Columbia, SC (WLTX) - U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is congratulating Donald Trump-- a man he repeatedly has clashed with--on his presidential victory.


Graham issued a statement saying that Trump, "defied the odds and overcame many obstacles to achieve a stunning victory."

Graham also said there are more challenges ahead and said he will help President Trump to the extent that he can.

"I believe there is consensus to be had on keeping trade free but fairer, rebuilding our military, restoring our standing in the world, reforming our tax code, repealing and replacing Obamacare with an alternative that empowers patients while reining in costs, and confirming conservative justices to the Supreme Court."

"It is now time for all Americans to pull together and realize the challenges we face can only be overcome by working together. The strength of our nation is in the goodness of its people. As long as that is the case--and I believe that is the case--then America's best days still lie ahead."
