Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) went on Fox News on Monday to fully endorse former President Donald Trump, should he decide to run again in 2024.
“[H]e’s the leader of the conservative movement,” Jordan said of Trump. “He’s the leader of the America first movement, and he is the leader of the Republican Party. And I hope, and you know, I hope — like I said yesterday, I hope on January 20, 2025 he’s, once again, will be the leader of our country. I hope he runs, but he’s definitely the leader of our party. We need to stay together, and the vast, vast, vast majority of our party supports President Trump as our leader.”
Jordan went on to say that he believes Trump would have won re-election, had things been done as they normally are.
“I mean, look, the left knew that under existing rules, they couldn’t beat President Trump,” he explained. “So in the run-up to the election, they had to change the law but they couldn’t because they — and they couldn’t do it in a constitutional fashion because in the key swing states, they didn’t control the legislature. So they had to go around it with Democrat partisan secretary of states, with local Democrat partisan judges.”
“In some cases, you had the partisan supreme — state supreme courts in these states just change the law, go around the state legislature unconstitutionally, and that was the point we made when we objected on January 6,” Jordan added. “That’s the point the president was making yesterday. These state legislatures are going to have to get control of their election law and put in place the changes that President Trump talked about in his speech yesterday.”
This comes a month after Jordan ripped Democrats for their second impeachment effort, saying that they are “scared” of Trump.
“Democrats are going to these lengths because they are obsessed with canceling President Trump,” Jordan continued. “They’re scared of him. They know he works [for] the American people, and not the Washington Swamp. Unlike most politicians, President Trump did what he said he’d do. Hopefully, one day, he’ll get to do it again.”
