Trump would accept House speakership for a ‘short period’ while Republicans decide on a permanent replacement
Donald Trump has not commented on whether he would accept a short-term House speakership while Republicans decide on a permanent replacement. While some Republican lawmakers believe that Trump would be an excellent interim speaker, others have expressed doubts because of his lack of congressional experience. Trump has previously been vocal about his dissatisfaction with the Republican Party and its leadership in Congress, which could make his nomination difficult. Ultimately, it is up to the members of the House of Representatives to decide whether Trump should be considered for a speakership role.
