... Johnson traveled to Florida and promised to introduce legislation touching on two of Trump's favored political issues: border security and election integrity. Trump looked on as Johnson spoke, before taking questions from reporters at his Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago resort on Friday.

"I stand with the speaker. We've had a very good relationship," Trump said during the joint press conference.

The backing from Trump, the party's dominant figure, could be vital to strengthening Johnson's hold on power. Some Republicans are eager to avoid public fights that make the GOP-led House seem ungovernable months before the November election against President Joe Biden.

Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a close Trump ally, though, has warned that she could force a vote in the coming days on ousting Johnson. The Georgia congresswoman said that how Johnson handles Ukraine aid -- which she opposes -- will be a factor in whether she triggers the vote.

"He's doing a really good job under very tough circumstances," Trump said Friday of Johnson. "I'm sure that Marjorie understands that. She's a very good friend of mine. And I know she has a lot of respect for the speaker." ...

And, I'll ask once again...

What did Spkr Johnson give to fmr Pres Trump in order to get this apparent level of support from fmr Pres Trump?

Fmr Pres trump is a transactional person, not one who seems to be concerned about long term ramifications.

But transactional, i.e., what does this deal get me now?

@#3 ... Putin's bitch is glitching again. ....

Yeah, I have typos when I type here (so many typos).

But, on the other hand, I am not someone who wants to be President of the United States.

And, I might add, my typos are not as bad as those you cite.

And, for fmr Pres Trump, it does not just seem to be the typed comments. I mean, have you ever listened to one of his rally speeches from start to finish?

The garbled speech is painful.

When he was President, did he talk like that when he was face-to-face with leaders of other countries?
