Despite starting out as one of the former president’s most ardent critics, the South Carolina Republican senator has become one of Trump’s closest allies in Congress.
how did he do that? By understanding Trump’s psychology, we can understand what drives the billionaire businessman.
That’s why it’s worth being careful when Graham speaks publicly about what he’s been telling Trump privately.
It’s just such a storyline that Graham is pitching to Trump at the time. The man whose voters regretted ousting him four years ago now has a chance to right that wrong.
Again, Graham is channeling Trump in an interview on CNBC.
That’s a compelling argument for Trump. He is, as always, deeply invested in the idea of second his chances. In 2006, when Miss USA crown winner Tara Connor was rumored to have been spotted drinking in a bar while underage, Trump refused to strip her of the crown. Trump owned the Miss USA event.)
Of course, there’s one pretty big problem with Graham’s comeback kid story as a whole. Trump still refuses to admit he lost the 2020 election.
“Now that the FBI and DOJ are embroiled in a massive and definitive election manipulation scam, are they going to change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election?” Trump asked Monday via his Truth Social website. did. “They should!!!”
Of course, it’s difficult to come back when you can’t admit that you lost in the first place.
But at least in terms of direction, Graham is right about what Trump’s candidacy in 2024 will look like. It would be a sort of ‘I told you so’ message, hoping there would be enough buyer reflection among those who voted for Joe Biden to turn Trump back on as president. .
