Trump disapproves of Greene’s Speaker ousting attempt, saying it’s not the right time

By Majesty 4 Min Read

“This is not the time” to remove House Speaker Mike Johnson, according to former president Donald Trump, who urged House Republicans not to support Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.

An attempt to vote on removing the chair by Greene and Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Kentucky, was defeated by the House of Representatives on Wednesday.

When Green sought to compel a vote on her motion to vacate the chair, which should have allowed for the vote, she seemed to take most Congressional observers by surprise.

Despite her prior appearances endorsing Trump with a MAGA hat, the former president urged Republicans to delay her motion.

“I absolutely love Marjorie Taylor Greene. She’s got Spirit, she’s got Fight, and I believe she’ll be around, and on our side, for a long time to come,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “However, right now, Republicans have to be fighting the Radical Left Democrats, and all the Damage they have done to our Country. With a Majority of One, shortly growing to three or four, we’re not in a position of voting on a Motion to Vacate. At some point, we may very well be, but this is not the time.”

He went on to declare that he is ahead in swing states as well as national presidential polls.

Republicans are performing well in the Senate, according to Trump, and he thought the party would perform well in the House.

Then he issued a warning about sending the wrong impression that Republicans were divided.

However, everything will suffer if we exhibit DISUNITY, which will be represented as CHAOS,” the author wrote. “Mike Johnson is a good man making a lot of effort. Although I also wish that some tasks had been completed during the previous two months, we will work together to complete them.

“I ask Republicans to support ‘THE MOTION TO TABLE,'” Trump continued. “We WILL WIN BIG – AND IT WILL BE SOON!”

The table vote, which Johnson secured strong support for from both Democrats and Republicans, passed 359 to 43, preventing a vote on her proposal. Along with 32 Democrats, just 11 Republicans voted against the measure’s tabulation.

Johnson received the backing of 196 Republicans and 163 Democrats in the Republican caucus.

Her move was thwarted, and the House GOP side of the chamber cheered.

Since late March, Greene has been protesting Johnson’s handling of government financing and foreign aid by threatening to call for a vote on taking up Johnson’s gavel.

After Greene designated her resolution as “privileged” on Wednesday night, it will now need to be voted on or tabled. This gives House leaders two legislative days to consider it. Her resolution is known as a move to vacate the chair.
