White House (Reuters) – On Wednesday, former Republican President Donald Trump endorsed Representative Kevin McCarthy and urged House Republicans to support the Californian’s candidature for the speakership.
Trump said on his social media account, “It’s time for all of our GREAT Republican House Members to VOTE FOR KEVIN, CLOSE THE DEAL, TAKE THE VICTORY.” “A great victory shouldn’t be turned into a massive defeat that is embarrassing. YOU DESERVE A CELEBRATION, SO NOW IS THE TIME. Just watch! Kevin McCarthy will perform admirably, if not even better than expected.”
