Democrats Block Greene’s Effort to Oust Speaker Johnson

The House of Representatives voted to table Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) motion to vacate against Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA).

The resolution was tabled in a vote of 359 to 43, with 7 “presents.”

Greene claimed the vote to save Johnson was the “Uniparty in action.”

Donald Trump responded to the matter on Truth Social, writing, “I absolutely love Marjorie Taylor Greene. She’s got Spirit, she’s got Fight, and I believe she’ll be around, and on our side, for a long time to come. However, right now, Republicans have to be fighting the Radical Left Democrats, and all the Damage they have done to our Country. With a Majority of One, shortly growing to three or four, we’re not in a position of voting on a Motion to Vacate. At some point, we may very well be, but this is not the time.”

“We are leading in the Presidential Polls by a lot, both Nationally and in the Swing States. Likewise, we are doing well in the Senate, and I believe will do well in the House,” he continued. “But if we show DISUNITY, which will be portrayed as CHAOS, it will negatively affect everything!”

Trump noted that Speaker Johnson is a “good man who is trying very hard.”

“I also wish certain things were done over the last period of two months, but we will get them done, together. It is my request that Republicans vote for “THE MOTION TO TABLE.” We WILL WIN BIG – AND IT WILL BE SOON!”

House Democrats previously indicated they would be open to aiding Speaker Johnson.

Efforts to oust Speaker Johnson followed the passing of a $1.2 trillion spending bill.

In March, Greene said she filed a Motion to Vacate because the House “needs a Speaker who’s able to win for Republicans and our constituents,” she wrote on X.
