House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has acquired a critical defender.

Speaking in a radio interview on Monday, former President Donald Trump sought to take the heat off of the embattled speaker, who remains on the receiving end of a tireless campaign to evict him from his job by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

“Well, look, we have a majority of one, OK?” Trump said. “It’s not like he can go and do whatever he wants to do. I think he’s a very good person. You know, he stood very strongly with me on NATO when I said NATO has to pay up. … I think he’s trying very hard.”

The former president also praised Johnson for the arbitration regarding Ukraine aid that will feature $9 billion in the form of forgivable loans. That matches a usual Trump sentiment in which he has hesitated to give foreign countries money that likely will not be repaid.
