President Donald Trump will go down in history as the most important president of most of our lifetimes when it’s all said and done.
In 2016, he absolutely shocked Hillary Clinton and the democrat party by winning the presidency.
For the next 4 years, democrats lost their minds, and revealed themselves as the anti-American party we already knew they were.
In that same time period, President Trump jump started the republican party, which at that point was led by a group of do-nothing RINOs.
Now, as those same RINOs scramble to take back power, Lindsey Graham says that going forward, Donald Trump needs to be a key figure in rebuilding the republican party.
Graham says that if republicans follow Trump’s lead, they will win in 2022.
“[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. 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 continued. “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.”
Lindsey Graham is correct in his assertion that without Donald Trump, the GOP is DOA.
To Graham's point, the MAGA movement needs to press forward.
President Donald Trump re-energized the republican party, which was essentially on its death bed before he took office.
The Washington Examiner has more on Graham's assessment that Donald Trump continue to be a centerpiece for rebuilding the republican party moving forward:
Sen. Lindsey Graham spoke with Donald Trump following his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial and said the former president is "excited" for 2022.
The South Carolina Republican told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that the former president was grateful to his lawyers but "ready to move on and rebuild the Republican Party."
"He's excited about 2022, and I’m going to go down to talk with him next week, play a little golf in Florida," Graham said, adding that he told Trump, "this MAGA movement needs to continue."
When asked if he felt Trump bore any responsibility for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Graham said, "No, in terms of the law, no. He bears responsibility [for] pushing narratives about the election that I think are not sound and not true, but this was politically protected speech. The speech on January the sixth was not an incitement to violence. Every politician has used the word fight, fight hard, so I don't think that he caused the riot."
"Could the president have done more? Yes," Graham added. "Did he incite this riot by his speech? Absolutely not."
Last week, Lindsey Graham spoke with Hannity, where he gave some stern advice to establishment republicans.
Donald Trump must factor into the republican party moving forward.
Any republican who disagrees is setting the party up for more failures.
