New House GOP Resolution Seeks Congressional Gold Medal for Trump Due to ‘Exceptional Leadership’ – EVOL

A group of House Republicans is moving to award President Donald Trump the Congressional Gold Medal.

Republican Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) is leading a Congressional resolution to bestow the honor on Trump.

According to the legislative text, the award will honor Trump “in recognition of his exceptional leadership and dedication to strengthening America’s diplomatic relations during his presidency.”

The move is backed by six fellow House Republicans.

Supporters include House GOP Deputy Whip Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), and Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Andy Ogles (R-TN), Randy Weber (R-TX) and Mike Waltz (R-FL).

“President Trump’s fearless leadership reestablished America as a respected and admired global power,” Luna said in a statement.

“It is time we recognize a president who put our country first and secured global peace through bold diplomacy.

“Despite the liberal media’s attempts to spread fear, America and the world were undoubtedly safer under President Donald Trump.

“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.”

Notably, it is also co-sponsored by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Bob Good (R-VA).

Rep. Good had a rocky relationship with some members of Trump’s orbit earlier this year.
