Trump Endorses Pelosi for Speaker of the House

President Donald Trump endorsed current House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to be the next speaker of the House after Democrats regained control of the lower chamber in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

House Democrats picked up 28 seats in Tuesday’s election, with several races still too close to call. The results were hardly the “blue wave” that some Democrats were projecting going into the night.

House Democrats did enough to ensure that they will regain control of the House, setting up what could be an epic internal battle over who the next leader of the House Democratic caucus will be.

Many Democrats campaigned during the 2018 election cycle on not supporting Pelosi as speaker, calling for new leadership instead. Now those statements will be put to the test.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, a possible 2020 candidate for president, dodged questions about whether he would support Pelosi, calling it an internal matter for House Democrats on Tuesday.

But, Pelosi does have the backing of Trump, who tweeted his support for Pelosi on Wednesday.

“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor,” Trump tweeted.
