With the 2024 Presidential elections less than one year away and the Iowa Caucuses just around the corner, candidates are bustling to win over voters.
However, the Republican field continues to shrink more by the day, making a Trump vs. Biden rematch very likely.
And Donald Trump is grinning from ear to ear after securing this ground-breaking endorsement.
The Trump campaign just got some new energy after securing this major endorsement
Every single Republican nomination poll so far released has former President Donald Trump leading by a significant margin.
With that in mind, Trump’s competitors are doing everything they can to secure key endorsements with the goal of gaining momentum before the Primary season.
On Tuesday, House Speaker Mike Johnson gave former President Donald Trump his unwavering endorsement.
During an interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box, Speaker Johnson said that “I have endorsed [Donald Trump] wholeheartedly,” before adding that “I was one of the closest allies President Trump had in Congress. He had a phenomenal first term.”
He went on to say that “those first two years, as you all know, we brought about the greatest economic numbers in the world, and not just the country, because his policies worked, and I am all-in for Trump.”
Speaker Johnson then predicted that Trump would easily win the Primary and the General Election.
“I expect he will be our nominee, and he will win it, and we have to make Biden a one-term President,” he said. “We have to do that.”
From the beginning of the Trump Presidency, the two have stood together on most issues.
It should come as no surprise that during last month’s scramble to find a new House speaker, Donald Trump came out solidly in favor of Mike Johnson.
On Truth social last month, former President Donald Trump posted that “I am not going to make an Endorsement in this race, because I COULD NEVER GO AGAINST ANY OF THESE FINE AND VERY TALENTED MEN, all of whom have supported me, in both mind and spirit, from the very beginning of our GREAT 2016 Victory.”
He added that “my strong SUGGESTION is to go with the leading candidate, Mike Johnson.”
What Johnson’s endorsement of Donald Trump means for Republicans moving into 2024
Speaker Mike Johnson’s unwavering support for Donald Trump shows that he believes unity is a winning strategy for Republicans in 2024.
Both the 2022 and 2023 elections were disappointing for Republican candidates, causing many to rethink the GOP’s strategy.
In other hotly contested Primary battles, prominent figures such as Speaker of the House have given more measured and delayed endorsements, which is not the case with Johnson.
Speaker Johnson is all in on former President Donald Trump, and his speedy endorsement shows that he hopes other Republicans will follow in his footsteps.
