When they faced off in the 2016 Republican party, Lindsey Graham talked about how Donald Trump would destroy the Republican party. And the prediction was right. It’s now 2021 and Democrats are in control of the White House, the senate and the House of Representatives.
But Graham has certainly changed his opinion of Trump. He went from one of the ex-president’s biggest critics to one of his biggest supporters. During a weekend appearance on CBS, Graham claimed that Trump is the best face for the Republican party.
The South Carolina senator was also queried about the looming impeachment trial by host Margaret Brennan. After Graham argued against and impeachment trial, Brennan asked, “Does any of that deserve a reprimand?”
“I think I’m ready to move on,” Graham answered. “I’m ready to end the impeachment trial because I think it’s blatantly unconstitutional.”
Brennan pressed, “You still believe President Trump is the best face for the Republican Party?”
Graham told her, “Yeah!” Graham replied. “I think Donald Trump’s policies serve the country well. I think Donald Trump has to rehabilitate himself as a politician.”
