Trump slams House Republicans for infighting, speakership ouster

As Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was being ousted from the speakership in a historic, unprecedented vote, former President Donald Trump raised questions about the Republican Party. 

According to the Washington Examiner, Trump said what many were presumably thinking and have been for a long time.

"Why is it that Republicans are always fighting among themselves, why aren’t they fighting the Radical Left Democrats who are destroying our Country?" he wrote on his Truth Social platform.

Trump was allied with both McCarthy and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), making the situation a little awkward for the two Republicans.

The Examiner noted:

Trump has been a supporter of McCarthy for House speaker, backing him in January during his prolonged fight for the speakership. House Democrats and eight Republicans voted in favor of Rep. Matt Gaetz's (R-FL) motion to vacate the speakership. Gaetz has been a fierce supporter of Trump.

Trump's question resonated with many, especially as Americans struggle as a result of the policies brought forth by radical Democrats. Many believe the energy spend ousting the speaker could have been directed at what some perceive as more important issues.

As Republicans scramble to narrow down a shortlist of who could take McCarthy's place, the former president was mentioned as a potential candidate for the speakership by several House Republicans.

"We only have one choice for Speaker: President Donald J. Trump His policies stopped the globalists and communists more than anyone else. He is the leader of the Republican Party and the only person we can trust to Save America," Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green wrote, a staunch Trump supporter.

For his part, Trump was asked about the possibility of running for the powerful House leadership position.

"A lot of people have been asking me about becoming Speaker. I'm 40-50 points ahead in the presidential race, but if I can help them in the process of running, I'll do it," he said as he left the courthouse in New York City regarding his civil lawsuit trial.

Social media users speculated at the possibility of a Speaker Donald Trump situation.

"Imagine the liberal snowflake heads exploding if this happens," X user Vince Langman wrote.
