Trump Up for 1 Historic Award in D.C. – Republicans Push Hard to Get This Honor Done for Donald

Donald Trump had accomplished plenty of good during his short stint in the White House. He helped broker trade agreements in the Middle East, defying expectations. He kept the world’s enemies under his thumb, including Iran and North Korea.

He even helped make America the world’s leader in exporting energy, something Biden has devastated in just a few years.

Now, a group in Congress is looking to recognize Trump’s achievements. A few Republicans are pushing to give Trump the highest honor the House can give to a civilian.

From Daily Wire:
A group of House Republicans have banded together in trying to get former President Donald Trump a Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian award the Legislative Branch can bestow.

“One of our duties in Congress is to honor those who have contributed significantly to our nation, and that’s why I’m introducing this legislation,” [Rep. Anna Paulina Luna] added…

Former presidents are counted among the recipients of gold medals from Congress, including George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan.

Several House Republicans are looking to give Trump a Congressional Gold Medal. This is the highest award the legislative branch can give a non-soldier. Rep. Anna Paulina Luna cited many of Trump’s accomplishments. She wants to recognize “his exceptional leadership and dedication to strengthening America’s diplomatic relations.”

Other presidents have received this honor, including George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, and Ronald Reagan. It is unclear if Luna and her allies will be able to make this a reality for Donald Trump.

Republicans have a narrow majority in the House. And if a few of them vote against giving Trump this honor, the attempt will fail. Yet, Trump supporters in Congress continue to make moves to honor him this election year.

This move could be about helping to improve the party’s image with voters. While Democrats accuse him of crimes and prosecute him, Republicans seek to honor him with awards. Trump supporters who are skeptical of some GOP lawmakers might warm up to them if they know these lawmakers are honoring the former president.

Key Takeaways:

  • A few House Republicans want to give Trump a Congressional Gold Medal.
  • This is the highest honor Congress can give to a civilian.
  • The Republicans cite Trump’s success in diplomatic relations for the reason.
