Jim Jordan touts Trump’s outsider achievements

Rep. Jim Jordan, a top Republican and one of President Trump’s staunchest allies in Congress, promoted Trump as a tough, outsider president who cares about people.

“He’s taken on the swamp, all of the swamp,” Jordan, who is founder of the ultraconservative House Freedom Caucus, said at the Republican National Convention Monday.

Jordan has led the defense of the president in Congress, where Democrats impeached him in December and continue to investigate his administration and fight for his tax returns in court relentlessly. Jordan spent part of Monday defending Postmaster General Louis DeJoy from Democratic attacks on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, on which he serves as the top Republican.

During his RNC speech, Jordan, of Ohio, described the president pushing through the agenda he promised during his campaign, despite relentless attacks from Democrats who began investigating before he even took office.

“They tried the Russia hoax, the Mueller investigation, and the fake impeachment,” Jordan said. “But in spite of this unbelievable opposition, this president has done what he said he would do — taxes cut, regulations reduced, economy growing, lowest unemployment in 50 years, out of the Iran deal, embassy in Jerusalem, hostages home from North Korea, a new USMCA agreement, and of course, he’s building the wall and rebuilding our economy as we speak. I love the president’s intensity and his willingness to fight every day in Washington for our families.”

Jordan said most people never see the more human side of the president and recounted the story of the death of his nephew, a young man who was killed in a car accident.

Jordan said Trump got on the phone with the man’s parents.

“That’s the president I’ve gotten to know for the last four years,” Jordan said. “The president has shared private moments like this with soldiers’ families, victims of violent crime, and people who’ve had businesses destroyed by the mob. That’s the individual who’s made America great again and who knows America’s best days are still in front of us.”
