Could it be true?
Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin recently sat down with CBS to talk about a number of things related to the midterm elections.
As of right now there is a slim chance that Republicans could take a House away from Democrats even though they have lost the Senate.
During his speech Raskin expressed serious concerns about former President Donald Trump becoming the next Speaker of the House instead of Republican Kevin McCarthy.
According to The Hill, Raskin explained, “One potential candidate who’s name has been floated is Donald Trump himself because the Speaker of the House does not have to be a member of the House.”
Raskin said, “It’s a real problem for Kevin McCarthy now, because there are certain pro-Trumpists within his House caucus who refuse to accept that he’s really with Trump and they want to get rid of McCarthy. They might just vote for Trump.”
Raskin pointed out that the Speaker of the House doesn’t actually have to be a member of Congress so Trump really could be the next Speaker.
Rep. Raskin is concerned Trump could become Speaker of the House.
