House Speaker Mike Johnson has publicly endorsed former President Donald Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, aligning himself with Trump’s controversial stance on the 2020 election results. This endorsement, which marks a significant political move within the Republican Party, was announced during Johnson’s appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana and a known ally of Trump, expressed his unwavering support for the former president. “I’m all in for President Trump,” Johnson stated, emphasizing his commitment to seeing President Joe Biden limited to a single term in office. This endorsement is seen as a strategic move, signaling a strengthening alliance between Johnson and Trump, and potentially influencing the Republican landscape as the 2024 election approaches.
The endorsement also included Johnson’s backing of Trump’s unfounded claims that the 2020 election was stolen.
