“Congressman Paul Gosar has been a staunch supporter of our America First agenda and, more importantly, America,” Trump said in a statement. “Paul is a highly respected Congressman in Arizona, strong on crime, borders, our military, and our veterans. He continually fights for lower taxes, fewer regulations, and our great, but besieged Second Amendment. Paul Gosar has my full backing! and total! “

Gosar was reelected in 2020 to represent Arizona’s fourth congressional district, winning more than 60 percent of the vote. He is not currently participating in a competitive reelection campaign.

Earlier this month, Gosar, one of Trump’s most ardent allies in Congress, posted an animated video on Twitter showing him and his fellow Republican representatives.

So far, Gosar has rejected calls to apologize for the video, arguing that it “contributes directly to the understanding and discussion of the real-life battle resulting from this administration’s open border policies.”

“I do not advocate violence towards anyone. I never did. It was not my purpose to upset anyone,” Gosar said on the floor of the Chamber. “I voluntarily removed the cartoon, not because it was a threat in itself, but because some thought it was. Out of compassion for those who really felt offended, I censored myself.”

Gosar is just the twenty-fourth US lawmaker to be censored in the House in more than 200 years. His censure marked the second time Democrats have moved to remove a Republican lawmaker from his committee assignments this year, having done it to Greene in February for his acceptance of far-right conspiracy theories.
