GOP Rep. Dave Joyce refused to answer whether he'd support Trump after his recent comments.
On Saturday, Trump called for the termination of the US Constitution.
"I will support whoever the Republican nominee is," Joyce told ABC News on Sunday.
A GOP congressman refused to answer whether or not he would back Donald Trump after the former president recently suggested suspending the US Constitution.
During an appearance on ABC's "This Week," host George Stephanopoulos pressed Rep. Dave Joyce of Ohio if he would support Trump if the Republican Party selects him in 2024 after his controversial remarks.
"I will support whoever the Republican nominee is," Joyce said. "And just don't think that, at this point, he will be able to get there because I think there's a lot of other good quality candidates out there."
Stephanopoulos told Joyce that his response was "a remarkable statement" and asked again if he would "support a candidate who's come out for suspending the Constitution?"
"Well, you know, he says a lot of things. You have to take him in context. And right now I have to worry about making sure his Republican Governance Group and the Republican majority that we make things work for the American people," Joyce added. "And I can't be really chasing every one of these crazy statements...from any of these candidates that come out."
On his social media platform on Saturday, Trump called for the termination of the Constitution, making the unfounded claim that there has been "massive fraud" from tech giants and the Democratic Party in US elections.
Trump's baseless claim of election fraud came after journalist Matt Taibbi released a series of tweets called "The Twitter Files," Insider previously reported. The tweets, which Taibbi said he published after agreeing to "certain conditions," disclosed internal communications between Twitter workers who made the call to quash a dubious New York Post story regarding President Biden's son, Hunter, in 2020.
Elon Musk, the new CEO of Twitter, claimed that the files were evidence Twitter meddled in the 2020 elections by suppressing free speech, which experts have refuted, Insider previously reported.
Trump's statement about suspending the US Constitution has been met with immediate criticism, including from the White House, which called for his suggestion to be "universally condemned."
"You cannot only love America when you win," White House Spokesperson Andrew Bates told CNN in a statement.
