Meijer voted to impeach Trump.
Meijer, first elected to Congress last fall, said he is running for reelection but noted it’s unclear what impact Trump’s endorsement will have given his district lines haven’t been finalized.
Meijer had told CNN in January that he saw his vote to impeach Trump as a step toward “accountability” following the former President’s response to the US Capitol insurrection. “I was hoping to see the President rapidly try to de-escalate, try to denounce, try to stop the violence from occurring, and he abandoned his post,” Meijer told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the time.
“To me, that was disqualifying. My heart broke in that time, seeing folks ransacking the Capitol. And since then, the President has not accepted responsibility. I hold the seat that was held by Gerald Ford for 25 years before he was elevated to the White House. He pardoned Richard Nixon, but that was after Richard Nixon resigned and was held accountable for his actions. And here, there must be accountability.”
Gibbs thanked Trump on Twitter:
Thank you for the endorsement President Trump! It was an honor to serve in your administration and you can bet I’ll continue the fight in Congress! pic.twitter.com/O5bM9phh5q
