In a surprising move, former Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has endorsed former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential race, noting that he believes Trump will be the Republican nominee.

McCarthy recently announced his decision to retire at the end of 2023 after being ousted from the speakership in a historical move over his failure to keep his promises to his conservative colleagues. Just before that announcement, the RINO congressman was heard openly attacking the GOP and praising Democrats — which is why many are so surprised about his endorsement of Trump.

“I look over at the Democrats… they look like America. We look like the most restrictive country club in America,” he said during a recent appearance at a New York Times DealBook summit.


Now, McCarthy is endorsing Trump — the very person who has been blamed for the changes to the Republican Party that have led to criticism from people like McCarthy.

“I will support the president. I will support President Trump,” McCarthy said during a CBS Sunday Morning interview, according to a preview of the interview released on Friday.

The former House Speaker also predicted that, if the 2024 presidential election ends up being a rematch of 2020 between President Joe Biden and Trump, the former president will emerge victorious. He also argued that alongside Trump’s victory would be a red wave, with Republicans picking up more seats in the House and flipping the Senate.

McCarthy then offered to accept a Cabinet position in the Trump administration, if he were offered one.


“In the right position. Look, if I’m the best person for the job, yes,” he said. “I worked with President Trump on a lot of policies. We worked together to win the majority, but we also have a relationship where we’re very honest with one another.”

McCarthy has also recently offered advice for Trump’s vice-presidential pick, arguing that former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) was his choice. He claimed that the establishment, pro-war candidate was gaining popularity in the primary, despite widespread animosity toward Haley among Trump’s conservative base.

“If I was picking for purely political decisions, what it looks like today is the anti-Trump vote is going to Nikki Haley,” McCarthy said during his appearance at the DealBook Summit on Wednesday. “But the question is: Who you select, will they serve? So that’s another question you have to have. And it’s about addition.”
