Congresswoman Proposes Trump Be Given a Congressional Award

It’s become apparent in recent years that Donald Trump’s presidency was pretty much the stuff of legends, particularly in comparison to the president we have now. And that’s precisely why at least one congresswoman is proposing that Trump be rewarded for his historic and great achievements.

As Fox News reported, Florida congresswoman and GOP member Anna Paulina Luna has proposed that Trump be given one of the highest congressional honors in existence, the Congressional Gold Medal. Per the outlet, the award would be “in recognition of his exceptional leadership and dedication to strengthening America’s diplomatic relations during his presidency.”

If you remember correctly, thanks to a series of poorly made executive decisions made by Democratic presidents such as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, America was falling as a world power. Not only were our military branches floundering, but national aspects such as foreign trade and international relationships began to suffer.

But then Trump came to the White House, and suddenly, our allies were emboldened, our enemies became weaker, America’s economy thrived, and peace was achieved. In fact, Trump achieved what no one else in history has been able to: a peace treaty in the Middle East.

Of course, the liberal left still called him a threat to democracy and the world.

However, in the years since Biden has taken over, it’s made more than just a few people notice how truly remarkable the Trump White House years were, hence why an award is now being proposed.

As Luna says, “President Trump’s fearless leadership reestablished America as a respected and admired global power. It is time we recognize a president who put our country first and secured global peace through bold diplomacy.”

The proposal of such an award is being supported by fellow Floridian Mike Waltz, Pennsylvania’s Guy Reschenthaler, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Tennessee’s Andy Ogles, and Randy Weber of Texas.

As the Washington Examiner pointed out, the last president to receive the award was Ronald Reagan in 2000. Other recipients include the Dalai Lama, golfer Jack Nicklaus, and members of the Tuskegee Airmen, as well as former presidents Ford, Grant, Truman, and Washington.
