Even before losing his bid for a second term and amplifying lies that resulted in a deadly siege on the U.S. Capitol in hopes of overturning the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump was a historically unpopular President.

He lost the popular vote in 2016 by millions of votes, only ascending to victory thanks to the electoral college. Over the course of his term, Trump's average approval rating never rose above 50 percent. In 2020, he once again lost the popular vote by millions, along with the electoral college vote.

Nevertheless, Trump's supporters still continue to enshrine him as a political hero of the right.

Now, two lawmakers in Ohio—which Trump won in 2020—are looking to honor the former President with a statewide holiday.

Republican State Representatives Reggie Stoltzfus and Jon Cross proposed legislation making June 14 "President Donald J. Trump Day."

The pair wrote in a memo to their colleagues:

"Let's show the 3,154,834 Ohio voters (a record and historic number of votes received for President in Ohio) who cast their ballot to re-elect Donald J. Trump that we as a legislature recognize the accomplishments of his administration and that the Ohio House believes it is imperative we set aside a day to celebrate one of the greatest presidents in American history."

In addition to being Trump's birthday, June 14 is also Flag Day, which celebrates the adoption of the first American flag on June 14, 1777.

While Trump's supporters would likely embrace the idea, his critics thought it was absurd.

Some thought of other days to "honor" the former President's legacy.

Trump's presidency was, however, historic. He became the first President ever to be impeached more than once during his term. With 10 House Republicans voting in favor of his impeachment, Trump holds the distinction of spurring the most bipartisan presidential impeachment in American history.

Twisters, directed by Lee Isaac Chung, is a standalone sequel to 1996's Twister that's received generally positive reviews from critics since its release this past weekend. The movie made $80.5 million over its opening weekend—just shy of what Harris raised in the immediate aftermath since President Joe Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed her to be his successor.
