In a shocking revelation, ex-President Donald Trump has been accused of threatening House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to secure an endorsement for the 2024 election. ( 📄 Trump Officials Have Phones Seized By Jack Smith ) (radaronline.com) (radaronline.com) (politico.com) Instead of offering his endorsement, McCarthy reportedly promised to expunge the former president’s two impeachments, leading to further tension and division within the GOP. The high-stakes political maneuvering has put the party’s unity at risk and added to the mounting legal troubles Trump faces, with the specter of a potential third criminal indictment looming.
As Trump vies for endorsements ahead of the 2024 election, sources have revealed that he is “furious” at McCarthy for not backing him. The House Speaker’s recent suggestion on national television that Trump might not be the best candidate for the GOP nomination only fueled the fire, prompting the former president to demand an endorsement. Trump reportedly raged, “He needs to endorse me – today!”
Instead of an immediate endorsement, McCarthy offered to hold a House vote to expunge the two impeachments against Trump. However, the timeline for this vote has been pushed back, leading to growing impatience from Trump and his team. The delay has raised doubts among senior Republicans, who fear that a failed vote could worsen divisions within the party and embarrass Trump further. While some believe McCarthy’s promise was a reflexive move to protect his own interests, others see it as a strategic messaging tactic to appease Trump.
McCarthy’s refusal to endorse Trump’s 2024 bid is reportedly tied to the need to maintain a sense of neutrality while pursuing the expungement of the two impeachments. However, Trump and his team are becoming increasingly frustrated with the delay and have allegedly warned McCarthy of potential consequences if the vote is not held soon.
