Will the United States see a second term for former President Donald Trump? This is the question that has been on the minds of millions of American voters, especially considering that many believe we should currently be living a second Trump administration term.
But alas, the president today is not the same we had a year ago, in either person or prestige. What we have though is an upcoming presidential election in 2024, because, as of yet, we still have at least some semblance of democracy.
Trump has made no secret of the fact that he too believes he should be serving a second term and some of his supporters believe he can win in 2024, if (and only if) some substantial reform is made to the election security systems in the years between now and the next presidential election.
One such supporter is South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham who said that if the former president wants to run again in 2024, he will have “some damage to repair.” The former Senate Judiciary Committee chairman made his comments to Fox News’ Sean Hannity earlier in the week when he asserted that he believed “if the primary were held tomorrow … if he chose to run,” Trump would win a Republican primary.
“Here’s the question I have, if President Trump decides to run in 2024, and he wins the party’s nomination, will you support him?” Graham asked during Monday night’s appearance on Fox News.
The leading Senate Republican said that he “would look at what President Trump did and choose that as my way forward,” saying that Republicans want to strengthen their party nationwide, and embracing Trump’s policies in 2024 might be the way to do that.
“It should be an America First agenda and if President Trump runs, he’s going to have some damage to repair, but I think he’s in great shape to win the primary and could get reelected,” Graham said.
He continued, “And my question is, if he’s the nominee would you support him? I would like to hear a lot of people answer that question.”
