Trump lights up Lindsey Graham, has regrets: ‘I blame myself’

Former President Donald Trump laid out this week what he sees as a winning strategy on abortion, which is to leave it up to the states while including exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother.

Pro-life forces were disappointed, claiming that Trump was ceding the national debate to Democrats. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was among those criticizing the presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee and he paid dearly for his opposition.

Taking to Truth Social, Trump said, “I blame myself for Lindsey Graham, because the only reason he won in the Great State of South Carolina is because I Endorsed him!”


With an eye on November, Trump added, “Senator Lindsey Graham and Marjorie Dannenfelser should study the 10th Amendment and States’ Rights. When they do, they should proudly get on with helping Republicans to WIN ELECTIONS, rather than making it impossible for them to do so!”

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannesfelser said in a statement: “We are deeply disappointed in President Trump’s position. Unborn children and their mothers deserve national protections and national advocacy from the brutality of the abortion industry. The Dobbs decision clearly allows both states and Congress to act.”

Trump kept the pressure on both Graham and Dannesfelser in a series of posts.

“Senator Lindsey Graham is doing a great disservice to the Republican Party and to our Country,” he said in a separate Truth Social post. “At first he wanted no Abortions under any circumstances, then he was up to 6 weeks, where you’re allowed Abortion, now he’s up to 15 weeks, where you’re allowed Abortion, but what he doesn’t understand, or perhaps he does, is the Radical Left Democrats, who are destroying our Country, will never approve anything that he or the Republicans want.”

“They love this Issue, and they want to keep it going for as long as Republicans will allow them to do so.,” Trump continued. “Terminating Roe v. Wade was, according to all Legal Scholars, a Great Event, but sometimes with Great Events come difficulties. Many Good Republicans lost Elections because of this Issue, and people like Lindsey Graham, that are unrelenting, are handing Democrats their dream of the House, Senate, and perhaps even the Presidency…”

Trump posted that Graham and Dannesfelser were of no help when Democrats “staged rallies and won Elections they should never have won,” after Roe v. Wade was terminated.

He added, “We cannot let our Country suffer any further damage by losing Elections on an issue that should always have been decided by the States, and now will be!”

In yet another post, Trump blasted Graham for his misplaced priorities.

“Senator Lindsey Graham should spend more time focusing on all of the many people being killed because of our now non-existent Border, and the millions of people dying in senseless, never-ending Wars that he constantly favors and promotes, and should spend less time on taking away our Great Roe v. Wade Victory of sending a complicated and controversial Issue back to the States where, according to Highly Respected Legal Scholars on both sides, it belongs,” he wrote.

He said Democrats “are thrilled with Lindsey, because they want this Issue to simmer for as long a period of time as possible.”

“They are destroying our Country, and they don’t want to talk about Inflation, a Bad Economy, the Horrible Open Border, Rigged Elections, Afghanistan, Ukraine/Russia, or the Attack on Israel, all of which would never have happened if I were President,” he said. “Great job Lindsey!”
