Republican Senator Lindsay Graham has long been one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies.
Although Joe Biden received 306 votes against Donald Trump’s 232 in the November presidential election, Trump refused to concede defeat.
Although no evidence has been presented, Graham was one of the supporters of Trump’s allegations of election fraud.
However, it turned up during the second Supreme Court case against Trump after the attack on Congress. Graham then held the burning post, where he put his feet down and said, “Enough is enough.”
– Trump and I made a trip. I hate it should end like this, Graham said at the time.
– The answer is no
On Monday this week, Graham reiterated his acceptance of the election result.
– I accept the election result. 2020 is over for me, I’m ready to march, I will withdraw the House and Senate in 2022, Graham told reporters in South Carolina on Monday Mountain.
Earlier this month, however, he pointed out that the Republican Party “could not progress without Trump as a key figure.”
– I would like to tell my Republican colleagues; Can we move forward without President Trump? Graham told Fox News there was no answer USA Today.
The report comes just days before Trump critic Liz Cheney was ousted High job in the Republican Party.
– I have always loved Liz Cheney, but she has decided she cannot grow up with Republican President Trump. I have decided that we can not grow without him, Graham continued.
– Bad things happened
Graham supported any changes in the electoral law ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
Most recently yesterday, he urged Trump and other Republicans to focus on the upcoming midterm elections.
Ahead of the by-elections in November 2022, the Democrats have control over the House of Representatives, while the Senate is divided 50-50. By next year, all seats in the House of Representatives and 34 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be up for election.
– I think there are many who follow the bad things that happened during the election. But I think President Trump and Republicans need to focus on electoral reform and the upcoming election, ”Graham told reporters.
– Ready to go
Since Trump was banned from social media, it has been largely silent from the former president, but he has also sent emails and news releases to journalists to get his message across.
In the reports, he continues to make the false claim that the election was stolen from him, as well as attacked his opponents.
In the state of Marigoba in Arizona, where Trump claimed without documents that he lost the election because of electoral fraud, a new count of more than 2.1 million votes is now taking place.
The U.S. Justice Department is concerned that the rules for the new census open up such a large-scale error, and the NDP says the agency responsible for the census could say Trump won the state.
– I do not know what censorship is in Arizona, but I’m ready to move forward, Graham responded to questions from reporters, according to The Hill.
If Trump does not run, the senator will be one of those Republican presidential candidates in 2024.
Those who did so include Florida Gov. Ron Desantis, South Dakota Gov. Christy Noem and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senators Rick Scott, Marco Rubio and Lindsay Graham.
Graham made headlines in November last year when a conversation between him and Georgia’s Interior Minister Brad Rafenberger was leaked.
Graham, a former Trump ally, has been accused of pushing Rafensberger to invalidate votes in the US presidential election.
– and problem
The phone call is said to have gone this way: state laws regarding ballot signatures and political comments may have caused election workers to accept ballots with inappropriate signatures.
Graham also asked if the Home Secretary had the authority to invalidate all postal ballots in districts with a high number of inappropriate signatures.
Graham has denied that he had proposed that the Home Secretary cast illegal ballots.
– If he feels threatened by that conversation, he has a problem. I think it was a good conversation, at the time Graham said the allegations were ridiculous.
