Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Saturday that he hopes former President Trump runs again in 2024, The Detroit News reported.

During the second day of the Michigan Republican Party's leadership conference, Graham said he hopes Trump will run again, which reportedly drew in applause.

"I don't think Trump is listening. He might be," Graham said, according to the news outlet. "I hope President Trump runs again."

The comments come days after Trump publicly criticized Graham and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), following a report in the new acclaimed book "Peril," by journalists Bod Woodward and Robert Costa, that the senators vetted Trump's claims about the 2020 presidential election. They were allegedly "unpersuaded" by what was presented to them.

In a statement through his Save America PAC, Trump said Graham and Lee "should be ashamed of themselves for not putting up the fight necessary to win."

Graham did not respond to Trump's comments about him during his 25-minute speech, according to the Detroit News. However, Graham, who remained an ally to the former president throughout his time in office, said that he and Trump "found common ground."

"People ask me, 'What happened with you and Trump?'" Graham reportedly told the crowd. "I say we found common ground. I've come to like him and he likes him."
