Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) pointed out the difficulty that Democratic candidates will have beating President Trump in the 2020 election during an interview with Fox News on Wednesday.
According to Graham, Democratic candidates will struggle due to the policies they are supporting and agreed with Trump’s assessment of the situation.
“He said something that makes a lot of sense, no matter who they nominate, they’re gonna move the country toward a socialist agenda. Look at what Joe’s going through by talking about being bipartisan. I don’t know if Joe can make it through this primary without becoming a socialist embracing impeachment.”
Graham had high praise for the president, saying that his accomplishments are one major voting factor that will work against his opponents.
“Here’s the president’s ace in the hole,” said Graham. “He’s done a damn good job, and what the other people are offering will take the country backward not forward. Stay on message, Mr. President, you’ve got a good story to tell, tell it.”
He also brought up Trump’s reelection rally, saying that the large crowd turnout was a good sign for the upcoming election cycle.
“To have 25,000 people show up for an hour and a half, there’s some magic there, and if the rest of us in this business don’t appreciate that magic, we’re making a mistake,” said Graham.
As IJR News reported, Trump’s reelection rally was held in Orlando, Florida and was attended by thousands who had started lining up 40 hours before the event began. During his speech, the president claimed that voting for Democrats in 2020 would be a vote for “radical socialism” and promised a great future if he is reelected.
“Together we stared down a broken political establishment and we restored government by and for the people,” Trump said. “As long as you keep this team in place, we have a tremendous way to go. Our future has never looked brighter or sharper.”
