The Alabama Republican Party on Saturday is expected to present former President Donald Trump with a framed copy of a resolution that was passed by state party leaders, proclaiming him “one of the greatest and most effective” presidents in American history.

The resolution passed by the state Republican Party’s executive committee, calls Trump “one of the greatest and most effective presidents in the 245-year history of this Republic”  with an apparent list of his achievements while in office, according to a copy of the resolution obtained by Fox News.

Perry Hooper Jr., a former state representative and a member of the state party’s executive committee, is expected to gift a framed copy of the resolution to Trump  during a Saturday evening reception at Trump’s Palm Beach resort, Fox News said.

‘The resolution, basically, it just talks about the greatness of Donald J. Trump, how he made America great again and I hope other states will follow suit,” Hooper told the conservative news network in an interview.

“It’s just recognizing him for all the great things he has done for America for bringing back American manufacturing, cutting taxes, creating best economy ever, building up our military,” he added.

Among Trump’s achievements, the revisionist history-style resolution which was unanimously passed on Feb. 27 at the state GOP executive committee’s winter meeting in Montgomery, attributes strides in coronavirus vaccine rollouts to Trump calling his handling of COVID-19 shot distribution “one of the most important feats in medical history.” 

The resolution also makes the claim that Trump “accomplished more in 48 months than Joe Biden did in 48 years as a senator and vice-president.”

A growing number of Republicans who remain convinced that Trump is their ticket to gaining Senate majority in next year’s midterms, have made trips down to Mar-a-Lago in recent weeks. Among them, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA).

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) also met with Trump at his resort on Thursday to discuss how they could join forces to find suitable candidates for the 2022 midterms that Trump could back after the former president took aim Republican organizations that have traditionally operated fundraising for the party.
