WATCH: Lindsey Graham Says If GOP Wins Mid-Phrases In 2022, It Will Show Trump's Social gathering "Not Useless"
Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election. The GOP was also unable to take the house and lost control of the Senate in January. Most viewers would realize that Trump was obstructing the party, especially in the suburbs.
But few members of the GOP were ready to stand up and say they want to move on without the former president. And those who did it were cruelly punished by many within the party.
Few have advanced the idea of Trump's importance more than Lindsey Graham. Once a bitter opponent of the New York businessman, the South Carolina senator is now his number one flatterer.
Graham spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Road to Majority Conference on Friday. He told the assembly that the Democrats would abolish the electoral college and convert Washington DC and Puerto Rico into states.
The South Carolina Senator continued:
“If we win in 2022, that means Trump's party is not dead and buried, it is still alive. It means we stopped the most radical agenda in human history that came out of the house. If we can win a seat in the Senate, it means that we can have a say in the judges they choose and many other things. "

Graham is not wrong. If the Republicans retake the House and Senate in 2022, Joe Biden won't be able to achieve much despite his presidency. But risking everything for Donald Trump could be the wrong strategy for the GOP.
