Sen. Lindsey Graham Tuesday warned that President Trump is seriously mulling an attack on North Korea and that he will not allow Kin Jong Un to be able to hit the United States with a nuclear missile.
The Chinese are miscalculating Trump, and so are the North Koreans,” Graham said.
“They’re wrong,” Graham said when told there was “no good military option” with respect to military action against North Korea. “There is a military option to destroy North Korea’s program and North Korea itself. He’s not going to allow, President Trump, the ability of this madman to have a missile hit America. If there’s going to be a war to stop him, it will be over there. If thousands die, they’re going to die over there, they’re not going to die here and he’s told me that to my face.
“And that may be provocative, but not really. When you’re president of the United States, where does your allegiance lie? To the people of the United States. This man, Kim Jong Un, is threatening America with a nuclear tip missile. President Trump doesn’t want a war, the Chinese can stop this, but to China, South Korea, and Japan, Donald Trump is not going to allow this missile.”
Finally we have a president who is serious about ending this threat. War is going to be terrible, though perhaps, hopefully, given our capabilities, not as terrible as everyone thinks. But the bottom line is we cannot allow Kim Jong Un to presdent an existential treat to the United States.
Graham’s comments on North Korea pick up at about the 5:00 mark.
