Earlier today Trump endorsed Kevin McCarthy failed three times to win the vote for US Speaker of the House.
Kevin McCarthy lost the third vote for House Speaker on Tuesday afternoon with 20 Republicans voting for Rep. Jim Jordan.
The winning Republican can only afford to lose four votes! He must reach 218 votes to win the Speakership.
It appears that Republican ‘rebels’ have coalesced around Jim Jordan.
And GAETZ, who initially voted for Biggs for speaker, now nominates JORDAN.
On Tuesday night President Donald Trump declined to say whether he will continue to endorse Kevin McCarthy for Speaker of the House.
Garrett Haake from NBC News tweeted this out moments ago.
Garrett Haake: EXCLUSIVE: Former President Trump declined to say if he’s sticking by his endorsement of Kevin McCarthy for speaker tonight, telling me in a brief phone interview he’s had calls all day asking for support, and “We’ll see what happens. We’ll see how it all works out.” When I asked directly if he was sticking by McCarthy, who did not clinch the gavel today after three floor votes, Mr. Trump told me “we’ll see what happens,” and ended our conversation.
