Another US Senator Endorses President Trump

President Donald Trump has received another boost to his 2024 presidential campaign with the endorsement of Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK). He was elected to the Senate in a special election last year with Trump’s endorsement and is the fifth U.S. Senator to endorse the former President’s campaign, joining Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Eric Schmitt (R-MO), Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), and J.D. Vance (R-OH).

Sen. Mullin, who called President Trump “the architect of our American First movement” and “exactly the president we need” in a statement, praised the former President for delivering excellent results to the American people in just four years. He highlighted Trump’s accomplishments, including lowering taxes, securing American energy independence, protecting the Second Amendment, and never backing down from the radical Left.

In addition to the five Senators, 17 members of the House of Representatives and one governor – South Carolina’s Republican Henry McMaster – have endorsed President Trump’s 2024 campaign.

Despite being almost two years away from the 2024 race, talk of which other potential candidates will run for the presidency is already heating up. But, so far, President Trump is the only major candidate who has declared his intentions for 2024.

Vance was elected to the Senate from Ohio last November after President Trump endorsed him in the GOP primary and the general election. In support of his endorsement of Trump, Vance wrote an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal praising Trump for his successful foreign policy during his first term. He cited Trump’s success at “not starting any wars” and bringing “the first real disruption to a failed consensus” that brought on prolonged conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the globe.

Trump’s time in office saw significant foreign policy accomplishments, including peace agreements between Israel and several Arab states in the Middle East and the opening of diplomatic talks with North Korea. He also endured friction with NATO allies over his demands that they spend more on their own defense and ordered multiple airstrikes in Syria along with the assassination of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.

Despite some criticism of President Trump’s foreign policy decisions, Vance put most of the blame on his predecessors, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, and sought to counter those saying President Trump lacks the “statesmanship” for the job.

Vance, who served as a U.S. Marine and is a bestselling author, supports President Trump’s 2024 campaign because he said he is “the only person certain to do” what needs to be done.
