Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio officially endorsed President Donald Trump’s 2024 White House bid, removing any room for doubt about where he stands.
“I am 100% for President Trump,” Jordan said.
🚨 POLL: Will you vote for Trump?
YES 👍 or NO 👎
Rep. Jordan argues that Trump is the only president to do what he said he was going to do despite strong opposition from an entire political establishment.
“No one has demonstrated that they will do what they said and get things done like he did, and he did it with everyone in that town against him,” Jordan said.
“And that’s what I still respect about President Trump, and I’m for him all the way,” he added.
Jordan also mentioned that he “liked” all of the current and potential candidates and is “friends” with them.
“I just talked to Vice President Pence. Great guy,” Jordan explained. “Governor DeSantis, a great guy.”
“When we formed the Freedom Caucus, there were nine of us. He was one of the nine. But I am 100% for President Trump,” he said.

Jordan has been one of Trump’s staunchest defenders against the felony falsification of business records charges brought against him by New York district attorney Alvin Bragg last week, and has launched an inquiry into the latter over his efforts targeting the former president, which includes subpoenas to provide documents pertaining to the investigation to the House Judiciary Committee later this month.
Bragg, in turn, sued Jordan over the subpoenas alleging he is trying to wage a campaign of intimidation over his prosecution of Trump.

In addition to expressing his support for Trump, Jordan told Fox that Republicans needed to win elections to prevent Democrats from eroding Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
“I always tell folks the Second Amendment is right next to the first for a reason. It’s darn important, and we need to understand that and not let the left continue to chip away because ultimately they want to get rid of it,” he said.
“But whether it’s the crazy red flag laws, whether it’s what the ATF is doing with the pistol brace rule, on and on it goes. They keep chipping away, but their end goal is to get rid of it, and we got to stop it,” he added.
