Newly crowned House Speaker Mike Johnson made it clear on Tuesday that he’s backing former President Donald Trump’s return to the White House.
“I have endorsed him wholeheartedly. Look, I was one of the closest allies that President Trump had in Congress,” Johnson (R-La.) told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “He had a phenomenal first term those first two years.”
“We brought about the greatest economic numbers in the history of the world, not just the country, because his policies worked and I’m all in for President Trump,” Johnson continued. “I expect he’ll be our nominee, yeah, and he’s gonna win it and we have to make Biden a one-term president.”
“I’m all in for President Trump and I expect he will be our nominee –we have to make Biden a one-term president.” Says GOP House Speaker @SpeakerJohnson in his first endorsement of Trump as Speaker. “We have to make radical changes; the American people are hurting.”
