The US House of Representatives did not elect a new president of the body in the fourth round of elections that was chosen this Wednesday. Kevin McCarthy could not obtain the necessary votes to lead the lower house of the US Congress, since several members of the Republican Party support Byron Donalds.

Referring to Byron Donalds and Hakeem Jeffries, Republican Chip Roy excluded that it is the first time in history when two black people are candidates for the presidency of the body at the same time.
