Sen. Lindsey Graham started off his Senate re-election campaign in Easley, South Carolina at the Brushy Creek Baptist Church. Graham was joined by Vice President Mike Pence. Graham said every day under President Donald Trump’s administration is “Christmas.”
“Me and the president didn’t get started on the best foot. I was one of the 16 people he beat and he reminds me of that every day. Right after he got elected, he said, ‘Come over, I want to talk to you.’ I said, ‘I’ll be there in a minute.’ He said, ‘I don’t have your phone number.’ I said, ‘There’s a reason for that,'” Graham said.
“I found common ground with President Trump: I like him and he likes him. It seems to be working out for the both of us,” Graham added.
“We love President Trump for being President Trump, right? Every day with President Trump is Christmas. There’s something under the tree, you just don’t know what it is. I could have told Mueller, you didn’t need to spend $25 million to believe that Trump didn’t collude because he doesn’t collide with anybody,” Graham continued.
This comes after the The Department of Justice released a four-page letter to Capitol Hill lawmakers on Sunday. Attorney General William Barr said special counsel Robert Mueller found no collusion between the Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia in 2016.
