Sen. Lindsey Graham Issues Major Warning To Mitch McConnell
Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from the state of South Carolina, has been consistently issuing warnings to the Republican Party that former President Donald Trump is the face of the GOP, but now he’s firing off a warning shot at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell concerning the same issue.
According to Graham, who made an appearance on Fox News program, “Hannity,” on Wednesday evening, leading the Senate GOP means following the former president. If McConnell can’t do that, he needs to get out of the way.
“Elections are about the future,” Graham went on to say. “If you want to be a Republican leader in the House or the Senate, you have to have a working relationship with President Donald Trump.”
“He’s the most consequential Republican since Ronald Reagan. It’s his nomination if he wants it, and I think he’ll get reelected in 2024,” Graham continued.
But years before the next presidential election, there will be a decision on who leads the Senate GOP, and Graham suggested he could not vote for McConnell, who has broken with Trump after Jan. 6.
“I’m not going to vote for anybody for leader of the Senate as a Republican unless they can prove to me that they can advocate an ‘American First’ agenda and have a working relationship with President Trump, because if you can’t do that, you will fail,” the South Carolina senator concluded.
