Several Republicans are suggesting former President Donald Trump could become the next Speaker of the House after GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy was ousted.
On Tuesday, McCarthy became the first Speaker of the House to be ousted in the history of the United States Congress. In a 216-210 vote, McCarthy was voted out thanks to an effort led by Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz and supported by several other Republicans and Democrats.
Soon after, McCarthy announced that he would not run again for the speakership. That led to Texas GOP Rep. Troy Nehls taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, to nominate Trump as Speaker of the House.
