Graham Tells Trump 'Do Not Concede' and 'Fight Hard'

Path 27

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has a message for President Donald Trump following the election.

Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo asked Graham on Sunday if he is committed to putting a stop to any “progressive plans” that come before him in the Senate.

“You can take it to the bank. I ran on it. I won overwhelmingly, being an impediment, a block to the most radical, domestic agenda in the history of the country. We will kill it dead in the Senate if you give us the majority,” Graham said.

He added, “We will work with Biden if he wins, but Trump has not lost. Do not concede, Mr. President. Fight hard.”

Graham defended Trump’s allegations of widespread voter fraud and suggested he should have a chance to investigate them, as IJR previously reported.

“Democracy depends upon fair elections. President Trump’s team is going to have a chance to make a case regarding voting irregularities. They deserve a chance to make that case. I’m going to stand with President Trump. If a Democrat were doing this, it’d be cheered on,” Graham said during a zoom call with reporters.

He continued, “We’re not going to let the media intimidate us into exploring whether or not these contests were fairly had.”

Graham won reelection against his Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison.

Graham told reporters he ran his campaign, “To be a reliable vote to stop the most radical agenda being pushed by [House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)] and others in the history of the United States” and “[reaching] across the aisle,” as IJR previously reported.

He added, “When it comes to finding common ground, I will do that.”

When it comes to Biden’s cabinet, Graham is willing to help.

“The vice president deserves a Cabinet, I’ll give him my input about who I could vote for as secretary of state, attorney general… There may be some people that I just can’t vote for because I think they’re unqualified or too extreme,” Graham said.
