Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is warning that former President Donald Trump will lose the 2024 election if he stays fixated on his loss in the 2020 election.

During an interview on Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week,” he voiced his worry regarding the outcome of the election for the GOP presidential candidate when asked about Trump’s continuous claims that he won the 2020 presidential election, and not President Joe Biden.
While Graham pointed out that Trump will not be the first to hold such belief as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the same after she lost to Trump in the 2016 election, he added that the claims will only hurt Trump’s chances of reclaiming the White House.
For him, the best way to win next year is to make his vision known to people.
“If President Trump puts the vision out, improving security and prosperity for Americans, he will win. If he looks back, I think he will lose,” Graham stated.
Graham also spoke about the recent ruling by the Colorado Supreme Court that disqualified Trump from holding the presidency and ordering the secretary of state to remove his name from the state’s presidential primary ballot.
Reacting to the ruling, Graham stated, “It’s not a law-based ruling. It is a political decision. The hatred of Trump is so widespread. You know, the Democrats want to pack the Supreme Court, abolish the Electoral College, make D.C. and Puerto Rico a state and national elections through HR-1.”
According to the senator, the state’s supreme court’s ruling was purely political and lacked a constitutional basis. Hence, he believes Trump will beat the ruling when he takes it up to the United States’ Supreme Court, as he has promised.
In his words, “This Colorado Supreme Court made a political decision. In my view, there is no constitutional basis for the decision they rendered. I think it will be a slam dunk in the Supreme Court. Donald Trump will eventually be on the ballot in Colorado.”
Trump and his team have vowed to appeal the ruling, which his campaign has slammed as a “completely flawed decision.”
In a statement not long after the ruling, campaign spokesperson Steve Cheung said, “The Colorado Supreme Court issued a completely flawed decision tonight and we will swiftly file an appeal to the United States Supreme Court and a concurrent request for a stay of this deeply undemocratic decision. We have full confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits.”
