Trump Celebrates New House Speaker Mike Johnson

October 26, 2023

It was a celebratory phone call that former President Donald Trump was all too happy to make.

Trump's handpicked man, Mike Johnson of Louisiana, had just become speaker of the House of Representatives.

"Congratulations to Rep. Mike Johnson," Trump posted on Truth Social. "He will be a GREAT ‘SPEAKER.’ MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

Trump also congratulated a few other Republicans in a big message online:

Congratulations to Congressional Republicans! Yesterday was a big and very important day. It gave us a quick and easy way forward with 5 candidates who are beyond reproach, and represent the absolute best there is in the Republican Party. Even the Fake News Media is impressed with what took place yesterday and, more importantly, with the Candidates themselves. Congratulations to Reps. Byron Donalds (Florida), Charles J. “Chuck” Fleischmann (Tennessee), Mark Green (Tennessee), & Roger Williams (Texas), & the ultimate winner of yesterday’s vote, by a significant margin, Mike Johnson (Louisiana). I am not going to make an Endorsement in this race, because I COULD NEVER GO AGAINST ANY OF THESE FINE AND VERY TALENTED MEN, all of whom have supported me, in both mind and spirit, from the very beginning of our GREAT 2016 Victory. In 2024, we will have an even bigger, & more important, WIN! My strong SUGGESTION is to go with the leading candidate, Mike Johnson, & GET IT DONE, FAST! LOVE, DJT

Do you think Trump's endorsement is the reason Johnson took the gavel?
