Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-MS) believes Republicans need to move on from Donald Trump's fixation on the 2020 election, which was won by Joe Biden.

"You have to quit fighting the last election to get some things done before you get into the next election, for heaven's sake," Lott said in a new interview with Spectrum News.

"It's time to move on from the past," said Lott, who resigned his leadership position after praising Strom Thurmond's Dixiecrat bid for president.

But it may be difficult to get Trump to agree with his position.

"The insurrection took place on November 3, Election Day. January 6 was the Protest!" Trump argued in a statement released on Thursday.
