House GOP Leadership Unanimously Backs Donald Trump

All House Republicans in leadership roles endorsed Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential race this week. The unanimous support sets the stage for Trump’s potential victory in the GOP primary, making him the official Republican presidential candidate, given his overwhelming lead in the polls.

House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) have officially endorsed Donald Trump for president in 2024.

In a post on X, the platform formally known as Twitter, Emmer directly called on the Republican party to unite behind the “clear frontrunner” to prevent President Biden from securing another term in the White House.

Emmer posted, “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. It’s time for Republicans to unite behind our party’s clear frontrunner, which is why I am proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President.”

This long-awaited endorsement follows Donald Trump’s opposition to Tom Emmer’s bid for the House speakership, which arose after the removal of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), as reported by the Daily Mail. Trump, aiming to block Emmer from assuming the role, labeled him as an anti-Trump RINO (Republican in name only) on Truth Social, asserting that Emmer “never respected the Power of a Trump Endorsement.”

On Tuesday, Rep. Steve Scalise joined in endorsing the former president, stating, “I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for president in 2024, and I look forward to working with President Trump and a Republican House and Senate to fight for those families who are struggling under the weight of Biden’s failed policies.”

In November, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) expressed his endorsement for Trump.

House GOP members’ endorsements align with a New Year’s Day poll, that shows Donald Trump leading among Hispanic and younger voters.

Trump secures the majority of the Hispanic vote, with 39% supporting the former president over Biden who only has 34% support.

Additionally, Trump now takes the lead among voters under the age of 35, with 37% supporting him compared to only 33% supporting Biden.
