Trump may have put his weight behind Kevin McCarthy’s primary race in California, but the former President made himself very clear that he has not endorsed anyone, including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), for speaker of the House.
During a recent interview with Wayne Allyn Root of VRAinsider.com, Trump had to interrupt the conservative talk show host after he said Trump endorsed McCarthy for speaker. “No, I haven’t,” Trump said. “No, no, no. I haven’t,” he added through some cross-talk. “No, I endorsed him in his race. But I haven’t endorsed anybody for speaker.”
Yes, Trump endorsed McCarthy in his reelection bid in California’s 20th Congressional District just two weeks ago, despite McCarthy’s recent attacks against the former President over the January 6th Capitol Riots. He made no mention, however, of the House speaker role but did call McCarthy a “strong and fearless leader of the House Republican Conference.”
When asked if he would run for president, Trump stuck to his common response that people will be “happy” with what happens.
