Donald Trump as House Speaker in 2022


For the past few months, some analysts have speculated that if Republicans win control of the House in 2022, they could elect former President Donald Trump as House speaker — something that would be perfectly allowed by the Constitution, which doesn’t require the speaker to actually be an elected member of the House of Representatives. This would bring Trump back into political power two years earlier than running for president, as well as put him in the line of presidential succession.
