As per US Constitution, there is a possibility that former U.S. President Donald Trump can potentially run for the position of House Speaker. In fact, Kevin McCarthy’s ouster paved the way for Donald Trump’s resurgence in US Politics.
This is because, in US politics, the Constitution doesn’t explicitly require the Speaker to be a current member of the House of Representatives.
The development gained attention on a Wednesday when former US President Donald Trump openly expressed his interest in competing for the role of House Speaker.
What makes this announcement particularly significant is that it follows the ousting of fellow Republican lawmaker Kevin McCarthy from the Speaker’s position. McCarthy’s removal from the role was orchestrated by a faction of staunch conservatives within the Republican Party. This event marks an unprecedented and historic occurrence in US Politics.
In recent weeks, former U.S. President Donald Trump, who is currently the leading candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, has been in the spotlight for several notable actions and statements.
- Trump’s Call for Biden’s Impeachment: Donald Trump publicly called for the impeachment of Democratic President Joe Biden. He cited his own past impeachments as part of the rationale behind this call.
- Advocating Government Shutdown: Trump also urged his fellow Republicans to support a government shutdown. His aim was to use this tactic to potentially slow down some of the legal cases he’s currently facing.
- Threats Against Media Access: Additionally, Trump suggested that if he were to be reelected to the White House, he would explore measures that could restrict NBC News and MSNBC’s access to the airwaves. He framed this in response to what he saw as news coverage akin to “Country Threatening Treason.”
Donald Trump’s rhetoric and actions have always been characterized by toughness and aggression, especially when dealing with matters related to crime and his adversaries.
However, his recent escalation in rhetoric is noteworthy for its resemblance to the uncompromising tactics often associated with authoritarian regimes.
This includes leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, whom Trump has occasionally expressed admiration for.
