Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), a fervent supporter of Donald Trump, took to social media platform X (formerly Twitter) on Presidents’ Day to heap praise on the former president and potential 2024 running mate.

In a post on her congressional account, Greene shared a photo of Trump with a pen in hand, writing: “Happy Presidents’ Day to my favorite President and yours, President Donald J. Trump!”

On her personal account, the congresswoman doubled down, posting a picture of herself with Trump and stating: “Wishing a tremendous Presidents’ Day to the man who will make America great again! I will always stand with President Trump and I’m so excited to send him back in the White House!”

Greene’s assertion that Trump is “everyone’s” favorite president was met with skepticism from critics, who pointed to a recent survey ranking him last among U.S. presidents. The Presidential Greatness Project survey of scholars and social scientists placed President Joe Biden at 14th, Barack Obama 7th, Bill Clinton 12th, Ronald Reagan 16th, and George W. Bush 32nd.
