Trump said at a Manhattan courthouse, “Lot of people have been calling me about the Speaker. All I can say is we’ll do whatever is best for the country and for the Republican Party. My focus is totally on that. If I can help them during the process, I’ll do it. But we have some great people in the Republican Party that could do a great job as Speaker.”

Additionally, Trump may not be eligible for the Speaker role because he faces many felony charges in multiple cases as per GOP conference rule.

Rule 26 of the House Republican Conference Rules states that “a member of the Republican Leadership shall step aside if indicted for a felony for which a sentence of two or more years imprisonment may be imposed.” However, House Republicans can change the rule by voting.

The U.S. House voted on Tuesday to remove Republican California Representative Kevin McCarthy from his position as House speaker.

Ramaswamy had supported those few Republican conservatives who attempted to remove McCarthy as House speaker. In his video message released after the vote to unseat the Speaker, the Presidential hopeful has suggested chaos is sometimes a good thing.

Ramaswamy had said, “The point of removing the House Speaker was to sow chaos. That’s what the critics of Matt Gaetz and everybody else is saying. And my advice to the people who voted to remove him is to own it.”

He continued, ” Admit it. There was no better plan of action of who’s going to fill that Speaker role. So, was the point to sow chaos? Yes, it was. But the real question to ask, to get to the bottom of it, is whether chaos is really such a bad thing?”

Ramaswamy polls third behind Florida governor Ron DeSantis and Trump in most polling, while in some, the emerging politician is also seen ranking second behind the former President for the GOP 2024 nomination.
