Mike Johnson talks about visiting Trump at Mar-a-Lago

Mike Johnson Has A Trump Problem As Ex-President Signals Dumping Him

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s motion to vacate against Speaker Mike Johnson failed, but Trump left the door open to dumping him.

According to Punchbowl News:

Johnson has been hugging former President Donald Trump as closely as possible for the last few months. Johnson held a news conference with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, appeared at the Trump campaign’s donor retreat, devoted the top of his news conference earlier this week to saying the charges against Trump are bogus, and stood with Trump’s allies on the Capitol steps Wednesday to push a bill making something illegal that’s already illegal. All this helped him.

Yet on Wednesday, Trump issued a statement on Truth Social that backed Johnson while still leaving the door open to dumping him, “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.”

Mike Johnson went to Mar-a-Lago and back Trump’s bogus election integrity claims. Johnson humiliated himself by introducing legislation that would ban non-citizens from voting even though it is already illegal for non-citizens to vote, and what is the thanks that he gets from Trump?

The ex-president puts out a statement saying that essentially says that he is fine with House Republicans throwing Johnson overboard, but now isn’t the time. In other words, Trump is as wishy-washy as ever. If more House Republicans decide to kick Johnson to the curb, Trump won’t lift a finger to protect the speaker.

The Republican Party is all about Trump, and no one else.

Mike Johnson has a Trump problem and it is only a matter of time until he suffers the same fate as everyone else that gets too close to Trump.
