Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham revealed that President Donald Trump instructed John Kelly to provide the McCain family with anything they need during their grieving.

Graham made the comments Monday night on “Hannity” on Fox News.


“John Kelly — I don’t know if John’s listening — he called right after John passed to the family. The president tells General Kelly ‘whatever they need they have,'” Graham began.

“We’re gonna look for it, we’re gonna talk about what does it mean for the country for John to have been in the Senate. What does it mean for us who have been around him, what can we do to build on his legacy? Where can I help the president?” he continued.

The feud between the president and the late senator was well-documented.

The White House faced backlash over its decision to raise federal flags on Monday but later decided to set them to half-staff. (RELATED: Trump Caves, Lowers Flags To Half-Staff)

It was also recently reported that President Trump has no regrets when it comes to labeling ailing Senator McCain as not being a “war hero” during the 2016 campaign.
