Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says the media’s effort to “destroy Trump” is “pissing a lot of people off.”

Graham made the comments while appearing on Fox & Friends Tuesday, after being asked about the New York Times publishing a timeline blaming President Trump for not taking quick action to fight the Coronavirus sooner.

"Well number one Mr. President, the American people understand what you've done for them and this effort to destroy Trump, no matter the cost to the country, is getting a bit old and is pissing and a lot of people off,"  Graham said.

"The President made four really important decisions to save American lives. Number one, he shut down travel to China and Europe and a way to keep hundreds of thousands of people from being affected.

He declared a national emergency to give the country the tools to fight back. That was a major decision. 

He rejected the herd mentality of letting it run rampant through the country- people build up immunity. A couple of million people would have died if that had been the case. And finally, I think the most important thing the president has done is unleash the private sector in testing and trying to develop drugs by giving FDA waivers for therapies and vaccines to speed up the process. 

So I think the president has made really hard calls well. And we're going to be well below the one hundred thousand minimum (deaths) expected and it's due to his leadership and the American people working together."
