Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said it would be a big mistake to try to “erase” former President Donald Trump from the Republican Party, according to The Daily Caller.
“I hope people in our party understand the party itself. If you’re wanting to erase Donald Trump from the party, you’re going to get erased,” Graham said.
“Most Republicans like his policies. A lot of Republicans like his style,” Graham continued. “A lot of people are disappointed with him personally at times but appreciate the outcomes he’s achieved for our country.”
The senator was asked if he thinks Trump will try to form another political party.
“I hope he doesn’t,” Graham responded, saying that his wish is for Trump to “stay the leader of the Republican Party.” He insisted the Trump presidency was successful for conservatives and “a good four years for judges, for rebuilding the military, for bringing order to the border, for historic peace agreements in the Mideast.”

Graham also noted that Trump successfully appointed three Supreme Court justices: “I hope President Trump understands that his legacy and his best future lies with the Republican Party.”
The House of Representatives voted Jan. 13 to impeach Trump for the second time for allegedly inciting insurrection, after a rally turned into a riot as a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6
Ten House Republicans voted to impeach Trump, led by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney. According to one report, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is considering voting for impeachment and on Tuesday said the rioters “were fed lies” and were “provoked by the president.”
