The congressman made the announcement on Wednesday in a text message to the New York Post.
“I support Donald Trump for president. I’ve directly encouraged him to run and he gives me every indication he will,” he wrote. “If Trump doesn’t run, I’m sure I could defeat whatever remains of Joe Biden by 2024.”
Since the start of the 117th Congress, Gaetz has held several rallies across the country, the first of which took aim at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) in her home state in an effort to rally support against her.
He has since teamed up with controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on a national “America First Tour.”
