’d no longer have Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg over for dinner at the White House.
Can you even imagine if this happened? The left would go absolutely bonkers.
