Republican leader Mike Johnson urges the party to 'unite behind Trump'

Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has urged his fellow Republicans to back former president Donald Trump in his bid to succeed Joe Biden.

This comes after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) endorsed Trump just two days before the New Hampshire primary and shelved his presidential campaign, prompting Johnson to make his call, as The Washington Examiner reported.

A rematch between Trump and Biden would likely be set up if Trump were to win the Republican Party's nomination for president in 2024, likely rallying more support behind the current president's most well-loved rival and supporting the claim that Biden cannot win the upcoming election.

“I endorsed President Trump because he delivered on promises to unleash our economy, secure our border, make America energy independent, and achieve peace through strength — and I believe he will do so again as President, while helping us to grow the majority in Congress,” Johnson wrote on social media.

“I encourage Republicans to unite behind President Trump so we can achieve victory in November and end the disastrous Biden presidency.”

Johnson's remarks follow a slew of major Republican endorsements for Trump, including those of previous presidents, millionaire Vivek Ramaswamy,  Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and South Carolina senator Tim Scott, as well as North Dakota governor Doug Burgum.

Other recent important endorsements made for Trump came from Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX).

A little over one week following the Iowa caucuses, in which Trump received 51% of the vote, the New Hampshire primary will take place on Jan. 22.

Trump's victory was thirteen points more than Bob Dole's 1988 record. Trump received over 50% of the vote in New Hampshire in polling that took place before the primary, while former US UN ambassador Nikki Haley received 39%.

The poll which ran from January 16th to the 19th, asked 1,210 people who were likely to vote in the Republican primary. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.8 points.

After the former president's victory in Iowa, Johnson also congratulated Trump saying that the results were a "resounding victory in Iowa!"

"Today, Republican voters turned out amid harsh conditions and showed their resolve to bring an end to the failed economic and open border policies of President Biden. We appreciate every candidate, volunteer, and voter who braved the elements and participated in the great caucus tradition.

"Tonight's vote was an endorsement of President Trump's extraordinary record and his ongoing vision to fix our economy, secure our border, and defend the freedoms and values that make America great.

"With President Trump in the White House and with Republican Congressional majorities, we will work together to build the wall and end the Biden Border Crisis for good, curb inflation and restore our booming economy, rebuild our military, secure our elections, and create prosperity that will last for generations. His decisive and historic victory tonight should move our Party closer to uniting so we can achieve the ultimate victory in November."
