Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that becoming a close ally of President Trump has “absolutely” been worth it, pointing to the access to Trump it brought him.
“I feel like I’ve had more access to this president than every president combined. We don’t always agree,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
