Donald Trump is turning on fellow Republican Lindsey Graham for levying a mild critique against him. At a recent rally, Trump said that he’d consider pardoning the January 6th rioters if he wins the presidency in 2024. When asked about Trump’s comments on CBS’s Face The Nation, Graham replied that “I don’t want to send any signal that it was okay to defile the Capitol.” Graham then called it “dangerous” and “inappropriate” for Trump to make such a promise.
Trump responded to Graham’s criticism this week during a Newsmax interview. The former president said, “well Lindsey Graham’s wrong. I mean, Lindsey’s a nice guy but he’s a RINO. Lindsey’s wrong.” Throughout his life and certainly, throughout his political career, Trump has expected nothing but total loyalty from his allies and subordinates. Anyone who crosses Trump even slightly faces his wrath, and that’s exactly what happened to Lindsey Graham in this instance.
