Lindsey Graham: If I’m President, ‘This Crap Stops’

President Obama is “weak” on foreign policy, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, who promised last week: “Make me commander in chief and this crap stops.”

The South Carolina lawmaker was among the four lowest-polling contenders for the Republican presidential nomination who took part in the “undercard” debate that preceded the main event on CNBC.

“Here’s the problem. We’re being walked all over because the commander in chief is weak in the eyes of our enemies,” Graham said. “Do you think Putin would be in the Ukraine today if Ronald Reagan were president? Why are the Chinese stealing our intellectual property; hacking into our system? Why are they building islands over resource-rich waters? Because they can get away with it.”

Another candidate at the so-called “kids’ table” debate, George Pataki, also cited cybersecurity threats. The former New York governor vowed to “retaliate” against any foreign entity that “is hacking into American companies and stealing trade secrets, as we know they do every day.”

Pataki suggested that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state should “disqualify” her from being president.

The undercard contenders continue to trail the front-running candidates by a wide margin. According to the latest national poll by The New York Times and CBS, Ben Carson leads the pack with 26 percent support. Donald Trump has slipped to second place, at 22 percent.
