Kevin McCarthy fails to win the presidency of the US House of Representatives despite Donald Trump’s support

The U.S. House of Representatives failed to elect a new president despite holding three new rounds of polling due to continuing disagreements between Republicans.

20 Republican lawmakers insist on not supporting Kevin McCarthy, ignoring former US President Donald Trump’s call for Republicans to endorse him.

Republican leader McCarthy was unsuccessful in mobilizing the support needed to win office in six rounds of voting over two days.

US President Joe Biden said Congress’s failure to carry out its duties was shameful for the country.

On Wednesday, Trump wrote a letter of support to McCarthy urging lawmakers to endorse him in his bid to succeed Democrat Nancy Pelosi as president of the House.
