Donald Trump Picks Up Congressional Endorsement Ahead of Announcement

After a somewhat disappointing midterm showing for the Republican Party, there are some within the GOP who appear hellbent on laying blame at the feet of former President Donald Trump, as though they’ve been looking for an excuse to return to the status quo.

This could get extremely tricky in the coming days, of course, as it is widely believed that Trump will announce his 2024 candidacy within the week, forcing the rest of the Republican Party to tell us which side of his line in the sand that they’ll stand on.

Ahead of this announcement, at least one member of Congress is already staking her place in The Don’s corner.

House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) endorsed former President Donald Trump’s expected bid to run for president in 2024, saying “it’s very clear” Trump is the leader of the GOP.

Stefanik released a statement as Trump said last week that he would very soon announce his candidacy for president in 2024. The New York Times initially broke Stefanik’s endorsement for Trump. Stefanik explained her reasoning in a statement to Breitbart News.

There was no mistaking the intent of her statement.

“Republican voters determine who is the leader of the Republican Party and it’s very clear President Trump is the leader of the Republican party. What the media fails to report is that we just won the midterms and flipped the House,” Stefanik in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News.

And that wasn’t all:

“I am proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President in 2024. I fully support him running again. Under his presidency, America was strong at home and abroad, our economy was red hot, our border was secure, our neighborhoods were safe, our law enforcement was respected, and our enemies feared us,” Stefanik said. “We cannot afford another four years of Joe Biden’s failed policies that have led to the inflation crisis, border crisis, and crime crisis. It is time for Republicans to unite around the most popular Republican in America, who has a proven track record of conservative governance. Poll after poll shows that President Trump would defeat any Republican challenger by massive margins, and would beat Joe Biden if the election were held today. President Trump has always put America First, and I look forward to supporting him so we can save America.”

Some within the Republican Party are said to be attempting to persuade Trump to reschedule his potential announcement until after the December 6th runoff election in Georgia, but there is no indication at this time that they are having any success.
