Sen. Lindsey Graham plans to meet with former President
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.
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.
