Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican from South Carolina, dropped the hammer on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for his unwillingness to work with former President Donald Trump.
“Graham raised the possibility of not supporting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, given a perception McConnell and former President Donald Trump don’t have a good relationship,” reports Breitbart News.
“Graham encouraged McConnell to have that relationship and make the case for Trump-era policies. Otherwise, the South Carolina Republican said McConnell would ‘fail,'” reported Breitbart News.
Then Graham came in with a shocking revelation about Trump and the upcoming 2024 presidential election.
“Well, elections are about the future — if you want to be a Republican leader in the House or the Senate, you have to have a working relationship with President Donald Trump,” Graham said.
“He’s the most consequential Republican since Ronald Reagan,” Graham added. “It’s his nomination if he wants it, and I think he’ll get reelected in 2024. I like Senator McConnell. He worked well with President Trump to get a bunch of judges, including three Supreme Court justices on the bench. They got the tax cuts passed working together.”
“But here’s the question. Can Senator McConnell effectively work with the leader of the Republican Party, Donald Trump?” Graham asked.
“I’m not going to vote for anybody that can’t have a working relationship with President Trump to be a team, to come up with an American First agenda, to show the difference between us and liberal Democrats, prosecute the case for Trump policies, and I’m not going to vote for anybody for leader of the Senate as a Republican unless they can prove to me that they can advocate an American First agenda and have a working relationship with President Trump because if you can’t do that, you will fail.”
