A pair of Ohio Republican state lawmakers are looking to honor former President Donald Trump with a day to commemorate his June 14 birthday.

Reps. Jon Cross of Kenton and Reggie Stoltzfus of Paris Township, east of Canton and home to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, asked their colleagues in the Ohio House of Representatives via email to co-sponsor their bill "to celebrate one of the greatest presidents in American history," the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

"Let's show the 3,154,834 Ohio voters who cast their ballot to re-elect Donald J. Trump that we as a legislature recognize the accomplishments of his administration," the email from Cross and Stoltzfus reads.

The New York-born Trump twice won the state, in 2016 and 2020, by more than 400,000 votes both times.

The Enquirer noted that 40 states — including Ohio — honor former President Ronald Reagan on his birthday, Feb. 6, while Illinois enacted Barack Obama Day in 2017.

Democrats already have expressed dissatisfaction, claiming the day is also Flag Day, which celebrates the adoption of the U.S. flag on June 14, 1777.

"I don’t like the idea of changing an existing federal holiday that honors the flag," the Enquirer quoted Democrat Rep. Jeff Crossman of Parma, just south of Cleveland. "I think it’s disrespectful. "
