Ohio state Reps. Reggie Stoltzfus of Paris Twp. and Jon Cross of Kenton are hopeful that they can get their state to designate June 14 as “President Donald J. Trump Day” day.
That date is Trump’s birthday and also recognized nationally as Flag Day, a holiday Trump liked because of his reverence for the American flag.
“Former President Donald J. Trump was our 45th President of the United States and against great odds, accomplished many things that have led our nation to unparalleled prosperity,” the pair wrote to fellow lawmakers in a cosponsor request.
Trump won the state of Ohio with more than three million votes, and Cross and Stoltzfus feel that recognizing him would help give Trump a legacy and help voters that might feel “marginalized” to heal.
Other lawmakers were decided less friendly to the idea, given the animus toward Trump after the Capitol riot earlier this month.
