Yesterday, Congressman Jim Jordan revealed his intention to run for the recently vacated position of Speaker of the House, and President Donald Trump has now endorsed Jordan for the position. Trump made his endorsement on Truth Social, writing:
Congressman Jim Jordan has been a STAR long before making his very successful journey to Washington, D.C., representing Ohio’s 4th Congressional District. Respected by all, he is now Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. As President, I had the honor of presenting Jim with our Country’s highest civilian award, The Presidential Medal of Freedom. So much is learned from sports, and Jim was a master! While attending Graham High School, he won State Championships all four years, a rarity, and compiled an amazing 156-1 record. At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Jim became a two-time NCAA Division l Wrestling Champion. He won his 1985-86 NCAA Championship Matches in his weight class. Jim has a masters degree in Education from Ohio State University & a Law Degree from Capital University. He is STRONG on Crime, Borders, our Military/Vets, & 2nd Amendment. Jim, his wife, Polly, & family are outstanding – He will be a GREAT Speaker of the House, & has my Complete & Total Endorsement!
Of all the possibilities mentioned so far, Jim Jordan is the best of the bunch for patriotic Americans.
Despite Jordan’s reputation as a fighter, Americans shouldn’t expect a riot on the House floor. The Speakership will temper Jordan’s fire as it does all those who sit in the position. The Speaker has to become a pragmatist. They have to work in the world of what can be done, not what they would do. The Democrats still control the Senate. There is only so much the GOP can accomplish in the House until 2024.
