COLUMBIA, South Carolina — A day after Donald Trump revealed Lindsey Graham’s private cell phone number during a rally in South Carolina, Graham has responded with a video that shows you multiple ways to destroy your cell phone. Trump and Graham have engaged in an ongoing feud in the past few days as they battle for the Republican presidential nomination. In Trump’s speech Tuesday, he called Graham an “idiot,” after Graham called him a “jackass” in an interview.
Trump gave out Graham’s private cell phone number and urged attendees to call it.
“Give it a shot,” Trump said, urging people to call the state’s senior senator.
The number now goes directly to voicemail and the recorded message said it was the phone number for Graham. The mailbox was full.
Graham’s campaign manager released a statement on Tuesday:
“Donald Trump continues to show hourly that he is ill-prepared to be commander in chief,” Christian Ferry said, adding later, that “Because of Trump’s bombastic and ridiculous campaign, we aren’t talking about Obama’s horrible deal with Iran or Hillary Clinton’s plans to continue Obama’s failed national security agenda.”
