Senator Orrin Hatch Says Trump Could Be Abraham Lincoln Great

EXCLUSIVE

Senator Orrin Hatch is sticking to the story he told earlier this week -- that Donald Trump could be the greatest Prez ever -- and now he's even doubling down on that.

We got the Utah senator on Capitol Hill Thursday, the day after Trump and nearly all congressional Republicans did a victory lap for the new tax bill. 

During the celebration, Hatch said Trump could possibly be at the helm of the greatest presidency in American history. So, we followed up ... and this time, he says theres some BIG names that 45 can match.

As for HOW he gets that done? Let's just say, OH was short on details.
