Sen. Lindsey Graham has urged fellow Republicans at a private fundraising event in Florida to support Donald Trump, CNN reports.

Graham has been one of Trump's harshest critics in the party, calling him unfit for office and a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot. However, he has recently admitted to warming up to the presumptive Republican nominee, saying he has been impressed with him in conversations on the phone.

CNN quoted prominent Florida Republican fundraiser Teresa Dailey, who attended the Graham event, as saying the senator told the Republican crowd that they should get behind Trump.

Graham's communication director Kevin Bishop acknowledged that Graham attended the event but would not confirm the remarks, instead tweeting to reporters:
