U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham believes that former President Donald Trump stands a “pretty good chance” of winning the 2024 U.S. presidential election, in what he said could be one of the “greatest political comebacks in American history.”

Speaking to CNBC Saturday, Graham — a South Carolina Republican and close ally of Trump — said he had advised the former president that he had “no chance” of winning the election in 2020, but added that 2024 was within his reach.

“I’m literally telling you what I tell him,” Graham told CNBC’s Steve Sedgwick at the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy.

“If you lose again, the history about who you are and what you did dramatically changes,” he said. “If you come back, it will be one of the greatest political comebacks in American history. And if you get four more years, you can do big stuff.”

The potential to do ‘big stuff’

Graham, who is currently facing calls to testify in a criminal probe related to Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, said Trump would now be able to position himself as the president of hope and action as the political and economic climate darkens under President Joe Biden.

Here’s what Trump might say, said Graham.

“Alright, you’ve lived through four years of this. You get a chance to start over,” he said.

“Remember me? I may not be your cup of tea, but when I was president, our border was secure, we had the lowest illegal crossings in 40 years. I did it,” he continued.

“When I was president, I stood up to China and they listened. When I was president, we had the strongest military since Ronald Regan. When I was president, I destroyed the caliphate. When I was president, we had conservative judges, not liberal judges. He has a story to tell,” said Graham.

Ultimately, however, Graham acknowledged that it may take more than policy pledges for Trump to regain favor among American voters.

“His problem is personal,” he said. “His policies have stood the test of time. But has he worn the American people out in terms of his personality? … Time will tell.”
