Sen. Mike Lee becomes 21st senator to endorse Trump: ‘America first over America last’


As the Iowa Republican Caucus is right around the corner, Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee on Friday endorsed former President Donald Trump for president, bringing to 21 out of the 49 Republicans in the U.S. Senate who endorse Trump.

“Look, whether you like Donald Trump or not, whether you agree with everything he says or not, he is our one opportunity to choose order over chaos and putting America first over America last,” Lee told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Friday.

Lee said that voters have the choice between “order” over “chaos” and that it is time to get behind Trump.

“Look, whether you like Donald Trump or not, whether you agree with everything he says or not, he is our one opportunity to choose order over chaos and putting America first over America last,” Lee said. “It’s time to get behind him.”

He said Trump kept his promises that he campaigned on.

“In presidential campaigns, there are always a lot of promises made,” Lee said. “My favorite kinds of political promises are promises kept. Donald Trump has kept promises that he’s made as he’s campaigned in the past. We know what kind of president he will be.”

On Tuesday, Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming became the 20th senator to endorse Trump, and is now the highest-ranking Senate Republican to have done so.

“America was better off under President Donald Trump’s leadership,” Barrasso said in a statement.

The Iowa Caucus kicks off the caucus and primary season. It is scheduled for Jan. 15 in the middle of brutal winter weather pinning down residents in the Midwest. On Saturday, it was -9 in Des Moines, and some areas of the state have wind chill temperatures at -45, expected to last through noon on Tuesday.

  1. TRUMP 2024 – Make America Great Again – America First … Wise Choices!
    Incomplete list here? Where’s Danny and Daddy’s Little Princess … AWOL???

  2. This is nothing more than politicians who are hoping to get Trump supporters to vote for them, too.
    Most of these buffoons would vote for Stalin if the polls said it would get them votes.

  3. Between Donald Trump and the incontinent and demented usurper, Joe “Weekend at Bernie’s” Biden, Donald Trump is far and away the lesser of the two evils.

      • I can’t disagree with you on that, TMA.

        Almost all of my votes in the last 40 years have been for third-party candidates, with most of whom I was heartily in agreement, and none of whom ever won office.

  4. Wonder whom the rest of the free world would like to see in charge of this mess. Because this election will be world-changing, more so than history.

  5. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the deep staters shuffled Nimarata to the front of the pack and pushed her ahead of everyone, just as they did with Old Woodenhead back in 2020.
