In what may be one of the “biggest political comebacks in American history,” Senator Lindsey Graham believes that erstwhile President Donald Trump has a “very decent chance” of capturing the presidential election in the United States of America in the year 2024.
Graham, a Republican from South Carolina and a strong associate of Trump, told CNBC on Saturday that he had told the erstwhile president that he had “no chance” of winning the presidential election in 2020, but he added that 2024 was well within his grasp.

Graham stated that he was completely repeating what he had just told him.
He remarked that if he fails again, the truth about his identity and what he has done radically alters. He went on to add that if he came back, it would be one of the most significant political comebacks in American history. And if he wins four more years, he can do tremendous stuff.
Graham, who is presently facing calls to testify in a criminal probe tied to Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, claimed Trump would now be able to place himself as the president of optimism and activity as the economic and political situation degrades under the administration of President Joe Biden.
With all due respect Mr. President, there’s nothing wrong with America’s soul.
The American people are hurting because of your policies.
Out of control crime.
Terrorism on the rise.
Stop lecturing & change your policies before it’s too late.

Graham indicated the former president should regard the 2024 race as an opportunity to “start over,” putting greater focus on what he could do as president.
“All right, you’ve lived through four years of this. You get a chance to start anew,” Graham proposed as a Trump message tactic. “Remember me? I may not be your cup of tea, but when I was president, our border was safe. We experienced the lowest unlawful crossings in 40 years. I did it. When I was president, I stood up to China, and they listened. When I was president, we had the strongest military since Ronald Reagan. When I was president, I destroyed the caliphate. When I was president, we had conservative judges, not liberal judges. He has a story to tell.”
Graham also cautioned that Trump needs to place more of his attention on the management of his personality and how he interacts with the general public.
Graham stated that the issue with Trump is one of a personal nature. He continued by saying that his policies have been successful throughout the course of time. However, in terms of his personality, has he exhausted the people of the United States? What will transpire in the future is yet to be determined.
Graham has additionally been critical of the investigation and raids that the FBI conducted on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. On Saturday, Graham brought up his concerns that there could be “riots in the streets” if the Department of Justice decided to bring charges against Trump.
