Rep. Kevin McCarthy (Republican of California) was elected the 55th Speaker of House of Representatives. He won this position by a narrow margin, after 15 rounds of voting. Former President Donald Trump has also praised McCarthy and other lawmakers.

“Congratulations to Kevin McCarthy and our GREAT Republican Party,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social. “The ‘Speaker’ selection process, as crazy as it may seem, has made it all much bigger and more important than if done the more conventional way.”

Despite some opposition from the party, the former president had supported McCarthy’s nomination for House speaker. Trump had called upon House Republicans before the vote to unite behind McCarthy.

“Kevin McCarthy will do a good job, and maybe even a GREAT JOB—JUST WATCH!” Trump said in a Truth Social post before the vote.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell extended his well wishes: “Congratulations to Speaker McCarthy and the Republican House majority. Senate Republicans look forward to working together to check and balance Washington Democrats, bring oversight to this reckless Administration, fight the far left’s radical policies, and defend America.”
