ALGOP Executive Committee declares Trump one of the greatest presidents of all time

The resolution states that Trump was one of the “greatest and most effective Presidents in the 245-year history of this Republic.”

Then-President Donald Trump at the White House.

The Alabama Republican Party executive committee met Saturday in Montgomery for its annual winter meeting and unanimously passed a resolution that commended former President Donald Trump as one of the greatest presidents in American history.

This resolution was submitted by several ALGOP executive committee members including former state Rep. Perry Hooper Jr. of Montgomery County, Jeana Boggs of Elmore County, Suzelle Josey of Autauga County, Rev. John Killian of Fayette County, Dennis Beavers of Blount County, Linda Overton of Houston County and Ann Bennett of Lee County.

The resolution includes the line: “President Donald J. Trump was one of the greatest and most effective Presidents in the 245-year history of this Republic.”

The resolution was passed without objection.

“I appreciate every member of the Alabama State Republican Executive for voting unanimously for the Resolution honoring President Donald J. Trump and recognizing President Trump as one of the greatest President’s ever,” Hooper said. “My two favorite President’s are Ronald and Donald. Both President Reagan and President Trump Made America Great Again and have the facts to back that statement up! I am also proud of our State Republican Executive Committee for passing my Resolution urging the House Republican Caucus to continue to have Congresswomen Liz Cheney removed as the House Republican Conference Chair for voting to impeach President Trump. President Trump has United the Republican Party! We will be ready to take the House and Senate Majority in 2022 and win the White House in 2024. I personally hope President Trump will run!”

“The media is trying to divide us,” Josey said. “Donald Trump is not going away.”

The resolution cited several of what Republicans view as accomplishments of Trump including:

  • and “initiating the Israel-UAE (and other surrounding nations) accord providing more stability and commerce in the Middle East”
