Trump will get GOP’s 2024 nomination if he wants it, top Republican says
The Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nomination belongs to former President Donald Trump – provided he wants it, a top GOP lawmaker said Wednesday night.
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., made the claim during an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“Unless there’s something coming out of left field I don’t see coming, it’s his nomination if he wants it,” Graham told guest host Pete Hegseth. “The Republican base appreciated him. We don’t appreciate all the things he does sometimes. But from a policy point of view, he was the most successful president from a conservative’s point of view since Ronald Reagan.”
“[Trump] will be in the White House in 2024 if he runs a disciplined campaign,” Graham said.
