Conservative voters understand that President Donald Trump single-handedly carried the republican party back to relevancy.
For 8 years, republicans did nothing while Barack Obama and Joe Biden made the country unrecognizable in the worst possible ways.
Very few members of the GOP supoported Donald Trump when he announced he was running for president in 2016.
Now, lines have been drawn, and many members of the party now realize that President Donald Trump saved the GOP from certain extinction.
Senator Lindsey Graham is one of the republicans who recognizes that the party still belongs to Donald Trump, and it will go only as far as he carries it moving forward.
Graham recently spoke to Fox News, where he proclaimed that the party cannot move forward without President Trump.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Thursday that the Republican Party cannot continue without former President Donald Trump.
“I would just say to my Republican colleagues: 'Can we move forward without President Trump?' The answer is no,” Graham said in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity.
Graham, who became a close ally of Trump during his presidency, made the remark ahead of an expected vote to oust Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., as chair of the House Republican Conference next week because of her efforts to publicly denounce Trump's lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.
“I've always liked Liz Cheney, but she's made a determination that the Republican Party can't grow with President Trump. I've determined we can't grow without him,” Graham told Hannity.
People are attracted to the “Trump Republican Party,” Graham said, because of economic populism and the “America first” agenda.
“If you don't get that as a Republican, you're making the biggest mistake in the history of the Republican Party,” he said. “The reason our party is growing with minorities and with working men and women is because President Trump appears to be on the side of people working really hard, appears to be on the side of opportunity not dependency, because he is.”
Lindsey Graham Explains that the GOP Needs President Trump
The Washington Times has more from Senator Graham:
Sen. Lindsey Graham deemed the future of the GOP dependent on former President Donald Trump during an interview conducted by Fox News host Sean Hannity that aired Thursday.
In doing so, Mr. Graham also made clear he disagrees with Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the chair of the House Republican Conference, and her insistence that their party leave the former president behind it.
“I would just say to my Republican colleagues, can we move forward without President Trump? The answer is no,” Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, said on the “Hannity” program.
“I’ve always liked Liz Cheney but she’s made a determination that the Republican Party can’t grow with President Trump. I’ve determined we can’t grow without him,” Mr. Graham added.
Ms. Cheney, the third-ranked Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, has faced efforts to oust her from that role in recent days over her repeated public criticisms of Mr. Trump, particularly of his unfounded assertions that voter fraud was responsible for his failed reelection bid.
“Trump is seeking to unravel critical elements of our constitutional structure that make democracy work — confidence in the result of elections and the rule of law,” she wrote in an op-ed this week.
Ther fact of the matter is that Graham is 100% correct.
The GOP needs President Donald Trump, and the American people want him.
