(UnitedVoice.com) – Former President Donald Trump has been out of office for more than a month, but he’s still a force in the GOP. In a recent interview, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) talked about the 45th president’s popularity and what his party should do moving forward.
During a March 8 interview with Axios on HBO, Graham said he still has a relationship with Trump. The senator said that he wants to “harness the magic” of the former president because he has the power to make the Republican Party bigger, stronger, and “more diverse.” Graham explained that he wants to “continue the policies” that Trump pursued to “make America strong.”
Swan: "Yeah. That's what I really don't understand."
Graham: "Well, then you don't understand me very much."

More than 74 million people voted for Trump in the 2020 election. The vast majority of Republican voters have said they’ll vote for him in the next primary if he chooses to run again. Graham is right to want to harness the former president’s magic, he’s the most popular figure in the party in decades. If the GOP wants to grow, they need to take a few pages from the former president’s book.
