WATCH: Trump Calls the Idea of Running For Congress in 2022, Becoming Speaker “Very Interesting”

Donald Trump is very bored sitting down in Mar-a-Lago. And with serious legal problems looming, the former president is itching to get back in power. Unfortunately for him, though, the next race for president won’t occur for another 3 1/2 years.

But if he wanted to run for a lesser seat, Trump wouldn’t have to wait that long. During an interview on Friday, Conservative host Wayne Allen Root pitched Trump on the idea of running for congress in 2022. The former president seemed intrigued by the idea, calling it, “very interesting.”

The host asked, “Why not, instead of waiting for 2024, and I’m hoping you’ll run in 2024, but why not run in 2022 for the United States Congress? A House seat in Florida. Win big. Lead us to a dramatic landslide victory. Take the House by 50 seats.”

Root continued, “Then you become the Speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden. You’ll wipe him out for this last two years.” Trump responded, That’s so interesting. You know, it’s very interesting.”

This idea had originally come from former Trump adviser Steve Bannon. Bannon said in February, “We totally get rid of Nancy Pelosi, and the first act of President Trump as Speaker will be to impeach Joe Biden for his illegitimate activities of stealing the presidency.”
