Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he wants to continue polices that will make America strong. During an interview on Sunday, he stressed the best way forward for the Republican Party is a party influenced by President Trump.
The South Carolina lawmaker praised the 45th president’s electoral success, while also noting no other Republican candidate has garnered as much support from American voters.
Additionally, Graham said he hopes Republican leaders will work with President Trump and suggested Trump could take the party to new heights.
“He could make the Republican Party something that nobody else I know could make it,” stated the senator said. “He could make it bigger, he could make it stronger, he could make it more diverse and he also could destroy it.”
Graham’s comments came after President Trump recently spoke to supporters at the CPAC in an effort to solidify his leadership role in the party.
Swan: “Yeah. That’s what I really don’t understand.”
Graham: “Well, then you don’t understand me very much.”
