Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has shared a photo of what she described as a “perfect” phone call with former President Donald Trump during Friday night’s efforts to elect the new speaker of the House of Representatives.

Greene shared the image to Twitter early on Saturday amid reports that the former president had spoken to Republican holdouts who were opposed to newly elected Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

“It was the perfect phone call,” Greene tweeted along with a photo from Bloomberg News that pictured her holding up a cellphone showing a call from a contact named “DT” – Donald Trump.

“In the minutes following the vote, conservative insiders took to Twitter to reveal that President Trump played a key role in finalizing this deal,” Trump said, quoting tweets from Jack Posobiec and Charlie Kirk.
