The National Republican​ Senatorial Committee has presented its first Champion for Freedom Award to former President Donald Trump, the organization announced Monday. ​

As the group met in Palm Beach, Sen. Rick Scott, a former Florida governor, presented the award to Trump ​for appointing three justices to the Supreme Court, cutting middle-class taxes and securing the southern border, the NRSC said in a release.

It said the ​honor recognizes “conservative leaders who have worked tirelessly to create good jobs, protect the values that make our country great, and stop the Democrats’ socialist agenda.​”

​​​“President Trump is a proven champion for all Americans,” ​said Scott, the NRSC chairman. 

“Throughout his administration, he made clear his commitment to getting government out of the way of people’s success, paving the way for American families and job creators to reach new heights. President Trump fought for American workers, secured the border, and protected our constitutional rights,” he said.
