Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced that he is voting Monday to reelect President Donald Trump with just over 70 days to go.
Graham, in an opinion article, argued that the president has “delivered” on his promises, saying that “his record is clear.” He also downplayed criticisms from a small, outlier group of Republicans who announced they would vote for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden last week.
“To some, President Trumps style and behavior are problematic. Others believe President Trump is just what the doctor ordered – a bull in a china shop,” Graham wrote. “Not only do they approve of what President Trump is doing, they approve of the manner in which hes doing it and believe it should have been done a long time ago.”
Among Trumps accomplishments, according to the GOP senator, are rebuilding a military that was left “broken down” under the prior administration, confirming about 200 district and circuit court judges and two Supreme Court justices, cutting taxes and deregulating the economy, and touted Trumps replacement of NAFTA with the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
“President Trump has pushed back against Chinese expansion, Chinese misbehavior, intellectual property theft, currency manipulation, and their role in spreading the coronavirus,” he wrote, referring to the CCP virus. He added: “President Trump has been a steadfast pro-life president and is standing up for religious liberties throughout the world.”
He also touted Trumps mantle of “law and order” amid protests, violence, and unrest that was embraced by far-left agitators earlier this year.
