Donald Trump took his time before weighing in on the vote for House Speaker but now he has endorsed Republican leader Kevin McCarthy for the job. Trump took to Truth Social and posted, "Some really good conversations took place last night, and it’s now time for all of our GREAT Republican House Members to VOTE FOR KEVIN, CLOSE THE DEAL, TAKE THE VICTORY.” Trump then took this as an opportunity to compare McCarthy to Mitch McConnell, whom he really doesn’t like. He posted, “if Republicans are going to fight, we ought to be fighting Mitch McConnell and his domineering, China loving BOSS, I mean wife, Coco Chow.” It’s obvious that Trump doesn’t personally care about Kevin McCarthy and before these Truth Social posts, he was likely not even concerned about whether he’d become the Speaker. But now that he has gone out on a limb by endorsing McCarthy, he must desperately want him to get the job in order to make himself still look like the kingmaker of the Republican Party.
