House GOP Leaders Rally: Steve Scalise Endorses Trump for President

Republican House leaders are rallying behind former President Donald Trump, as House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) stands as the latest individual to formally offer his presidential endorsement.

Scalise said in a statement, first reported by Fox News Digital, that American workers and families were “thriving” when Trump was at the helm.

“The economy was strong and interest rates were low — grocery costs were affordable, and families could afford to buy a house and provide for their children,” Scalise said, also pointing to the security of the border and decreased crime during Trump’s first term.

“America had secure energy policies, keeping gas and utility prices low,” he continued, concluding that the Biden Administration has “has driven our country into chaos with skyrocketing costs, and hardworking taxpayers are the ones paying the price” in more ways than one, he said, pointing to gas prices, housing costs, mortgage rates, and inflation — the latter of which reached “the highest level in 40 years.”

Communities are not safe under Biden, he continued, noting that border encounters in Fiscal Year 2023 was the worst on record, adding that 169 individuals on the terrorist watchlist were apprehended.
