Pelosi has long indicated her interest in the job and has argued that she has enough support within her own caucus to secure the job.
“I can get Nancy Pelosi as many votes as she wants in order for her to be Speaker of the House,” he tweeted recently.
In a follow-up, Trump tweeted that Pelosi “deserves this victory, she has earned it — but there are those in her party who are trying to take it away.”
He also predicted that Pelosi “will win!”
In the meantime, Pelosi has argued that she is positioned to win the speakership with Democratic votes and has no need for Republicans’ help.
“Oh please, no,” she said. “Never. Never. Never,” she uttered.
