Trump Runs Away When Asked If He Still Supports Mike Johnson

Politics

Maybe he was still groggy from napping all day, but Donald Trump walked away when asked if he still supports Mike Johnson.

If I am Mike Johnson, I am feeling pretty nervous after watching that video clip. Trump may have appeared with Johnson a week ago and said that he was doing a good job, but the one thing that the former president did not do was pick up the phone and tell Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to drop her planned motion to vacate against Johnson.

Given that Trump is weak minded and changes his tune based on the last person that he talked to, Speaker Johnson should not be feeling comfortable at this moment.

The Ukraine aid bill that Trump opposes will pass the House sometime on Saturday and then the drama and conversation will begin about Mike Johnson’s future. Democrats are willing to chip in enough votes to save Johnson from the motion to vacate the chair, but the cost to Johnson will likely be that he becomes a lame duck speaker. Donald Trump could have saved Johnson today with a strong endorsement, but he chose not to, and by saying nothing, Trump have sealed Johnson’s fate.
