Lindsey Graham: ‘2024 Is President Trump’s Election to Lose’
'It’s his nomination if he wants it'
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the 2024 presidential election is Donald Trump’s “to lose” should he decide to run again.
The South Carolina Republican said he remembers Trump's presidency fondly, arguing he was the most successful POTUS since former President Ronald Reagan.
“Yes, if he wants it — unless there is something coming out of left field,” Graham said.
“It’s his nomination if he wants it.
"The Republican base appreciated him.
"We don’t appreciate all of the things he sometimes does."
"But from a policy point of view, he was the most successful president since Reagan," he added.
"It’s his nomination if he wants it."
"And he will be in the White House in 2024 if he runs a disciplined campaign.”

“What he should do, in my humble opinion, is remind people how he secured the border, how he took the fight to ISIS and destroyed the caliphate, how we were so much better off internationally, the Iran deal is a nightmare in the making for Israel, regain energy independence,” he continued.
“I think 2024 is President Trump’s election to lose.
"2022 is a blowout year for the Republicans in the House and the Senate if we talk about policy.”
But a Vanderbilt University professor and occasional Joe Biden adviser Jon Meacham warned a campaign to regain the presidency by Donald Trump in 2024 could lead to a constitutional crisis or even a civil war.
Meacham, the author of several presidential biographies, told MSNBC on Thursday that Republicans were "following a man" rather than the Constitution and were willing to do so "whatever the facts maybe."
He also contrasted Republicans standing by President Trump through the impeachment inquiry with the aims of politicians in the founding era, saying such behavior was "precisely what we were fighting against."
