Can we just go ahead and announce Donald J. Trump as the 2024 GOP nominee?
President Trump has managed to rack up not one but two endorsements from massive GOP donors this week alone—a troubling development for Ron DeSantis.
Bernie Marcus, the legendary businessman and founder of Home Depot, has formally endorsed President Trump as the 2024 GOP nominee for President.
Marcus is one of the biggest and most notable GOP donors, along with real estate tycoon and aerospace industrialist Robert Bigelow, who recently indicated that he was flipping his endorsement from DeSantis to Trump.
One individual shared this clip of Marcus and wrote:
“At 94, Bernie Marcus, co-founder of The Home Depot, breaks his silence to endorse Donald Trump, citing America’s “perilous trajectory” under current policies.
“Like many of you, I am…saddened by what I see happening to America.”
In a stark op-ed, Marcus outlines a grim picture of America’s future, marked by lawlessness, unprotected borders, and educational failures.
He lambasted Soros elected prosecutors for fostering a culture of impunity and criticizes government overreach.
Marcus, who has pledged 90% of his wealth to philanthropy, shares his American Dream story, warning that current economic policies would have stifled his success with The Home Depot.
He calls for unity across party lines to restore America’s founding freedoms and values, endorsing Trump for his “judgment, strength, decisiveness, and courage” in face of global challenges, including the new Middle East conflict and domestic issues.
“Only in America… could being without a job and broke be a great opportunity,” Marcus quotes, urging an end to divisive Republican debates and a focus on saving The American Dream.
Bernie Marcus’s endorsement comes with a plea to Americans to look beyond partisan politics and choose a path of prosperity and security, championing Trump as the leader to confront America’s adversaries and revitalize the nation’s legacy.”

Breitbart News shared this quote from Marcus: “We cannot let his brash style be the reason we walk away from his otherwise excellent stewardship of the United States during his first term in office.”

Just The News didn’t miss the story and provided excerpts of Marcus’ reasoning behind his endorsement:
“I endorse him not only because he has the best chance of winning the general election but because he is the best person to take on and dismantle the administrative state that is strangling America,” he added, before highlighting the ongoing ongoing in the Middle East and praising Trump’s history of maintaining peace abroad.
Brigitte Gabriel remarked: “Bernie Marcus is one of the BEST people in the conservative movement and his endorsement means A LOT.”
THIS IS HUGE!

The MAGA community took the chance to throw barbs at DeSantis over the recent endorsements from both Bernie Marcus and Robert Bigelow.

Marcus made his case in this Real Clear Politics op-ed:
Our southern border is unprotected, and millions of people we know nothing about pour into our nation to receive care and benefits that we cannot afford to provide to our struggling military veterans.
Worse, many of the border crossers may be gang members who commit violent crimes here. Schoolchildren across America cannot read, write, or do basic math, while our educational leaders tell us that they know better than parents how to raise our children.
Working men and women are struggling to provide for their families and must raid their retirement funds just to feed, clothe, and take care of their children.
These are just a few of the problems America is facing after three years of bad government policies. They cannot be our legacy.
