The former U.S. president has a low estimate of the chance to run in the midterm elections in 2022
To lead the lower house of the U.S. parliament, Trump must first win in one of the districts.
Former U.S. President Donald Trump is interested in becoming the speaker of the US House of Representatives вЂ” the lower house of the U.S. Congress. On the eve of such a proposal was made by his former adviser Steve Bannon.
He told The Hill.
вЂњYou know, it's so interesting,вЂќ Trump said.
He noted that some associates suggested that he run for the Senate, but the idea of leading the House of Representatives may look better.
At the same time, the former president rated the chances of him running in the midterm congressional elections as very low. The idea that Trump could become Speaker of the House of Representatives, expressed on the eve of his former adviser Steve Bannon.
To lead the lower house of the U.S. parliament, Trump must first win in one of the districts, and then his candidacy as the speaker must be supported by a majority of congressmen. However, in the US House of Representatives, the majority of seats are held by members of the Democratic Party, so Trump's election as a speaker is unlikely.
