“President Trump has my full endorsement and my support as our Republican nominee in 2024,” the firebrand conservative told reporters, according to a clip posted to social media on Tuesday.
Trump is expected to announce a 2024 campaign at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida this evening, and Greene said he energizes the base and increases voter turnout while talking about the upcoming Senate runoff in Georgia. Greene is reportedly under consideration to be Trump’s running mate.
One person who could challenge Trump for the GOP nomination is Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who on Tuesday punched back at the former president saying he won more votes in the 2020 election than DeSantis received this time. “I would just tell people to go check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night,” DeSantis said.
Asked to comment on people lining up behind DeSantis, or anyone else, Greene said Trump “remains the leader of the Republican Party.”
The congresswoman also praised DeSantis as an “incredible” governor and said she hopes DeSantis will consider staying there.
