“We came to find common ground, that common ground is that he likes him, and I’ve come to like him,” Graham said while speaking at the Faith & Freedom Coalition Conference on Friday.
He added, “That will get you through 18 holes of golf, the front nine is about why he likes him, the back nine is why I liked him.”

The senator also mentioned the 2022 elections and what that means for the “party of Trump.”
“If we win in 2022, it means the party of Trump is not dead and buried it is still alive,” Graham said.
He continued, “If we can pull this off, take back the House and the Senate then 2024 becomes ours to lose. Imagine four more years of Donald Trump policies.”

Graham also commented on Trump’s relationship with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), “I don’t see Mitch and Trump going on vacation, but that’s OK. We’ve just gotta, we’ve just gotta get to the same place. I don’t care if we take different cars, do y’all?”
Trump previously referred to McConnell as a “dour, sullen and unsmiling political hack.”
During an appearance on Fox News last month, Graham weighed in on a potential Trump 2024 run.
“It should be an America First agenda and if President Trump runs, he’s going to have some damage to repair, but I think he’s in great shape to win the primary and could get reelected,” Graham said.
He added, “And my question is, if he’s the nominee would you support him? I would like to hear a lot of people answer that question.”
Graham previously argued the Republican Party will not be able to move forward without Trump, as IJR previously reported.
“Can we move forward without President Trump? The answer is no,” Graham said.
