Lindsey Graham Says That ‘If We Can Get Behind President Trump And Follow His Lead, We Will Win In 2022’

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) spoke out on Monday night to urge Republicans to stay loyal to former President Donald Trump, saying that moving forward, he is the “alternative” to President Joe Biden.

Graham Sends Message To Republicans

Graham went so far as to say that Republicans will win the 2022 midterm elections if they stay loyal to Trump.

“[H]e will position himself as the alternative to Joe Biden. He, I think, will make a speech that will unify Republicans on policy,” he said. “That I think he’s been working the phones. I was with him all weekend. He wants us to win in 2022.”

“And stay tuned,” he continued. “I think you’re going to see over the next couple of months, Donald Trump lead the Republican Party on policy and give us the energy we need to take back the House and the Senate.”

“The Democrats are doing their part,” Graham added. “If we can get behind President Trump and follow his lead, we will win in 2022. If we argue with ourselves, we’re going to — we’re going to lose. And there’s no reason to lose.”

Graham Meets With Trump

This comes after Graham met with Trump over the weekend at Mar-a-Lago, and he told The Hill that they “just talked about the 2022 cycle.”

“He’s very involved in helping the team win,” Graham added, saying that Trump “made a bunch of phone calls,” specifically with GOP senators, and is “trying to get the best team on the field.”

When asked if there was any indication that Trump would run for president again in 2024, Graham simply said, “Stay tuned,” according to The New York Post.

Graham Slams Richard Burr

This comes days after Graham said that the decision of retiring GOP Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina to vote in favor of convicting Trump in his impeachment trial makes the former president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump a shoe-in to win the 2022 Republican nomination to succeed Burr.

“The biggest winner of this whole impeachment trial I think is Lara Trump,” Graham said.

“My dear friend Richard Burr, who I like and I’ve been friends to a long time, just made Lara Trump almost the certain nominee for the Senate seat in North Carolina to replace him if she runs, and I certainly would be behind her because I think she represents the future of the Republican Party,” he added.
