COLUMBUS, Ohio (KDKA) – Two Ohio lawmakers plan to create a day to honor former President Donald Trump in the state.
Republican Representatives Jon Cross and Reggie Stoltzfus asked their colleagues at the State House to consider joint sponsorship of a bill to “celebrate one of the greatest presidents in American history,” according to The Columbus Dispatch. Legislators want June 14 to be President Donald J. Trump Day, reports The Columbus Dispatch.
June 14th is Trump’s birthday.
“Let’s show the 3,154,834 Ohio voters who voted to re-elect Donald J. Trump that we as lawmakers recognize the achievements of his administration,” said the two lawmakers in an email on Friday their colleagues, according to the newspaper.
Ohio and 39 other states recognize Ronald Reagan Day on February 6th. Therefore, it is not uncommon for states to honor past presidents on their birthdays.
Ohio’s 18 electoral votes went to Trump, who beat Democratic President-elect Joe Biden in the state by 8.03 percentage points.
