Former President Donald Trump is poised to go “all in” to help Republicans recapture the House and Senate during the 2022 midterms and the White House again in 2024, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
Graham, who told Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro Saturday evening that he just finished two days’ worth of playing golf with Trump and that the former president is “mad as hell” and ready to go, adding that he believes Trump will make another bid for a second term because he has “unfinished business.”
“When you look at Trump’s four years compared to Biden’s six months, I like our chances to win the House and Senate in 2022 and to take back the White House in 2024,” Graham said.
“Joe Biden’s administration is out of control, and every day that passes, we appreciate Trump policies more and more.”
“I will be shocked if [Trump] doesn’t run for president in 2024,” Graham continued, adding: “I think he’s all in to make sure we take back the House and the Senate and stop this craziness.”
Graham also said Trump was ready to continue hitting the campaign trail on behalf of favored candidates.
“We have a lot of talented people in the Republican Party. But I can tell you this; if President Trump runs in 2024, he will be the nominee of his party. His policies are standing the test of time,” he said.
While describing the Biden administration as being “in free-fall,” Graham, who ran against Trump for the GOP nomination in 2016, added that “it’s moments like this that remind us why President Trump was a good president” and that Trump “thinks he can fix it.”
“He’s heartbroken about what’s going on in our country and the world at large,” he said of the former president, describing Trump as being “mad as hell” about what may be coming for the country under Biden.
“The border is broken, rampant inflation, crime in the streets, radical Islam is on the rise,” Graham said. [Trump] has a hell of a story to tell about what he did for this country. And more importantly what he can do.”
He also seemed to push back against Republican moderates and others in the GOP who are not fans or backers of Trump.
“This is the party of Donald Trump. If you think otherwise, you are in for a rude awakening,” said Graham.
“[Trump] believes he has unfinished business as president of the United States, and he believes he can put the country in a better position than Biden has it. And I agree with him,” Graham concluded.
