Former US President Donald Trump.
Ongoing attempts to elect the Speaker of the US Congress House of Representatives and replace Nancy Pelosi, which ultimately upset everyone, have not yet been successful: some Republicans are blocking Kevin McCarthy’s candidacy.
Alternatively, one of the congressmen nominated Donald Trump for this position.
Democrats rejoice: The Republican majority in the House of Representatives could not come to a common denominator. Despite the numerical superiority over the Democrats (222 congressmen to 212), members of the Republican Party are unable to start the work of the lower house of Congress, effectively stopping all legislative processes in the country.
The main Republican candidate, Kevin McCarthy, 57, intends to try his luck for the seventh time, but nothing promises a victory yet: 20 party members belonging to the wing of Donald Trump, apparently, they are not going to vote. for him in the future.
Florida Congressman Matt Goetz has nominated Republican leader Donald Trump for Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. And this despite the calls from the former head of the White House to group around the figure of McCarthy and start doing his job now.
The fact is that some representatives of the lower house consider Kevin McCarthy an unsuitable candidate for the role of speaker, they call him too soft, if not a “secret Democrat.” However, McCarthy himself denies any accusation against him and, it seems, is going to fight for the chair until the end.
