Trump Lands New Endorsement
On Monday, Senator Marsha Blackburn, a Republican from Tennessee, announced her support for Donald Trump in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.
According to Newsmax, Blackburn released a statement on both Trump’s official campaign website, Make America Great Again, and on Twitter, praising his leadership during his previous term as President.
The Tennessee Republicans wrote, “Under President Trump, our economy was booming, gas prices were low, and inflation was under control. Our border was secure, our adversaries feared us, & our military was strong. … I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for President and can’t wait until he’s back in the White House.”
Senator Bill Hagerty, another Republican from Tennessee, also expressed his endorsement of Trump in a Twitter post on Sunday.
“It is my honor to give my whole-hearted endorsement to Donald J. Trump to be the next President of the United States. I was honored to previously serve in his Administration,” Hagerty explained.
Similar to Blackburn’s endorsement, Hagerty also referenced Trump’s prior tenure as President as a key factor in his decision to support his potential reelection.
“Under President Trump, our border was secure, our nation was energy independent, & we witnessed a Blue-Collar Boom that lifted up American workers of all backgrounds. Under President Trump’s leadership, we engaged with strength, & we encouraged our allies to stand strong with us,” Hagerty explained.
Hagerty also mentioned that Trump demonstrated strong leadership by standing up against Communist China, abandoning Obama’s ‘leading from behind’ strategy, and revitalizing the military and law enforcement. According to Hagerty, these groups were motivated by the support of their Commander-in-Chief, which was lacking before Trump’s presidency, and is now absent again under the Biden administration.
According to Ballotpedia, in April, Donald Trump received endorsements from Senators Ted Budd of North Carolina and Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, as well as Representatives Cory Mills and Byron Donalds of Florida. Additionally, in March, eight Republican House members from Texas also expressed their endorsement of Trump.
As per the latest available information, Donald Trump has gained 55 noteworthy endorsements from various political figures.
