Graham stated that the country needs a leader who can “secure our border and bring order out of chaos”, someone who can “take the fight to the terrorists”, and someone who can “impress the Israelis and the Arabs”. He further explained that Trump is the best solution to the current problems due to his experience and knowledge. He believes that Trump has “unfinished business” and that no one else can do what he has done.
At this time, Trump is the only declared candidate for the 2024 GOP ticket. However, there is speculation that Governor Ron DeSantis, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and others may join him soon.
Lindsey Graham’s endorsement of Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential election has been met with both praise and criticism from both sides of the political aisle.

It remains to be seen who will ultimately join Donald Trump in his bid for the 2024 presidential election. However, it is clear that Lindsey Graham’s endorsement of Trump has sparked a conversation about the future of the Republican party and what role Trump will play in it.
