Lindsey Graham: Senate Colleagues Shouldn’t ‘Count on the President to Have Your Back’

When Senator Lindsey Graham was asked about the Senate health care bill and President Trump referring to it recently as “mean,” he laughed and made a comment about how his colleagues should be careful about relying on the President.

“Here’s what I would tell any senator. If you count on the president to have your back, you need to watch it.”

Trump confirmed this weekend that he did say it was “mean,” reiterating that he wants to see “a bill with heart.”

Graham has been more supportive of Trump than he used to be, but he recently has been publicly critical of the President for not being more careful with the things he says.
