GOP Reps Nominate Trump for Congressional Gold Medal to Recognize ‘Exceptional Leadership’


“President Trump’s fearless leadership reestablished America as a respected and admired global power,” says Rep. Paulina Luna (R-Fla.).

House Republicans have nominated ex-President Donald Trump to receive a congressional medal.

Under a proposal led by Rep. Paulina Luna (R-Fla.), the former president would be formally recognized for “exceptional leadership” with a Congressional Gold Medal, one of the highest civilian honors.

I just introduced a bill to give President Trump a Congressional Gold Medal. Under his leadership, America was re-established as a respected global power, and the world was safer. It’s time we give him recognition for it. https://t.co/dozHQx3yg6

The medal would be bestowed to the former president “in recognition of his exceptional leadership and dedication to strengthening America’s diplomatic relations during his presidency,” according to text from Luna’s House Resolution 8386, obtained by Fox News.

Speaking to Fox News, Luna said it’s time Trump receives credit for leading the country with strength.

“President Trump’s fearless leadership reestablished America as a respected and admired global power,” Luna told Fox.

“It is time we recognize a president who put our country first and secured global peace through bold diplomacy. Despite the liberal media’s attempts to spread fear, America and the world were undoubtedly safer under President Donald Trump. One of our duties in Congress is to honor those who have contributed significantly to our nation, and that’s why I’m introducing this legislation.”

Co-sponsors of the bill include Rep. Andrew Ogles (R-Tenn.), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) and Rep. Randy Weber (R-Texas).

Interestingly, Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.) is also a co-sponsor of the bill, despite previously backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for president.

“President Trump did more in four years on behalf of the American people than any president in my lifetime. He secured our border, achieved historic peace in the Middle East, and implemented policies that helped our economy prosper,” Rep. Good told Fox. “The last three years of a failed Biden administration have only served as a stark contrast to President Trump’s record.”

We’ll update this article when President Trump responds to Rep. Luna’s proposal.
