As Donald Trump prepares for his 2024 presidential campaign, he has already gotten endorsements. Former president receives backing from Republican legislators.
On November 15, Trump declared his candidacy for reelection.
“In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” he said at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida estate where he will base his campaign.
“America’s comeback starts right now,” Trump declared, proclaiming, “Your country is being destroyed before your eyes.”
“Under our leadership, we were a great and glorious nation — something you haven’t heard for quite a long period of time,” he added. “Now we are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation. For millions of Americans, the past two years under Joe Biden have been a time of pain, hardship and despair.”
“House GOP Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik has endorsed Trump for president, referring to him as the “leader” of the GOP,” Just the News reported.
Republican Reps. Mary Miller of Illinois, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Troy Nehls of Texas, Ronny Jackson of Texas, Paul Gosar of Arizona, Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Clay Higgins of Louisiana, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller and GOP Rep.-elect Wesley Hunt of Texas have also endorsed Trump.
“Our country is in a rapid decline thanks to Joe Biden and the Democrat Party,” Hunt said on social media.
Ohio’s incoming representative, Max Miller, endorsed Donald Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential candidacy.
“I wouldn’t be here without his support, and President Trump will always have my support,” he declared.
“Eli Crane of Arizona is another incoming freshman member of the House who is supporting Trump for president,” JtN continued.
While U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville of Alabama released a statement in support of Trump’s 2024 run, Texas Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn haven’t publicly endorsed Trump. Cornyn told reporters he will “support the nominee of the Republican Party, but I think there’s likely to be a competitive primary election.”
The former president has some early supporters in Hollywood as well.
Actor Jon Voight, a strong supporter of Trump’s in 2016 and 2020, is supporting his bid for a second term in 2024. Trump awarded Voight the National Medal of Arts at the White House in November 2019.
“Let us pray that the one president who understood truths and had the best interests of the American people, the American dream, President Donald Trump, will return to the presidency,” Voight said in a video. “He and only he can stop this swamp. Allow President Trump to rebuild our soil and our land so we can rise to our glory.”

He communicates plainly to the American people with bold clarity.” CONTINUE READING…
