It has a pretty great ring to it doesn’t it?
Sources say that President Trump called the idea of running for House Speaker “interesting,” He has not yet made any concrete plans or anything, but others have put this idea out there before.
President Trump could run for House Speaker in 2022, and then run again for President in 2024. Pelosi would be removed, the swamp would continue to drain, and the path to a 2024 re-election campaign would be that much stronger.
President Trump could also NEVER run for re-election and choose to stay House Speaker forever…….just like Pelosi has done for years on end.
Either way, it’ll be pretty interesting if this happens!
Here is the latest on the potential bid for House Speaker:

Retweeting in light of Trump's interview today in which he found the idea of being Speaker "very interesting." Note, though he does not have win a House seat, doing so may make it easier for him to assume the position. He may do this. https://t.co/4IBgcukK3L

The Hill reports:
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.”
Trump has floated a potential comeback bid for the White House in 2024 since leaving office earlier this year, though speculation over a congressional campaign and an opportunity to lead the House has not gained significant traction.
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.

Been saying this for a while…Although I would think a President who has read the constitution would know it’s not necessary to be a member of Congress to be speaker. As a matter of fact if Republicans take the house next year, they could vote to make Trump the Speaker. https://t.co/6RnOVSpsSD

Newsmax pointed out:
The exact logistics for a House run would mean Trump would have to figure out in which district he would run. For now, the former president seems mainly interested in endorsing other congressional candidates rather than becoming one himself. Trump will also resume his rallies this summer, which could shed more light as to the next moves he wants to make.
According to GOP polling, Trump would be in a strong position to win the presidential nomination in 2024. And, in a statement condemning Facebook’s decision to ban him from the platform for two years, Trump hinted that he could run for another term in the White House.
“Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will all be business!” Trump stated.
