Donald Trump said he 'stands' with Mike Johnson and he's done a 'very good job' as the pair appeared at a joint news conference amid threats of another motion to oust the speaker.

'He's doing really good job under tough circumstances,' the former president said at Mar-a-Lago. 

Johnson's future is in a precarious position after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a staunch Trump ally, launched a motion to vacate him last month.
