Zeldin Facing Growing Criticism for Dangerous Stance Favoring Arming Teachers in the Classroom

New York, NY - With Trump looking to run again in 2024, it’s important to remember that Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin has never been closer to the disgraced president.

Here’s a recap of how Lee Zeldin has stood in lockstep with Trump: 

  • Flaunted Trump’s “complete & total” endorsement for governor despite Trump being widely unpopular across the state. 
  • Zeldin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows exchanged texts in order to push election conspiracy falsehoods and plan a public campaign to discredit the 2020 election results.
  • Zeldin was the “point man” during Donald Trump's impeachment trial and defended him more than any other Republican. 
  • Zeldin voted in line with Trump’s positions nearly 90% of the time in Congress.
  • Before the dust had even settled after the Capitol attack on January 6th, Lee Zeldin voted with insurrectionists and Donald Trump to throw out the 2020 presidential election results.
  • Zeldin voted against the creation of the January 6th commission and suggested as recently as this past summer that we’ll “never know for sure” who actually won the presidential election. 

  • As Donald Trump is under investigation for putting national security at risk, Zeldin has consistently doubled down on defending the scandal-prone President.
