Republicans are asking to vote to remove their president

After months of conflict, last week, members of the US House of Representatives were finally able to agree on a new multi-billion-dollar package for Ukraine. This came after Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson presented a proposal that divided support for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

On the outer edge of the Republican Party, discontent was running high. Many called on the party, which has a slim majority in the House of Representatives, to link aid packages to additional funds to monitor the country's border with Mexico.

Marjorie Taylor Greene The Georgia Republican immediately announced that she would vote against the proposal, claiming that Johnson had “clearly broken his promise” when the aid package was passed.

It has since launched a campaign to remove Johnson as speaker, but has so far only received open support from Thomas Massie, a congressman from Massachusetts.

At a press conference on Wednesday, Taylor Greene announced that next week she will introduce a motion in the House of Representatives for a vote on the future of House Speaker Mike Johnson. It also calls on the Speaker of the House of Representatives to resign on his own initiative.
