RNC 2020: U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan touts President Trump as ‘pro-America candidate’

Congressman Jim Jordan, from Ohio’s 4th Congressional District, touted President Trump as the “pro-America candidate” and lambasted Democrats for what’s happening in some U.S. cities.

“The Republican party is the pro-America party. President Trump is the pro-America candidate,” said Jordan, who represents Ohio’s 4th Congressional District, which includes Auglaize, Champaign, Logan, Shelby counties.

“This election is about who can preserve the values, principles, and institutions that Make America Great,” the 56-year-old Congressman from Troy said Monday night. The party planned a mix of virtual and in-person events in North Carolina and Washington, D.C.

“Don’t believe me? Look at what’s happening in America’s cities – all run by Democrats. Crime, violence, mob rule. Democrats refuse to denounce the mob.

“And their response to the chaos? Defund the police, defund border patrol, defund the military. And while they’re doing all of this, they’re also trying to take away your guns.”

The ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee and member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform listed several decisions made by Democrats that have harmed the nation.

“Democrats won’t let you go to church, but they’ll let you protest,” he said. “Democrats won’t let you go to work, but they’ll let you riot. Democrats won’t let you go to school, but they’ll let you loot.”

The co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus said Trump has fought against what the congressman called the Democrat’s “crazy ideas.”

The president has taken on the swamp, the Democrats, the press, and the Never Trumpers, Jordan said.

“And when you take on the swamp, the swamp fights back. They tried the Russia hoax, the Mueller investigation, and the fake impeachment. But despite this unbelievable opposition, look what this President has accomplished.”

Jordan then listed accomplishments Trump has achieved.

“Taxes cut, regulations reduced, economy growing, lowest unemployment in 50 years, out of the Iran deal, embassy in Jerusalem, hostages home from North Korea, new USMCA agreement, and he’s building the wall, and rebuilding the economy,” Jordan said.

“I love the president’s intensity and his willingness to fight. But what I also appreciate is something most Americans never see – how much he truly cares about people,” Jordan said, recalling when his nephew, Eli, was killed in a car accident two years.

Jordan said Trump called him a few days later and asked how the family was doing.

Trump said, “Yea. Losing a loved one’s always difficult, and it’s really tough when they’re so young.”

I then said “Mr. President, I’m actually walking into their house right now. Obviously, they don’t know I’m talking to you. But if you’d be willing to say hello to Eli’s dad, you’d make a terrible day a little less terrible.”

“What’s his name?” Jordan said the president asked. I walked through the door, and said “Todd, the president wants to talk to you.”

Jordan said family and friends sat in silence as the president took time to talk to a dad who was hurting.

“That’s the president I know. That’s the individual who’s Made America Great Again and who knows America’s best days are in front of us,” Jordan said. “And that’s why I’m busting my tail to help him get re-elected.”
