In a statement released on Truth Social, Trump praised Jordan, stating, “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.”

Trump went on to highlight Jordan’s impressive athletic background, noting his achievements in wrestling both in high school and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “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 I Wrestling Champion. He won his 1985-86 NCAA Championship Matches in his weight class.”

In addition to his athletic prowess, Trump emphasized Jordan’s academic achievements, pointing out that “Jim has a master’s degree in Education from Ohio State University & a Law Degree from Capital University.”

The former President also underscored Jordan’s political stances, stating that he is “STRONG on Crime, Borders, our Military/Vets, & 2nd Amendment.” He concluded his endorsement by praising Jordan’s family, saying, “Jim, his wife, Polly, & family are outstanding – He will be a GREAT Speaker of the House, & has my Complete & Total Endorsement!”

According to a recent article from The New York Times, this endorsement has sent ripples through the political landscape. With Trump’s significant influence within the Republican Party, his backing of Jordan could potentially sway many GOP members in the House to support Jordan’s bid for the Speaker position. The article also points out that Jordan’s rise has been meteoric, with his staunch defense of Trump during his impeachment trials earning him significant political capital.

However, the endorsement also comes with its challenges. As the Times article notes, Jordan’s aggressive style and unwavering loyalty to Trump have made him a polarizing figure, both within and outside the Republican Party. While his supporters laud him for his tenacity and commitment to conservative values, his detractors criticize him for his confrontational approach.

Trump’s endorsement of Jim Jordan is a testament to the Congressman’s growing influence within the GOP. Whether this endorsement will pave the way for Jordan to clinch the Speaker’s gavel remains to be seen, but it undoubtedly adds another layer of intrigue to the ongoing political drama in Washington, D.C.
