Trump calls Lindsey Graham 'an embarrassment'


WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump is unloading on Lindsey Graham, calling the South Carolina senator "beyond rehabilitation" and "an embarrassment" to his state.

A former campaign rival of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Graham said in a CNN interview Friday that he can't support Trump's candidacy.

Trump responded with a scathing statement that mocked Graham's campaign loss.

He says: "I fully understand why Lindsey Graham cannot support me. If I got beaten as badly as I beat him, and all the other candidates he endorsed, I would not be able to give my support either. He was a poor representative and an embarrassment to the great people of South Carolina."

Trump says he intends to unify the party, but Graham "has shown himself to be beyond rehabilitation."

He adds, "And like the voters who rejected him, so will I!"
