Democrats are trying to pull out all the stops.
President Trump would make an EXCELLENT house speaker—certainly better than Pelosi! The problem is that it may be a hell of a fight to get him there.
According to reports, Democrats led by Rep. Brendan Boyle are trying to pass a bill which would make it impossible for anyone who has not previously served in The House as a representative to become House Speaker.
This could easily backfire on Democrats—just like the two impeachments they tried to bring against President Trump!
It could end up being passed though, and if it does then I say Trump for Florida 2022. President Trump can absolutely win the honor to represent Florida, and then either become speaker at a later date or just run for President in 2024.
This is what Democrats are currently trying to do:
"That Donald Trump’s name would even be tossed around as a potential speaker in the house, should serve as an alarm bell. This legislation would serve as a check ag/those who seek to undermine the authority and responsibilities of the Speaker’s office.” https://t.co/JxJhtc4lZQ pic.twitter.com/7ZmWhkqakN

I prefer this: Republicans sweep the House and Senate in 2022, House elects Trump Speaker, impeachment of both Biden and Harris, real jail time. Trump becomes president and still gets to run in 2024 and 2028. (Speaker of House does not have to be a member of congress).

The Hill had the details on the proposed bill:
A new bill introduced on Monday by Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Pa.) would allow only an elected House member to serve as Speaker after former President Trump called the suggestion that he seek the gavel “so interesting.”
The Constitution does not directly state that the House Speaker must be a member of the chamber, but to date, the role has never been filled by an outsider.
Boyle argued that the statute should be made clear, even if electing someone outside of Congress to serve as Speaker remains a long shot. His bill, titled the Mandating That Being an Elected Member Be an Essential Requirement for Speakership Act, would explicitly limit eligibility to current House lawmakers.
Now dems want a bill to prevent Trump from becoming Speaker of Househttps://t.co/Ei48ZqcMBv

Joe Kent's plan:
Win back house and senate in 2022.
Appoint Trump Speaker of House.
Impeach Biden and Harris.
Trump is then President.

Conservative Brief went even further:
“Why not, instead of waiting for 2024, and I’m hoping you’ll run in 2024, but why not run in 2022 for the United States Congress? A House seat in Florida. Win big. Lead us to a dramatic landslide victory. Take the House by 50 seats,” the host said.
“Then you become the speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden,” he said. “You’ll wipe him out for this last two years.”
“That’s so interesting,” the 45th President of the United States said. “You know, it’s very interesting.”
An impeachment could not only thwart Biden’s agenda for his last two years but, if successful, could remove him from the White House.
