Tuesday on Hannity, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gave his take on the apparent war in the Republican Party between Sen. Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and former President Donald Trump.
Graham gave McConnell credit for helping Trump get conservative judges confirmed and for passing the 2017 tax cut with a very narrow Republican majority.
But Graham also said that Trump was going to be indispensible in retaking the Senate in 2022. “What I would say to Senator McConnell: I know that Trump can be a handful, but he is the most dominant figure in the Republican Party. We don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of taking the majority without Donald Trump.”
“If you don’t get that, you’re just not looking,” Graham continued. “He was a hell of a president on all of the things that conservatives really believe in. It was a consequential presidency.”
Graham acknowledged that Trump would continue to be blamed for the January 6 riot and that Trump would need to make some changes in the future to “reach [his] potential,” but he said, “at the end of the day, we are going to hang separately, or we are going to hang together as Republicans.”
