Trump Endorsed For President By House Republican Leadership

Every Republican leader in the House has formally expressed their support for Donald Trump’s presidential bid in 2024.

This week, House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) endorsed Trump in a statement published on X, formerly Twitter.

In the statement, Emmer called out Biden’s “failed policies” and said that Trump is the “clear frontrunner.”

“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.”

Former President Trump thanked Emmer via a Truth Social post, writing, “THANK YOU TOM, I WILL NEVER LET OUR COUNTRY DOWN!”

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) also published a statement this week on X endorsing Trump.

Similarly, Scalise also called out Biden’s “failed policies” in his statement:

“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.”

These endorsements come after a USA Today/Suffolk University poll published on New Year’s Day showed that Trump is currently leading among both Hispanic and younger voters.

Among American voters overall, Trump leads Biden 39 to 37%, with 17% preferring a third-party option. Additionally, among voters 35 years old or younger, Trump leads Biden 37 to 34%.

With Hispanic voters, Trump leads Biden 39 to 34%. In 2020, Trump received 32% of the Hispanic vote while Biden received 65%.

Trump received 12% of the support of Black voters, the same amount he received during the 2020 election. Biden, however, received 64% of the support of Black voters, down from the 87% he received in the 2020 election.

The poll was conducted by surveying 1,000 U.S. voters and had a 3.1% margin of error.
