Then-President Donald Trump gestures as Sen. Lindsey Graham speaks about an upcoming afternoon vote in the Senate during an event in the White House on November 6, 2019.

Sen. Lindsey Graham called Trump a liar but added that he’s a “lot of fun to hang out with.”
Graham’s remarks appear in an upcoming book about Trump written by two journalists. 
Other Trump allies, like White House strategist Steve Bannon, have also characterized Trump as a liar.
