In an interview with Donald Trump on his show, Wayne Allen Root raised the idea of President Trump running for the House and personally leading the Republicans to retake the majority and firing Nancy Pelosi from the Speakership. Chris Pandolfo reports for The Blaze:
Donald Trump for Congress?
It sounds like a far-fetched idea, but the former president appeared to express interest in starting his political comeback in the U.S. House during an interview with radio host Wayne Allyn Root on Friday afternoon. Root pitched Trump on the idea of running for a U.S. House seat from Florida next year and then seeking to become House Speaker should Republicans win the majority in the 2022 midterm elections.
From that position, Root said, Trump could “wipe” Biden out as the Republican leader and then run for president again in 2024.
“Why not, instead of waiting for 2024, and I’m hoping you’ll run in 2024, but why not run in 2022 for the United States Congress? A House seat in Florida. Win big. Lead us to a dramatic landslide victory. Take the House by 50 seats,” he told Trump.
“Then you become the Speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden. You’ll wipe him out for this last two years,” continued the radio host.
Trump appeared to like what he was hearing.
“That’s so interesting,” the former president said. “You know, It’s very interesting.”
He added that other people have suggest he run for Senate, “but you know what, your idea might be better.”
Root isn’t the first person to float the idea of Trump running for Congress. Back in February, 2016 Trump campaign strategist Steve Bannon told a group of Republicans in Boston that Trump should unseat Speaker Pelosi and launch an impeachment investigation against Biden.
“We totally get rid of Nancy Pelosi, and the first act of President Trump as Speaker [of the House] will be to impeach Joe Biden for his illegitimate activities of stealing the presidency,” Bannon said.
