GOP House Leadership Officially Endorses Donald Trump For President

House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) united with their fellow Republican colleagues in leadership to endorse former President Donald Trump for president in 2024.

The endorsement adds further momentum to the former president’s seemingly certain victory in the GOP primary, and comes this week just before the consequential Iowa caucus that begins the 2024 election season.

Emmer called upon the Republican party to stand behind former President Donald Trump to prevent President Biden from gaining another term.

“Democrats have made clear they will use every tool in their arsenal to try and keep Joe Biden and his failed policies in power. We cannot let them, so it’s time for Republicans to unite behind our clear frontrunner, which is why I am proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President,” he added.

Making her decision in November 2022, House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) came out as the first Republican leader to endorse the former president. Around the same time, National Republican Congressional Committee Chair Richard Hudson (R-NC) also announced his endorsement.

With the latest endorsement of the former president, House Republicans continue to display their unity around Trump and his domination over the GOP. The former president has continuously dominated every major poll in 2024 and has even procured control over President Biden in many surveys concerning the upcoming presidential election.

According to the Daily Mail, the endorsement came after Donald Trump hindered Emmer’s effort to become House Speaker following the departure of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). In a claim made by Trump on Truth Social, the former president called Emmer an anti-Trump RINO who never respected his endorsements.

The recent House GOP endorsements came just after a New Year’s Day newly published poll that showed Donald Trump taking the lead over President Joe Biden among young and Hispanic voters. Trump’s majority Hispanic vote stands at 39%, while President Biden gathers 34% support.

Additionally, the former president has taken over the lead with young voters at 37%, compared to the 33% who support President Biden. One thing is for sure: the 2024 election is bound to be a wild ride!
