Lindsey Graham Urges Trump To Fight Back: The President 'Should Not Concede’
'The media doesn’t decide who becomes president'
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has urged President Donald Trump to "fight back" and not concede the presidential election amid allegations of voter fraud in swing states.
The Republican senator warned that his party would never win the presidency again if Trump does not stand his ground.
During an interview on Fox News “Sunday Morning Futures" with host Maria Bartiromo, Graham stated, "the media doesn’t decide who becomes president," before reminding her the country is dealing with a “contested” presidential election.
“If they did, you would never have a Republican president forever,” Graham added.
“So we’re discounting them.”
“So, what happened?” Graham continued.
“The Trump team has canvassed all early voters and absentee mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania, and they found over 100 people they think were dead, but 15 people that we verified to have been dead, who voted," the senator added.
"But here’s the one that gets me: Six people registered after they died and voted. In Pennsylvania, I guess you’re never out of it.”
“If Republicans don’t challenge and change the U.S. election system, there’ll never be another Republican president elected again,” Graham warned.
“President Trump should not concede,” he added.
“We’re down to less [than] 10,000 votes in Georgia,” Graham clarified.
“He’s going to win North Carolina. We’ve gone from 93,000 votes to less than 20,000 votes in Arizona, [with] more votes to be counted.”
Graham also urged Republican Senate candidate John James to hold off on concession, referencing the alleged “system failure” in Michigan computer voting.
“Keep fighting for every legal and live vote,” Graham warned.

Graham also touched on the Erie postal worker who signed a sworn affidavit claiming he witnessed supervisors backdating ballots.
“To my Republican colleagues out there, we have to fight back, or we will accept our fate.”
Graham announced last week he would be donating $500,000 to help assist the legal fight in the court system for Trump’s re-election campaign as they challenge the election results in several states.
As the media continues to push the 'Biden has won' narrative, Trump is still yet to concede.
The Trump legal team is now preparing to roll out lawsuits to contest the count's legality in states like Pennsylvania.
