Luna leads House GOP push to award Trump the Congressional Gold Medal

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna is leading a handful of GOP colleagues in a push to award a Congressional Gold Medal to former President Donald Trump.

Luna (R-Fla.), joined by seven other Republicans — GOP Deputy Whip Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.), and Reps. Lauren Boebert (Colo.), Andy Ogles (Tenn.), Randy Weber (Texas), Bob Good (Va.), Mary Miller (Ill.) and Mike Waltz (Fla.) — offered the resolution Tuesday. It comes as Trump sits in New York amid an ongoing criminal case concerning hush money payments to former adult actress Stormy Daniels.

Neither the offices of Speaker Mike Johnson nor Majority Leader Steve Scalise were immediately available for comment.

Among the clauses in the resolution are “the greatest of President Trump’s foreign policy achievements was that no wars were started while he was in office.”

Recent recipients of the award have ranged from the Dalai Lama to the Tuskegee Airmen and golfer Jack Nicklaus, among others.
