Two Ohio lawmakers are reportedly seeking support from their fellow legislators to mark former President Donald Trump’s birthday in that state as “President Donald J. Trump Day.”
State Reps. Reggie Stoltzfus and Jon Cross reached out to lawmakers in the Ohio House on Friday, asking them to “recognize the accomplishments of [Trump’s] administration, and [show] that the Ohio House believes it is imperative we set aside a day to celebrate one of the greatest presidents in American history,” Just The News reported.
June 14th is former President Donald John Trump’s birthday. The date is also observed as Flag Day.
“Former President Donald J. Trump was our 45th President of the United States and against great odds, accomplished many things that have led our nation to unparalleled prosperity,” the two wrote to fellow lawmakers in a co-sponsor request that was sent Friday and obtained by the Ohio Capital Journal.
“(Trump) personified the emotions of millions of Ohioans who for too long have felt marginalized by our government and the American political system,” the request concludes. “While the media tarnishes his achievements and his legacy, the legislation will help ensure that for one day each year the voices of millions of people from all corners of our state will be commemorated.”
Stoltzfus and Cross say they are taking co-sponsor requests until next Friday. Continued Below
