Two Ohio representatives are looking to declare June 14 as “President Donald J. Trump Day.” On Friday, Republican Reps. Jon Cross and Reggie Stoltzfus emailed their House colleagues asking for co-sponsors for their upcoming bill “to celebrate one of the greatest presidents in American history.” Democrats vow to stop them, of course.
Ohio Republicans push to honor Trump with his own holiday
“Let’s show the 3,154,834 Ohio voters who cast their ballot to re-elect Donald J. Trump that we as a legislature recognize the accomplishments of his administration,” the request said.
They selected June 14 as it is Trump’s birthday. It is also Flag Day, which commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States of America on June 14, 1777.
“I don’t like the idea of changing an existing federal holiday that honors the flag,” Democrat Rep. Jeff Crossman told the paper. “I think it’s disrespectful.”
While it’s not unheard of to create a holiday for a former president’s birthday – Ronald Reagan Day is celebrated in some form in 40 states on Feb. 6 – it’s not common for living presidents. Only Barack Obama, for whom the Illinois legislature approved an unofficial holiday on Aug. 4, has received anything similar.
Democrats oppose the idea, of course
The second impeachment of Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, occurred on January 13, 2021, one week before his term was due to expire. The House of Representatives of the 117th U.S. Congress adopted one article of impeachment against Trump of “incitement of insurrection”, alleging that Trump incited the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
Now the Senate will meet for a partisan show trial which will be largely symbolic, since both parties know the Democrats wont have the votes to impeach. Washington swamp creatures just keep wasting more of our time and money while further dividing the nation.
