These Ohio Republicans Seek To Declare 'President Donald J.Trump Day' Officially

However, now's probably not the best time to float the idea of Donald J. Trump Day after the January 6 riot at the Capitol and with a post-presidency impeachment trial on the horizon.

Statehouse News Bureau's Karen Kasler shared a memo from two Ohio House Republicans, Jon Cross and Reggie Stolzfus, in which they seek co-sponsors to support legislation that would celebrate Trump as "one of the greatest presidents in American history", and proclaiming that he accomplished unspecified "many things that have led our nation to unparalleled prosperity".

The release included a picture of McCarthy standing next to Trump inside the resort.

In his piece, Kennicott said, "Trump must never have an official presidential library, and Congress should move quickly to make sure he never will".

But on Thursday McCarthy appeared back in Trump's graces, as the men grinned broadly in a handout photograph taken in an ornate room reminiscent of a European palace.

However, one Democrat said he felt the date would be "disrespectful", according to the Columbus Dispatch.

She tried to say no to wearing a terrifically large hat to Aretha Franklin's 2018 funeral, only to be overruled by her designer. Further in her career she also received three Emmy Awards, a SAG award, a Tony Award and an honorary Oscar.

House Democrat Katherine Clark expressed shock that McCarthy was re-aligning with Trump after the "seditious" Capitol assault.

"A united conservative movement will strengthen the bonds of our citizens and uphold the freedoms our country was founded on", he said.

But fine-print disclosures explained that the money raised would be divvied up between the Trump campaign, his newly formed Save America political action committee, and the Republican National Committee.

They are a large enough contingent to influence the Republican primaries.
