The political gambit has been proposed over the past year as a means by which Trump could lead an impeachment effort against President Joe Biden, most recently by Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz at Trump’s rally in Georgia over the weekend, but when pressed on it in a new interview, Trump said he’s got other plans in mind.

“No, I think it’s not something I want to do. A lot of people bring it up. It’s brought up all the time. No, it’s not something I want to do. I want to look at what’s happening, and then we’re going to be doing something else. No, it’s not something I would be interested in,” he told Just the News founder John Solomon and Real America’s Voice correspondent Amanda Head at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Every speaker thus far has been an elected House member, though they are not required to be.

Gaetz proposed at the rally that Trump take the job. “Give us the ability to fire Nancy Pelosi, take back the majority, impeach Joe Biden, and I’m going to nominate Donald J. Trump for speaker of the United States House of Representatives!” Gaetz said.

Trump shook Gaetz’s hand before thanking him and saying, “Well, that was interesting.”

Also encouraging Trump to become speaker, before making an even bigger move, was Steve Bannon. The former White House chief strategist discussed the unprecedented scenario during an episode of his War Room podcast in August while criticizing Biden’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal.

“Donald Trump should be elected the speaker of the House after [Republicans] have the sweeping victory in November ’22, at least for 100 days. Take the gavel from [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi, gavel him in, start the impeachment process. In 100 days, punch out, and go run for president of the United States in 2024,” he said.

Trump has been open about his plans for 2024. A new poll shows he has support that surpasses that of Biden as well as Vice President Kamala Harris if they were to face off in a matchup today.
