After that announcement, however, he changed his mind due to an outpouring of support. Now, he says he intends to stay in office.
“Yesterday, I announced my intentions to resign from my office. But shortly thereafter, the outpour of support I received was too great for me to ignore,” he wrote on Twitter. “I will not allow the Democrats to bully me into submission. I will not let them win.”
“I will NOT resign,” he added, concluding his tweet with the hashtag, #MAGA.

There was a time I was afraid to wear my MAGA hat in public. Then I decided I was tired of being afraid, so I put it on and went to the store. I ran into 2 other people wearing theirs, and a teenager (wow) complimented my hat genuinely.
Don't live in fear.
