House GOP Seeks Congressional Gold Medal for Trump: Unwavering Support amidst Political Turmoil

Share on social

In a bold and unexpected move, a group of House Republicans are rallying together in an attempt to award former President Donald Trump with a Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian award the Legislative Branch can bestow. Fox News has recently obtained a draft of a resolution that seeks to recognize Trump for “his exceptional leadership and dedication to strengthening America’s diplomatic relations during his presidency.” This surprising effort is spearheaded by Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-LA) and has garnered the support of at least six other Republicans, including House GOP Chief Deputy Whip Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA).

“Despite the liberal media’s attempts to spread fear, America and the world were undoubtedly safer under President Donald Trump,” Luna informed the news outlet. “One of our duties in Congress is to honor those who have contributed significantly to our nation, and that’s why I’m introducing this legislation,” she added. Trump would join the ranks of former presidents who have received gold medals from Congress, such as George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan.

However, it is important to note that, given the current political climate, with Republicans narrowly controlling the House and Democrats leading the Senate, Trump is unlikely to receive the award in the near future. Despite this obstacle, Trump’s GOP supporters in Congress continue to introduce various measures aimed at honoring the former president.

Last month, Reschenthaler led a House Republican effort to rename Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia as the Donald J. Trump International Airport. In the meantime, Trump is fighting off criminal cases on both federal and state levels, claiming that prosecutors are engaged in a politically motivated “witch hunt” against him. Throughout the ongoing hush-money trial in New York City, a number of congressional Republicans and other supporters have stood by Trump’s side, reinforcing their allegiance to the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) appeared at the Manhattan courthouse on Tuesday, where he expressed his belief that it is “painfully obvious” that Trump is being unfairly targeted by Democrats. In the midst of these political maneuvers, President Joe Biden is also campaigning for a second term, setting the stage for a potential 2020 rematch between him and Trump. However, this time around, new factors emerge, such as independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. entering the race.

In conclusion, even though the likelihood of Trump receiving a Congressional Gold Medal remains slim, the unwavering support from his GOP allies in Congress showcases their dedication to preserving his legacy. Whether or not their efforts will have a significant impact on the upcoming presidential race remains to be seen. As the political landscape in America continues to evolve and shift, one can only wonder what surprises lay in store for us on the road to the 2020 election.
