Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) suggested that former President Donald Trump is House Republicans’ true Speaker as he claimed the Republican-led efforts to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was led by Trump.

Arguing that Republicans would not be successful in their bid to impeach the Biden admin official during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” she said, “I don’t know who Mike Johnson is. It’s clear Donald Trump is Speaker of the House.”

Moskowitz further suggested that Trump is behind his Republican colleagues’ opposition to the $95 billion foreign aid package that passed the Senate on Tuesday. According to him, House Republicans opposed the new foreign aid proposal and the border deal that got scrapped in order to limit Biden’s path to victory in the 2024 election.

He then went on to attack Trump for a comment he made last week about NATO, in which he said that he would not protect member nations from Russia’s attack if they do not pay their share of NATO funding.

“[Trump] wants to change how the United States is viewed around the world. I mean, the idea that he wants to get back into office, and he wants to have better relationships with China and Russia, right, who are trying to destabilize the world should send literally shivers down Americans’ spine,” he stated.

“​​You know, he talks about, Joe Biden is going to start World War II — by the way, that happened in the ’40s — but Donald Trump, what he’s talking about dealing with Russia, if Russia would start invading Europe, that would start World War III, by the way. Donald Trump is talking about that and setting the stage,” he added.

During an event in South Carolina, Trump had said, “One of the presidents of a big country stood up and said, ‘Well sir, if we don’t pay and we’re attacked by Russia, will you protect us?’ I said, you didn’t pay? You’re delinquent? He said, ‘Yes, let’s say that happened.’ No, I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. You gotta pay.”

Having faced blowback on the left, he took to Truth Social to clarify what he meant. “When I told the 20 Countries that weren’t paying their fair share that they had to PAY UP, and said without doing that you will not have U.S. Military Protection, the money came rolling in,” he explained.

“After so many years of the United States picking up the tab, it was a beautiful sight to see. But now, without me there to say YOU MUST PAY, they are at it again,” he added. “We are into helping Ukraine for more than 100 Billion Dollars more than NATO. We have nobody that they respect, and they insist on paying far less than we do. Wrong, NATO HAS TO EQUALIZE, AND NOW. THEY WILL DO THAT IF PROPERLY ASKED.”
