White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney took a swipe at President Donald Trump’s congressional ally Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who’s been urging a tough stance on a border wall — saying he’s “not as good a politician” as Trump.

In remarks aired Sunday on NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” Mulvaney was asked about the influence of Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, conservative pundit Ann Coulter and Graham — who’ve all called for a Trump to dig in on his campaign promise to build a wall to stem illegal immigration.

"I would make the argument that the president has probably more sway over Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter than vice versa,” Mulvaney said.

“I like Lindsey Graham and he's a good friend of mine,” he added. “We're from South Carolina. He’s not as good a politician as Donald Trump or else he'd be president. They both ran and one of them won and one of them lost."
