Former President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he does not have any desire to take House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) place as the leader of the chamber should Republicans retake the House following the 2022 elections.

During an interview with Just the News’ John Solomon and Amanda Head, Trump said he is uninterested in taking over as House speaker despite some of his allies pushing the idea.

“I think that it’s not something I wanted,” he said. “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.”

This comes after some Republicans have floated the idea of Trump becoming the next speaker of the House in the event that the GOP wins back the chamber in November.
