"President Trump on Wednesday weighed in on the contest for the next House speaker, saying House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) deserves the post.

'In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats,' Trump said on Twitter. 'If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!'

Pelosi, who has been the top Democrat in the House for 16 years, is widely considered the front-runner to retake the speaker’s gavel after eight years of Republican control.

But during the campaign, dozens of Democrats called for new leadership, only some of whom prevailed Tuesday night.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times last month, Pelosi hinted that if she became speaker, her tenure might not be long, although she stopped short of providing a time limit. 'I see myself as a transitional figure,' she said."
