“DEAD ON ARRIVAL.”
That is what a smirking Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican, said to media in response to the pro-military Donald Trump proposed budget.
Graham is said to be concerned over President Trump’s desire to shrink the size and scope of the State Department, including millions given in foreign aid. The reason is simple. Graham exerts far more influence-peddling the more American tax dollars are thrown to other nations. He chairs the State Department and Foreign Operations subcommittee, meaning his primary purpose in threatening the president’s proposed budget is to protect his own status-quo standing:

Graham’s anti-Trump comments follows weeks of his continually pushing the Fake News Trump campaign/Russia story.
For President Trump, with Republicans like Graham, who needs enemies?
