Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said on CBS's “Sunday Morning” this week that he is open to supporting former President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election and serving in the White House cabinet.
A partial transcription follows:
Costa: Will Donald Trump be the candidate?
McCarthy: Yes. What about the Republican Party? yes. And if Biden remains the Democratic nominee, I believe Donald Trump will win. I believe that Republicans will gain seats in the House of Representatives and that they will win the Senate.
Costa: Can he count on your support?
Costa: Is that an endorsement?
McCarthy: I support the president. I support President Trump.
Costa: Would you be interested in serving in Trump's cabinet?
McCarthy: You're in the right place. You know, whether I'm the best person for the job or not. yes. I worked with President Trump on many policies. We worked together to get a majority. But we also have a very honest relationship with each other.
