Rep. Byron Donalds Endorses Trump For President

 April 8, 2023

Representative Byron Donalds of Florida has officially endorsed former President Donald Trump.

The move from Donalds is shocking, as the congressman is friends with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is expected to announce a presidential bid in the coming months.

"There is only one leader at this time in our nation's history who can seize the moment and deliver what we need — to get us back on track, provide strength and resolve, and Make America Great Again. That is why I'm honored to endorse President Donald J. Trump for President in 2024, and I ask my fellow Americans to join me," Donalds said.

"Donalds is one of three congressional representatives from Florida to endorse Trump's 2024 candidacy, along with Reps. Matt Gaetz and Anna Paulina Luna," reports Fox News.

"While he has not made any official announcements, it has been widely rumored that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will also make a run for the 2024 presidency, and is so far Trump's strongest competitor, according to recent polling," reports Fox.

"Trump made gains among almost every key demographic except for White men with a college degree, where DeSantis is up by 12 points," according to Fox News.

Trump primary voters said they would back DeSantis as a second choice, and DeSantis' primary voters would return the favor and go for Trump.
