Senator Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) predicted that former President Donald Trump will lead the Republican “policy” in the coming months and inspire a Republican victory in mid-2022.
Graham made an appearance on the latest Fox News show Hannet The senator predicted that after the host Sean Hanni asked Republicans “not particularly like” the former president, but “want to return to the good times of the former president of the United States,” Trump will become the guiding force for the Republican Party to take over Congress. mechanism. “
Graham said: “I think that in the next few months, Donald Trump will lead the Republican Party to formulate policies and provide us with the energy needed to regain the House and Senate.”
The senator said that Trump will demonstrate his policy-led leadership at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and the former president plans to deliver a speech on February 28. This speech is expected to be Trump’s first important speech since he left office. Only a president has been impeached twice in American history.
Graham said: “Trump will give a speech on Sunday, which will be very policy-centric.” “Every Republican should unite. I think this will help our relationship with independents… …I have never felt better about President Trump’s leadership of the party than it is now.”
He added: “He will position himself as a replacement for Joe Biden.” “I think he will give a speech to unite the Republicans in policy. He has been on the phone. I have been with him all weekend. Together. He wants to win in 2022.”
When asked if Trump plans to seek a non-consecutive second term in 2024, Graham did not answer directly, but said “Stay tuned.” Hannity posed this question, jokingly saying that Graham was a frequent visitor to his performances, and he risked himself as a future “reporter” without a clear answer. Graham joked that when he received the “first check”, he would answer directly.
Trump’s CPAC speech was originally scheduled to be released only a few weeks after his second Senate impeachment trial. The reason was that he allegedly incited a rebellion during the U.S. Capitol riot on January 6 because the upper house failed to reach the 67-vote absolute The majority vote was 57 to 43 acquitted in favor of conviction.
Graham is the only one of the seven Republican senators who voted against conviction, but after assuming the presidency, he remains a staunch ally of Trump. Before the former president’s victory in the 2016 election, Graham was an outspoken opponent of Trump, calling him a “liar” destined to “destroy” the Republican Party.
