Fox News host Martha MacCallum asked Graham about previous comments in which he suggested that people fear that if they do not have Trump’s support, they will not get elected, according to a video provided by Mediaite.
Graham responded by saying Trump is “the most popular Republican in the country.”
“He’s the most popular Republican in the country by a lot,” Graham said. “If you try to drive him out of the Republican Party, half the people will leave.”
“It doesn’t mean you can’t criticize the president. It means the Republican Party cannot go forward without President Trump being part of it,” Graham continued.
