The South Carolina Republican additionally issued this warning: “The people who try to erase him are going to wind up getting erased.”
Graham’s feedback got here because the GOP plotted to take away Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from House Republican management over her opposition to Trump’s lies that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
“It’s impossible for this party to move forward without President Trump being its leader because the people who are conservative have chosen him as their leader,” Graham stated. “And you know why they chose him? Because he delivered.”
It’s a far cry from Graham’s anti-Trump tweet in 2016:
If we nominate Trump, we’ll get destroyed…….and we’ll deserve it.
