Donald Trump said he would begrudgingly accept the role of House speaker for a “short period of time” if necessary, days after Rep. Kevin McCarthy was ousted from the position.

The former president told Fox News that several unnamed GOP lawmakers have approached him about the role.

“They have asked me if I would take it for a short period of time for the party, until they come to a conclusion — I’m not doing it because I want to — I will do it if necessary, should they not be able to make their decision,” Trump told the outlet.

There are no rules that dictate the Speaker must be a member of the House, but so far the position has always been filled in by a Congress member.
