there is no Bluetooth built into the TV you can use a Bluetooth transmitter from the RCA outputs

My TV only has the RCA A/V red/white outputs (2 ports). Any adapters you recommend to convert the red/white 2 ports to one so I can connect the bluetooth transmitter you are recommending?

OR

Would this USB to stereo output jack (since I already have one of these) work with the bluetooth transmitter you recommend?

Your speaker has a 3.5mm audio jack, as Komodor suggested you could use this, although it won't be wireless anymore.

Correct, my speaker does have a 3.5mm audio jack, but I am trying to use the speaker wirelessly.

My RCA audio outputs on my TV consist of one red and one white port (2 ports total).

The bluetooth transmitters Komodor is suggesting just have one cable coming from the device itself. But it would seem that I need a bluetooth transmitter that has 2 cables coming from it (or an adapter). I would then plug the 2 cables coming from the bluetooth transmitter to the 2 RCA ports on my TV.

I hope that makes sense.

Ya you would need a transmitter to go from the TV to get the audio wirelessly on the box. Connections and cables just depend on exactly which one you buy. Put links here and we can confirm it will all hook up and hopefully work.

The RCA jacks (red and white) look very similiar to the one I attached. What kind of bluetooth adapter can I get with RCA jacks like these?

Ha, no we know what RCA jacks look like in general. I am talking about links to what your thinking of buying.

BTW on the picture you posted those are RCA in so it will not work to output sound to anything.

My apologies, the picture I posted was from a google search. The RCA on my TV looks the same except my TV's RCA are output.

I do not know of any links to put here. That is why I am in Tech Support, for someone to give me advice or links of an adapter I could use for my particular situation.

Thanks

People gave you a few links above for possibilities. Up to you to probably pick one and then if you wanted a second opinion, my suggestion was to post them here to make sure they will all connect etc. This is an uncommon situation so it's not something a lot of people are likely to have first hand experience with, so your unlikely to get an answer where everyone agrees buy device X and cable Z to do what you want.
