Sen. Lindsey Graham plans to meet with former President Donald Trump to “talk about the future of the Republican Party,” The New York Times reported.

Lindsey Graham plans to meet with Trump to discuss the future of the GOP and to urge him to give up on ‘revenge’

On Friday evening, the South Carolina Republican told reporters that he would meet with Trump in the coming weeks.

The conversation’s focus will be on encouraging the former president to help the GOP take back the House and the Senate in 2022, Politico said.

“I’m going to try and convince him that we can’t get there without you, but you can’t keep the Trump movement going without the GOP united,” Graham told reporters.

“If we come back in 2022, then, it’s an affirmation of your policies,” he added. “But if we lose again in 2022, the narrative is going to continue that not only you lost the White House, but the Republican Party is in a bad spot.”

Graham also warned Trump that attacking his rivals won’t help secure future election victories, The New York Times reported.

“If it’s about revenge and going after people you don’t like, we’re going to have a problem,” he said.

It has been reported that Trump is threatening to create a new political party to go after Republican senators willing to convict him in his impeachment trial .

The former president has been discussing using the ‘Patriot Party’ to pressure GOP senators not to convict him, The Washington Post reported.

The Republican Party is currently divided after the election loss and deadly insurrection on January 6.

Republicans are facing a “no-win situation,” experts told Insider .

There is debate as to whether the GOP should appease die-hard Trump supporters or distance themselves and attempt to court more moderate Republicans.

Experts told Insider that most Republican lawmakers are still trying to assess what role Trump will have in the party and how much sway he continues to have with voters.

Mexican-Made Golden Trump Statue Turns Heads At CPAC

A golden statue of former President Donald Trump that caused a stir at the annual US gathering of conservatives was made in Mexico,  a country he frequently ‘demonized.’

The statue is large, complete with a golden head and Trump’s trademark suit jacket with a white shirt and red tie. 

Video and pictures of the tribute being wheeled through the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, went viral on Friday.

The conference is seen as a vital gathering of the Republican right, and this year has become a symbol of Trump’s continued grip on the party, despite losing the 2020 presidential election. 

The artist behind the massive statue, Tommy Zegan, has revealed that it was ironically made in Mexico, a country that has been the target of Trump’s policies over the years. 

“It was made in Mexico,” Zegan told Politico’s Playbook newsletter. 

Zegan spent over six months crafting the 200lb fiberglass statue with the help of three men in Rosarito, where he then transported it to Tampa, Florida, where it was painted in chrome, then hauled it from there to CPAC.

‘It was sabotage’: McConnell ally tells CNN that Trump destroyed GOP’s Senate majority

The feud between former President Donald Trump and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) shows no signs of slowing down, and a McConnell ally on Thursday said the former president was to blame for costing Republicans the Senate.

Scott Jennings, a CNN political commentator who has also worked on McConnell’s Senate campaigns, told the network that it’s clear that Trump was to blame for his party’s losses in the two Georgia Senate runoff elections.

“It’s pretty clear what happened: a whole bunch of Trump people didn’t turn out because, shockingly, they were listening to Donald Trump when he told them their votes didn’t count anymore,” Jennings said. “It was a sabotage and it was obvious to anybody who has even a little bit of political professional expertise.”

Jennings went on to say that the Republican Party cannot win if it simply becomes a Donald Trump personality cult.

“It’s pretty clear that Donald Trump overall was a net drag on the Republicans because we don’t control anything now,” he said. “He lost the White House, and that was before January the 6th. And so what I think the party has to do is find a way to hold the coalition together.”

Hillary Clinton effortlessly mocked Trump after his Atlantic City hotel was demolished

Much like his presidency, Donald Trump’s real estate empire is now starting to crumble around him as evident by the demolition of his former hotel and casino in New Jersey, known as Trump Plaza on Wednesday.

The once luxury 32-story complex situated on the Atlantic City boardwalk had fallen into disrepair and ruin after being closed to the public in 2014 after suffering a downturn in profits at the turn of the century combined with Trump filing for bankruptcy.

The implosion of the building was watched by thousands online and there was much schadenfreude going around as another piece of Trump’s image came tumbling down.

It was quite the moment and we’re just sorry that Trump isn’t allowed on Twitter anymore so we could have gotten his thoughts on the destruction of his old casino.

That being said we do still have Hillary Clinton, who in many ways, isn’t shy of sharing her opinions on social media, especially when it comes to her former presidential election opponent.

Quote retweeting a video of the implosion, Clinton added a simple wave emoji in response proving once again that she is the undisputed champion of succinct Trump trolling.

In January, she mocked the former president after he was permanently suspended from Twitter by using a call back to a 2016 tweet of hers where she told him to ‘delete your account.’

In regards to his demolished hotel, Atlantic City Council President George Tibbit called it an “end of an era” for the boardwalk which is now going to go under redevelopment.
