The idea came from Steve Bannon a former Trump advisor, who told a group of Boston Republicans in February that Trump should run for Congress in 2022, the Boston Herald reported.
“We totally get rid of Nancy Pelosi, and the first act of President Trump as Speaker will be to impeach Joe Biden for his illegitimate activities of stealing the presidency,” Bannon said.
Radio host Wayne Allyn Root asked former President Trump on Friday about that proposal and he said it was “interesting.”
“That’s so interesting,” Trump said. “Yeah, you know it’s very interesting. But you know what, your idea might be better. It’s very interesting.”
