House Republican introduces resolution to award Trump Congressional Gold Medal

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL), backed by a group of House Republicans, has introduced a bill calling for Congress to award former President Donald Trump the Congressional Gold Medal.

The bill text says the medal would be “in recognition of his exceptional leadership and dedication to strengthening America’s diplomatic relations during his presidency.”


“President Trump’s fearless leadership reestablished America as a respected and admired global power,” Luna told Fox News Digital. “It is time we recognize a president who put our country first and secured global peace through bold diplomacy. Despite the liberal media’s attempts to spread fear, America and the world were undoubtedly safer under President Donald Trump. One of our duties in Congress is to honor those who have contributed significantly to our nation, and that’s why I’m introducing this legislation.”

The bill also justifies why Trump should receive the gold medal by citing his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, helping to establish the Abraham Accords, and other foreign policy achievements.

“Donald J. Trump’s statesmanship and excellent presidential leadership has inspired fervency and love of country in millions of Americans,” Rep. Andy Ogles (R-TN), who backed the legislation, told the Washington Examiner. 


“Congress would be remiss not to recognize him,” he said. “The Trump presidency ushered in peace worldwide as he prioritized peace through strength rather than endless foreign wars. Trump’s contributions to the American heritage and stalwart defense of the American way of life cannot be understated. I am proud to join my colleagues in honoring President Donald J. Trump’s incredible leadership and dedication to America.”
