“Not a lot of people know him,” Trump said jokingly when recognizing Graham in the audience. “He doesn’t do too much television. He happens to be a little bit further left than some of the people on this stage. But I always say when I’m in trouble on the left, I call up Lindsey Graham and he straightens it out

As the audience’s boos became louder, the Trump, a former president, motioned for the audience to quiet down and said, “No no, no, no.”

Taking the microphone, Graham said Trump is the “most qualified man to be president of the United States.”
