Schumer Dismisses Idea of Trump as House Speaker

To any observer of domestic American political affairs, it should come as no surprise when it is stated that the conditions of politics, the economy, and culture in the United States are unstable. Indeed, since the 46th President Joe Biden entered the oval office in January of 2021, it appears that crises after crises has engulfed the nation. At the southern border, millions of illegals are estimated to have entered the country illegally under Bidens watch, and the head of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas (along with the president) have been candidly derelict in their duty to defend the United States and ensure national security by failing to address the major problem. Inflation brought about at least in part by reckless government spending has crippled the already declining American middle class. 60% of individuals are living paycheck to paycheck, and wages remain relatively stagnant, unable to keep up with the soaring cost of living. Things are undeniably bad in America.

While Biden and the Democrats have undoubtedly governed irresponsibly and downright poorly, Republicans continue to show that they are unable to govern at all even if they wield even a sliver of power. After narrowly taking back the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterms, Republicans in the lower house of congress have bickered incessantly over the speakership. While Kevin McCarthy was elected speaker, he became the first in U.S. history to be removed from that position after a small group of rogue Republicans supported by Democrats ousted him from power.

Allegedly, some crazed individuals have called for Donald Trump to become speaker of the House. Trump allegedly toyed with the idea, and one of his most loyal supports in congress, Marjorie Greene from Georgia openly applauded the idea on X. The Democrat Majority leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer responded to Greene’s post shortly after, alleging that the nation had already “seen a Trump rally at the Capitol” (January 6th).
