“No, I haven’t,” Trump said in correcting Root, who had stated that the former president endorsed McCarthy for speaker.
“No, no, no. I haven’t. No, I endorsed him in his race. But I haven’t endorsed anybody for speaker.”

The host added that Trump would be needed to lead the “indictment … the impeachment” of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
