Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has never been the biggest fan of Donald Trump. He regularly trashed him on the campaign trail, did not vote for him, and has continued to be openly critical of Trump even since the orange would-be “president” took office. Now that the GOP is trying to push a deadly piece of legislation that they are trying to pass off as a “healthcare” bill through the Senate, Graham has some advice for Capitol Hill Republicans: Do not trust Trump.
The Republican-led House of Representatives pushed through the first bill, and Trump celebrated with them with a beer party in the Rose Garden at the White House. However, Trump turned on them, calling the bill “mean” (it’s the one truthful thing he’s said). Now, it’s the Senate’s turn. When MSNBC’s Garrett Haake asked Graham about what Trump had said about the bill, he essentially told his GOP colleagues not to trust Trump. Haake tweeted the exchange:

Now, Graham shows every intention of voting for this evil bill, and with the GOP controlling both chambers of Congress there’s no real way for the Democrats to block it unless they flip some Republican votes. However, he’s right about this one – if these people have any sense of self-preservation, they will not trust Trump.
