Elise Stefanik endorses Trump ahead of his anticipated run for president


House Republican Conference Speaker Elise Stefanik (R-NY) endorsed former President Donald Trump’s long-awaited bid to run for president in 2024, saying “it’s very clear” that Trump is the leader of the GOP.

Stefanik released a statement as Trump said last week that he would announce his 2024 run for president very soon. New York Times initially broke Stefanik’s endorsement for Trump. Stefanik explained his reasoning in a statement to Breitbart News.

“Republican voters determine who is the leader of the Republican Party and it is very clear that President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party. What the media fails to report is that we just won the midterm elections and flipped the House,” Stefanik said in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News.

Stefanik is the first member of the House or Senate leadership to endorse Trump’s candidacy for president.

The Associated Press (AP) has not officially declared that the Republicans have won a majority in the House.

She went on to say that Trump would easily defeat any major potential Republican challengers and that under Trump America was much safer, more secure and more prosperous.

“I’m proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for president in 2024. I fully support him running for president again. Under his presidency, America was strong at home and abroad, our economy was burning, our border was secure, our neighborhoods were safe, our law enforcement was respected, and our enemies feared us,” Stefanik said. “We can’t afford another four years of Joe Biden’s failed policies that led to the crisis. inflation, the border crisis and the crime crisis. It’s time for Republicans to unite around America’s most popular Republican with a proven track record of conservative governance. poll shows President Trump would beat any Republican challenger by massive margins and beat Joe Biden if the election were held today President Trump has always put America first, and I can’t wait to back him up nir so we can save America.

Trump teased his potential Republican presidential announcement at a rally in Sioux City, Iowa on Nov. 4.

“And now, in order to make our country prosperous, safe and glorious, I will very very very likely do it again. OK? Very very very likely. Very very very likely.

Stefanik said House Republicans would repeal 87,000 IRS officers hired under President Joe Biden on the first day Republicans take over the House.
