Trump Releases Late Night Update on Speaker’s Race Negotiations

After another day of Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy failing to get the 218 votes he needs to become Speaker of the House, President Donald Trump issued a late night update on negotiations.

“Very good things are happening behind the scenes for the Republican Party. Intense but Smart negotiations between GREAT and PATRIOTIC people are ongoing. They all love our Country, and want something to go forward, ASAP. This “event” will end up making the Republican Party STRONGER and more UNITED than ever before. OUR NATION IS AT STAKE. Stay tuned and, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump said on Truth Social.

On Wednesday morning, Trump urged 20 Republicans voting against McCarthy to get onboard, which didn’t sit well with opposing members.

In addition to Trump’s new update, the Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) announced new concessions on primary campaign funding, a major sticking point for those currently opposed to McCarthy’s candidacy and The Club For Growth. CLF is a McCarthy endorsed, independent Super PAC that has been meddling in Republican primaries.

“Kevin McCarthy has effectively led House Republicans from the Minority to the Majority and we want to see him continue to lead the party so we can pick up seats for the third cycle in a row. CLF will not spend in any open-seat primaries in safe Republican districts and CLF will not grant resources to other super PAC’s to do so. CLF has never spent a dollar against a Republican incumbent before and obviously will continue that policy in the future,” CLF President Dan Conston released in a statement Wednesday night. “CLF will continue to support incumbents in primaries as well as challengers in districts that affect the Majority, which proved to be critical to winning the Majority in 2022.”

“This agreement on super PAC’s fulfills a major concern we have pressed for. We understand that Leader McCarthy and Members are working on a rules agreement that will meet the principles we have set out previously. Assuming these principles are met, Club for Growth will support Kevin McCarthy for Speaker,” Club For Growth President David McIntosh added.

The House will reconvene Thursday at 12 p.m. et and resume votes for Speaker.

    SOMEBODY NEEDS TO PUT THEIR FOOT ON THE NECKS, OF THESE 20 GOP “MORONS”, WHO ARE PLAYING GAMES, TO KEEP KEVIN MCCARTHY, FROM GETTING THE SPEAKERSHIP. OBVIOUSLY THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WITHIN WHO HAVE A, “PERSONAL VENDETTA, AGAINST KEVIN, THIS IS NOT WHERE TO TAKE IT, WE’RE TAKING BACK AMERICA HERE, NOT SOME “YOKELS” FEELINGS THAT GOT HURT, SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE, THE TWO BIGGEST BUFFOONS ARE, LARUEN BOEBERT, AND MATT GAETZ. THE GOP , OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE “PARTY OF DO NOTHINGS”, WILL NEVER LEARN TO SHOW ANY “UNITY”, ITS NO WONDER THE DEMS BEAT THEM AT EVERY TURN. THEY STICK TOGTHER, AND HAVE NO RINOS TO CONTEND WITH.

      Your not informed in the right areas. Removal of garbage is a necessity. If you don’t’ It piles up and rots. Then someone has to clean the garbage up and let it drain thru and out of the swamp. I’m speaking of the Chinese and American Communist Party.

    It’s just WEIRD to give the Credit for the Growth in the Republican Party to McCarthy!!! He didn’t do anything but raise $$$ for HIS candidates of choice – all RINOs and Never-Trumpers! If there is ANY ONE PERSON who deserves ‘Credit’ for the Republican Party coming back into Power, you need look no further than at the 83 Million Voters who came out for Trump in 2020, a RECORD NUMBER, even beating Obama’s turnouts!!! And if NOT for all the absurd (and uninvestigated, ignored) FRAUD across the Nation in 2020, he would NOT have been beat by a no-show, no-interviews, noncoherent, octogenarian who doesn’t know where he is half the time! among his many other flaws like Lying, Corruption, etc. and all his many failures after Trump’s many successes!!! Trump did it!!! We all OWE President Trump who rejuvenated the GOP into a Political Movement to be reckoned with! Trump did it!!! All McCarthy did was ‘profit’ from it while he lambasted Trump from behind the scenes. What we have been SEEING since 2016 in the GOP is a RESULT of Trump’s INFLUENCE on the Party to WAKE UP, and realize WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, and we can REPLACE these fogie RINOs who aren’t even Real Republicans anymore! if they ever were (most of whom are just Dems in disguise, like the Romney twins.)

    Kevin McCarthy is supported by Trump yeh? Most probably he will be elected as the Speaker of the House today……. On the 6th of January and on the 12th round. Never forget that in 1856 the Speaker of the House was chosen at the 133rd round.
    The House will reconvene Friday at 12 p.m. et and resume votes for Kevin McCarthy…… Go McCarthy go………..Trump is behind you. You will make a very good looking and a successful Speaker of the World.

    Trump for Speaker!

  • 1LTLos says:

    Trump is wrong on this blind and ridiculous support of Kevin McCarthy. Policy of CLF is meaningless! The Democrats have their sick policies too! The CONSTITUTION ARE THE RULES – Not crappy rules made up by McCarthy. If he was such a great leader he would get the votes! But obviously he sucks and bought is paid for like every other Californian and Romney in history!!!
