Floor Leader Emmer declared his support for former President Trump in a statement on the 3rd (local time), saying,
Now is the time for Republicans to unite around the party’s clear frontrunner.
Democrats have made it clear that they will use every tool in their arsenal to maintain Biden and his failed policies.
We cannot leave this alone,” he said.
With floor leader Emmer’s announcement that day, all five House Republican leaders joined the ranks of Trump supporters.
Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, House Republican Caucus Chairman Ellis Stefanik
and National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman Richard Hudson already declared their support for former President Trump in November of last year.
House Minority Leader Steve Scalise, who was the second-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives and lost the race for Speaker of the House
announced his support for Trump the day before.
In particular, in the case of floor leader Emmer, Fox News reported that the declaration of support was significant in that
unlike other leadership members, she had an ‘unstable relationship’ with former President Trump.
Former President Trump’s ‘sabotage’ was responsible for the resignation of floor leader Emmer
who was a candidate for the new Speaker after the dismissal of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in October last year, within a few hours.
At the time, former President Trump sniped at floor leader Emmer, calling him a “Republican in name only” (RINO), and floor leader Emmer eventually voluntarily withdrew from his candidacy for chairman.
Floor Leader Emmer also voted in favor of the certification process for the results of the 2020 presidential election, which President Joe Biden won on January 6, 2021.
As Trump’s dominance becomes clear in the Republican primary, the number of senators and representatives joining in support of Trump is increasing.
Politico, a political media outlet, reported that 18 of the 49 Republican lawmakers in the U.S. Senate, or about 37%, expressed support for former President Trump.
