Former President Donald Trump has officially announced his third White House bid —the Don delivered the news to a crowd of supporters at Mar-a-Lago on Tuesday night. Trump stressed “America’s comeback starts right now,” and also took a shot at soon-to-be-gone House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
“Because of all of our great congressmen and congresswomen, we have taken over Congress. Nancy Pelosi has been fired, isn’t that nice?” Trump said to applause.

While she may no longer hold the gavel, President Joe Biden is encouraging Pelosi, 82, to stay on in a leadership role. A spox for Pelosi says she has not made her decision yet.
“The Speaker has not made a decision about her future. As the Speaker just stated yesterday on national TV, she will make a decision once all the votes have been counted,” said Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill. “She’s not even thinking about her future at this moment.”
“The speaker will make an announcement when she makes an announcement,” Hammill told Fox News Digital. “Until then, let’s all enjoy watching Kevin McCarthy lose a speakership his party hasn’t even won in the first place.”
