Trump Endorses Jim Jordan to be Next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

Overnight, former President Donald Trump endorsed House Judiciary Committee Chair and House Freedom Caucus founder Jim Jordan (R-OH) in the race for Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives triggered by the Tuesday vote to remove Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as Speaker of the House. Tuesday’s vote marked the first time in U.S. history that a sitting House Speaker was removed. Jordan is currently running in a two-way race for Speaker against House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA). Trump’s endorsement comes ahead of next Tuesday’s “Speaker Candidate Forum,” where Jordan and Scalise will debate their visions for leading the House Republican Caucus ahead of a tentative Wednesday caucus vote to elect the next Speaker of the House.
