Donald Trump Gives Out Lindsey Graham’s Cell Phone Number During Speech

Republican presidential candidate and real estate mogul Donald Trump gave out his rival candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) cell phone number on Tuesday during a speech in Bluffton, South Carolina.

Trump told the crowd that Graham had previously been “begging” for a mention on the Fox News show “Fox & Friends” when the real estate mogul still made regular weekly appearances.

“I wrote the number down! I don’t know if it’s the right number, but let’s try it,” Trump said, proceeding to read the 10-digit phone number.

Trump said it was an old number so it might not be work. He then repeated the number.

Politico reported that it called Graham at that number after Trump gave it out and the senator picked up.

“When it comes to the Donald, nothing surprises me anymore,” Graham told Politico on Tuesday. “It’s just too bad, really.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has doxxed someone who he believes wronged him. When Univision anchor Jorge Ramos sent a handwritten request for an interview, with his personal cell phone number, Trump published it on Instagram. It’s since been deleted.

When the number is called, a recorded message says the mailbox is full.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
