Lindsey Graham says Trump's fights with Congress are a 'thought-out strategy' and 'there's nothing crazy about it'

Graham said of Trump's wild campaign rally Tuesday night that 'he won giving these kinds of speeches' and its was a chance for Trump 'to go back to his base and fire them up and put pressure on the Senate and the House to do things he wants'

Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested Thursday that Donald Trump's bare-knuckle feuding with Republicans in Congress is a conscious 'political strategy,' and 'there's nothing crazy about it.'

Institutional Washington has watched with a mixture of shock and horror as the president picks fights with leaders of his own party, but Graham – who has been on the receiving end of many Trump barbs – told radio host Hugh Hewitt that there's a method to the apparent madness of cannibalizing fellow Republicans in public. 

The South Carolina GOP senator pointed to his own conference's failure to muster enough votes to fund the border wall that won Trump a groundswell of support from Republican voters last year.
