COLUMBIA — U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said the FBI’s unprecedented search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home will likely only strengthen Trump’s resolve to run in 2024 to return to the White House.
“I believe he was going to run before. I’m stronger in my belief now,” South Carolina’s senior senator told reporters Aug. 9. “I think President Trump is determined now more than ever to straighten this country out.”
His comments came as he stood beside Gov. Henry McMaster to blast Democrats for the $740 billion spending package narrowly pushed through the U.S. Senate two days earlier on a party-line vote, which they contend will worsen rather than reduce inflation.
