Lindsey Graham Claims Trump Has ‘Some Damage To Repair’ If He Wants To Run In 2024

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on Fox News this week to say that former President Donald Trump has “some damage to repair” if he wants to run again in 2024.

Graham Sounds Off On Trump

Graham told host Sean Hannity that it is likely Trump will win the Republican presidential nomination in two years. They also talked about what will happen during the upcoming series of talks at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, where some senior Republicans will be congregating to discuss the future of the party

“Here’s the question I have,” Graham said, according to Newsweek. “If President Trump decides to run in 2024 and he wins the party’s nomination, will you support him? It’s a time for choosing in that regard. Would you support President Trump if he’s our nominee? Every Republican needs to be asked that question.”

Hannity responded by attacking “the old weak establishment Republican Party” and the failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) during Trump’s time in office.

“I would look at what President Trump did and choose that as my way forward,” Graham continued. “The question for the Republican Party right now is if Donald Trump ran at the primary, he would win going away and the question is why?”

“Why are so many Republicans willing to give him another shot at this? Because they believe in what he did and they believed his policies worked,” Graham said. “And if you don’t see that, if you don’t get that, then you really don’t understand the Republican Party in 2021.”

Graham Doubles Down

Not stopping there, Graham said that the Republican Party will need to embrace Trump’s policy agenda to win, though he acknowledged that there might be some hurdles for Trump to overcome.

“It should be an America First agenda and if President Trump runs, he’s going to have some damage to repair, but I think he’s in great shape to win the primary and could get reelected,” Graham said. “And my question is if he’s the nominee would you support him? I would like to hear a lot of people answer that question.”

Last week, Trump hinted that he may not make a decision about running until after the midterm elections in 2022.

“Everybody wants me to do it, the polls are all saying I have to do it,” Trump said. “I will be making a decision maybe before but possibly more likely right after the 2022 election.”
