South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham predicts former President Donald Trump will lead the Republican Party in the coming months and lead the way to victory in the 2022 midterm elections.
Graham made the remark during an appearance on Fox News. The senator believes Trump will be a guiding force in gaining control of Congress for the Republican Party. Host Sean Hannity asked him about Republicans who “don’t particularly like” the former president and instead “want to go back to the good old days.” To this, the senator responded that Trump may be the only leader for Republicans.
“If we can support President Trump and follow his lead, we will win in 2022. If we argue with ourselves, we will lose. And there’s no reason to lose,” Graham noted.
The senator said Trump will demonstrate his political leadership during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2021, where the former president is scheduled to speak on Feb. 28. The speech is expected to be Trump’s first major address since leaving office.
