House Majority Leader Steve Scalise has publicly endorsed former President Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential race.
In a recent social media post, Scalise expressed his support, 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.”
Scalise added, “The economy was strong and interest rates were low — grocery costs were affordable, and families could afford to buy a house and provide for their children. The border was secure and crime was down. America had secure energy policies, keeping gas and utility prices low.”
Scalise also criticized President Biden’s current policies, especially regarding border control. Scalise said, “Fiscal Year 2023 surpassed Fiscal Year 2022 as the worst year at the border with the most migrant encounters on record, 169 individuals on the terrorist watchlist apprehended attempting to enter illegally, and over 27,000 pounds of fentanyl seized by the CBP. In Joe Biden’s America, our communities aren’t safe.”
The endorsement comes just two weeks ahead of the Iowa Republican Caucuses, adding additional momentum to Trump’s campaign as he leads in the GOP primary race. It also aligns Scalise with other influential House Republicans like Speaker Mike Johnson and House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, who have already thrown their support behind the former president.
