While many are condemning the President Trump’s recent comments towards “the squad”, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham defended Trump and took a much different stance than some lawmakers.
As noted by The Federalist Papers, Graham appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Monday and referred to the Congresswomen as “communists.”
“Mr. President, you’re gonna win, just knock it down a notch,” he said advising The President to keep from using personal attacks.
“We all know AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own country,” he said.
“They’re calling guards along our border, border patrol agents concentration camp guards,” he said in the interview.
“They accuse people who support Israel of doing it for the ‘benjamins.’ They’re anti-semitic. They’re anti-America.
“Don’t get down — aim higher. We don’t need to know anything about them personally. Talk about their policies,” he said.
“What does it mean for America to have free Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants, no criminalization of coming into our Country.
“See how that works for controlling Immigration! They talk about Israel like they’re a bunch of thugs, not victims of the entire region.
“They wanted to impeach President Trump on DAY ONE. Make them the face of the future of the Democrat Party, you will destroy the Democrat Party. Their policies will destroy our Country!”
