House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is treading cautiously when it comes to expressing his support for former President Donald Trump in the upcoming GOP primaries. This approach reflects his need to balance personal ambitions with the undeniable influence that Trump still holds within the Republican Party.

In a recent interview with CNBC, McCarthy was asked about Trump’s chances of winning the general election and whether it would be beneficial for the Republican Party if he became the nominee. McCarthy responded by acknowledging that Trump could indeed win the election but expressed uncertainty about whether he was the strongest candidate. He also pointed out that anyone has the potential to defeat President Biden and that Biden himself can defeat other contenders, saying:

“Can he [Trump] win that election? Yeah he can … the question is, is he the strongest to win the election, I don’t know that answer.”

McCarthy would go on to add:

“Can anybody beat Biden? Yeah, anybody can beat Biden. Can beat Biden other people? Yes, Biden can beat ’em.”


McCarthy, who commands a substantial following within the House GOP caucus, has consistently showcased his loyalty to Trump. He skillfully navigates the line between acknowledging Trump’s significant political sway while asserting his own independent leadership. The predicament he confronts is whether to yield to Trump’s persistent demand for unwavering loyalty or chart a course for the House that may not perfectly align with Trump’s objectives.

Despite McCarthy’s occasional criticism of Trump’s involvement in the January 6 incidents, he swiftly sought forgiveness and has consistently praised Trump. He even went as far as endorsing the distribution of the unedited January 6th tapes to various media figures, including Tucker Carlson of Fox News and John Soloman of Just The News. However, McCarthy has refrained from offering a formal endorsement to Trump, even as Trump’s team diligently seeks approximately 60 endorsements from House Republicans.

Should McCarthy openly endorse Trump, Democrats in swing districts may exploit this opportunity by labeling McCarthy as a “MAGA Republican.” They would attempt to portray the typically moderate Republican McCarthy as an extremist or radical, potentially alienating members of the caucus who support alternative candidates. Furthermore, conservatives are concerned that endorsing Trump could jeopardize the GOP’s chances of retaining control of the House, a scenario that could pose a threat to McCarthy’s position as minority leader.
