“I’m not into this idea the only way you can help honor John McCain is to trash out Trump,” he said in an interview with CNN that aired Wednesday.

He added that his agenda is to both honor McCain and help Trump.

“My agenda is twofold, to honor my friend for the rest of my life in every way I can and help this president be successful,” he said.

“President Trump has been good to me,” Graham added. “He’s allowed me in his world, he’s made decisions I think based on some input I’ve given him.”
