Graham On Trump: 'I Am All In'

Sen. Lindsey Graham has become a big fan of President Trump since the administration began threatening Iran and North Korea.

The South Carolina lawmaker, one of 17 candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, often slammed Trump on the campaign trail. Graham questioned his rival’s experience and accused him of not being a true conservative. It was not until Trump’s recent decision to bomb a Syrian airfield in retaliation for a chemical-weapons attack that the senator began to adopt a more positive view of the president, according to Politico.

The news site reported that Graham also has praised Trump for putting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “on notice” to stop testing ballistic missiles. Kim has vowed to develop a nuclear weapon capable of reaching the continental United States by 2020. In addition, Graham announced his support for the administration’s approach to Iran.

“I am like the happiest dude in America right now,” the senator declared Wednesday in a “Fox and Friends” interview. “We have got a president and a national-security team that I’ve been dreaming of for eight years. … To me, that has been music to my ears. Iran is running through the Mideast. They are toppling every government they can get their hands on.”

Graham continued: “North Korea, if I were Kim Jong Un, whatever his name is, I would listen to Mike Pence. The fact that the vice president of the United States went to the DMZ, looked across the way and said, ‘We’re watching you’; Donald Trump is not going to let this nut job in North Korea get a missile to hit America. And if I were North Korea and China, I would start thinking anew about the president of the United States. … I am all in. Keep it up, Donald. I’m sure you’re watching.”

Graham, one of the leading military “hawks” in Congress, often advocates increased U.S. intervention around the world. He represents a faction of the Republican Party that has resisted much of Trump’s agenda.
