A hardline adviser speaks out against the president's lovey-dovey diplomacy with Kim Jong Un.
On Wednesdayjust after Donald Trump gushed about falling in love with North Koreas dictator and ahead of another trip by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang to prepare for a second summit between Trump and Kim Jong UnLindsey Graham delivered a stark message to the U.S. president: End the lovefest.
Im telling President Trump, Enough with I love you, said the Republican senator, a close ally of Trumps who had spoken to the president right before joining Jeffrey Goldberg on stage at The Atlantic Festival. This love crap needs to stop. Theres nothing to love about Kim Jong Un.
Trump is trying to pull [Kim into] his orbit out of the belief that charm works, Graham noted, but Im worried that North Korea is dividing us from South Korea. Im worried that were being played here. Noting that previous negotiations in recent decades failed to stop North Korea from developing a nuclear-weapons arsenal, he added that I dont know how this ends, but were into another round of engagement. And heres what I worry about: You get sucked into the love thingand nothing changes.(continued)

I think Linsey broke out of the chasty belt McShame made him wear.
Graham needs to keep his mouth shut.
Ah, he can play bad cop if he wants.
WATCH FROM 1:25 to 2:45 this was last night and You wont regret it
He can be useful to Trump: “Kim, you see the kind of political pressure I’m under, even from my own party!” “Give up 25% of your nuclear weapons this year and in January we’ll talk again.” “I don’t want to completely obliterate your country, but I may be forced into it.”
“Im worried that North Korea is dividing us from South Korea”
This sentence alone shows what horse manure this turd is talking.
The South Korean president has been instrumental in this process - there is no doubt about that whatsoever. The South Koreans have shown far more love and respect for Kim than Trump.
An idiot starting to like this disgusting war mongering evil bastard Graham for backing a Bushie supreme court nominee wants their head examining. He is a very dangerous and conceited man.
No, he is dead on accurate in his statements and is warning our President based on past experiences. Yes he is stating the obvious but it bears repeating over and over again.
Graham is blabber mouthing grandstanding and has zero good intentions.
You may personally thank him for waking a sleeping giant of an electorate. His statement on the committee may have single handedly turned the mid-terms in its head.
“His statement on the committee may have single handedly turned the mid-terms in its head.”
You made the statement that he has no good intentions but Im sorry that statement is wrong. Not only did that statement on the committee supporting Kavanaugh come from the heart, it may have very well saved his ass and in addition saved a bad midterm
Again, different topic.
Now that McCain is dead, Graham is a new man...and this new man wants to kick @ss.
As an aside, I sent an email to Graham's office earlier in the week congratulating him and thanking him for his rants last week directed toward the Dem Committee members. I encourage everyone to do the same.
I’m sorry, Linda runs again in 2020 (for his Senate seat). He’s still the same fool that ran for Pres in 2016. I’m so glad he backs Kav but outside of that, I’m not so sure.
I was thinking that Cindy sent him the Mason Jar they kept on the mantel... Now Lindsey needs Duluth Ballroom Jeans!
The South Korean president has been instrumental in this process ... because he is a radical socialist and belongs to the NoKo Juche cult; he worships the Kim family, in other words.
Linda’s been doing a decent job lately but I believe it started about 6 months ago as a way to try to build some “creds” for a run at the WH....the Kavanaugh deal was a no brainer for someone doing what he’s been doing...good to have his support over some issues but I guess i will not be able to stop referring to him as “Linda” as I had hoped.
Death or condos? That’s a tough choice.
I don't want to hear a weak an effeminate man like Lindsey talk tough about war like it's nothing. The policies he supported on trade and immigration are directly responsible for China's military expansion. China is directly involved in the situation we face with North Korea. The establishment help create problems, and then are the first to support war as the solution.
