Trump should become House Speaker and impeach Joe Biden, QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene says

QANON rep Marjorie Taylor Greene is leading calls for Donald Trump to become Speaker of the House and impeach Joe Biden.

The Georgia congresswoman on Tuesday lent her support to the former president after he said he would be "interested" in the role currently held by Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

Speaking during an interview with The Water Cooler, Taylor Greene said: "It's no secret that I am one of the biggest supporters of President Trump and I proudly say it all the time.

"I would love to see him, whether it is Speaker of the House or running for congress or Republican majority in 2022, electing him Speaker of the House.

"I am all happy for that because I would love to see him bring my articles of impeachment on Joe Biden to the floor.

"Let's get the job done and impeach Joe Biden. And we can follow up with Kamala Harris next."

Taylor Greene added: "And then we can move Donald J Trump right back in the White House where I believe he belongs. And then of course I am all for him running for president again in 2024.

"I think he has been the best president of my lifetime."

Ahead of a comeback speech in North Carolina on Friday night, Trump branded the idea of him running as early as 2022 "interesting."

The former president was speaking with far-right radio host Wayne Allyn Root who suggested that Trump could flip to house back to the Republican party if he ran in the midterms.

"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?" Root said.

"A House seat in Florida. Win big. Lead us to a dramatic landslide victory. Take the House by 50 seats.

"Then you become the Speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden," the radio host continued.

"You'll wipe him out for this last two years."

Trump did not rule out the suggestion of replacing current speaker Nancy Pelosi.

"That's so interesting," he answered. "You know, it's very interesting."

Trump added that Root's idea "might be better" than the Senate proposal.

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon has also previously floated the House Speaker plan.

"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," he told a group of Republicans earlier this year, according to the Boston Herald.

In an interview Monday GOP favorite Trump called a run for congress in 2022 "highly unlikely".

But he would not need to become an elected member of Congress to become House Speaker.

It is not required by the constitution that the speaker is in the House of Representatives but every person to take on the role so far has been.

However, Republicans would have to flip the House in 2022 in order to appoint the speaker.

Trump would also need all Republican support in order to be chosen.

He told Fox Business on Monday that he would consider Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as his running mate in 2024 in a public snub to former Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump has not yet ruled out a running for reelection for office in 2024.
