The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook

Two Ohio lawmakers are reportedly seeking support from their fellow legislators to mark former President Donald Trump's birthday in that state as "President Donald J. Trump Day."

State Reps. Reggie Stoltzfus and Jon Cross reached out to lawmakers in the Ohio House on Friday, asking them to "recognize the accomplishments of [Trump's] administration, and [show] that the Ohio House believes it is imperative we set aside a day to celebrate one of the greatest presidents in American history." 

The lawmakers are seeking to designate June 14, Trump's birthday, as the holiday in question. The news was first reported in the Ohio Capitol Journal, which said it obtained the co-sponsor request sent by Stoltzfus and Cross. 

In addition to being Trump's birthday, the United States also marks June 14 as Flag Day, commemorating the date in 1777 on which the Continental Congress officially adopted the flag of the United States.
