Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had a message for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un Wednesday during an interview with Foxs Martha McCallum.
Heres whats crazy, Graham said, to keep building ICBMs that can deliver a nuclear weapon to America and believe that Donald Trump wont do anything about it, that probably worked with Obama but Im here to tell North Korea that our president has drawn a red line.
If you keep threatening the American homeland with a nuclear weapon were going to destroy your regime, he warned. It's that simple.
So if you want to survive, Kim Jong Un, you need to sit down with the president and do a deal giving up your nukes, Graham concluded. If you keep doing what you're doing, you are miscalculating Donald Trump. He's not Obama. You do this at your own peril."
North Korea threatened Wednesday to pull out of the planned summit with President Trump if the U.S. demands that it unilaterally abandons its nuclear program in exchange for economic aid.
President Trump said that the U.S. had not heard any official word from North Korea regarding the summit and "we'll see what happens."
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, told reporters that North Korea's statement was "something that we fully expected."
"If they want to meet we'll be ready, and if they don't, that's OK too," she said.
Trying to start a war, Lindsey?
That’s one of your favorite things to do, isn’t it?
Sorry, Linda, Donald is happily married.
Linda sure likes to stick her nose in things.
I wish the major league pussy Graham would just shut his dainty little mouth up.
I don’t remember where I read it, but there was a meeting between two warring factions. The chief of one said, “What’s in it for me?” The other chief said, “We will let you live.”
My kind of negotiating tactics when dealing with Kim’s type.
I sure wish someone would say that to his face.
He mis-spelled “Gay” on his hat
Sounds to me as if Graham is setting the stage to take credit once the meeting takes place as scheduled.
Is Lindsey up for reelection ?
We have 100 senators and yet LG gets 80% of the press. What’s the deal with that?
Our in-the-closet guy talks tough.
South Carolina, could you tell us what the story is down there? Is this the best you can send to Washington?
McConnell does to South Carolina what he did to Alabama and Mississippi...and almost did in West Virginia.
That’s some insider ball I don’t know about.
Glad to. We have lots of good, strong Conservatives in SC that would be light years better than linda in the Senate.
Having open primaries is our problem. During the primaries, several people will run opposing linda. But on primary voting day the RATS cross over in droves and vote for linda. linda wins the primary and, since SC is a strong red state, goes on the win the election.
The SC legislature is beginning to grow some balls and are making noise about going to closed primarires.
Can't happen soon enough for me and lots of other Republican voters. But until the law is changed, linda has a job for life and she knows it.
One must never corner an adversary, but always leave an escape route. The goal is to win, not humiliate. I am so looking forward to the day that DJT takes revenge on Graham, however.
