KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – An East Tennessee congressman has endorsed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Rep. John Duncan Jr. made the announcement Saturday.
In a press release he stated, “With only four percent of the world’s population, we buy 25 percent of the world’s goods. Every country wants into our markets. We have tremendous leverage on trade we have not used. Donald Trump will do that.”
He continued, “Almost all Americans now believe it has been a horrible mistake to spend trillions fighting no-win wars in the Middle East. We must start rebuilding our own country. Donald Trump will do that.”
Rep. Duncan is also supporting Trump because he believes he will enforce immigration laws.
Duncan is a long-serving Republican in the House and the only Republican remaining in Congress who voted against the Iraq War.
