Lindsey Graham: Donald Trump's Illegal Immigrant Comments 'Offensive'

Longtime politician and GOP presidential contender, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that Donald Trump is "a wrecking ball" that's threatening to dismantle the Republican Party. He also said on CNN's "State of the Union," "I'm very worried where we're headed as a party. I don't think this is the way to get the Latino vote. If we don't reject this way of thinking — clearly, without any ambiguity — we'll have lost our way, [and] we'll have lost the moral authority, in my view, to govern this great nation."

Trump garnered national headlines when he talked about illegal immigrants and citing this month's killing of a woman in San Francisco, allegedly by an illegal immigrant felon. Republican leaders, who are vying for Latino voters, tried to separate themselves from Trump. Even Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, has privately urged Trump to tone down the rhetoric.

Graham said Trump's comments "are not only offensive at every level, [but] you're telling the Hispanic community who are friends, neighbors and relatives of the illegal immigrant population exactly what we think of you." He also warned Republicans "For us to win a national election we have to do better with Hispanics. And for us to have the moral authority as a party to govern a great nation we have to reject this demagoguery. If we don't we will lose, and we will deserve to lose."
