BREAKING: Lindsey Graham Issues THREAT To Trump

Lindsey Graham might have just crossed the line here…

Senator Lindsey Graham appeared on “The 700 Club” with Pat Robertson and challenged President Donald Trump to be better than former President Obama.

Patterson was one of the people who was firmly against the president’s decision to pull troops from Syria and stop protecting the Kurds.

Another was Sen. Graham, and when the two got together on Wednesday they continued to agree that troops should have stayed in the region.

Rush Transcript:

ROBERTSON: “Hey, listen, I understand Erdogan won’t meet with Mike Pence. Is that true?”

GRAHAM: “I don’t know, but Erdogan’s not your friend. Pat, you’ve done a great job. To your viewers, if you are not praying for the Kurds, we should all be ashamed of ourselves. It was the Kurds who worked with the American military to destroy ISIS.

If we abandon the Kurds, it will be dishonorable, it will be a disaster. Erdogan invaded Turkey — excuse me — Syria, he has created a vacuum for ISIS to come back.

The Kurds cannot fight Turkey and control the 10,000 ISIS prisoners. I am looking to President Trump to change this.

I will do anything I can to help him, but I will also become President Trump’s worst nightmare. I will not sit along the sidelines and watch a good ally, the Kurds, be slaughtered by Turkey and watch Iran move into Syria and become another nightmare for Israel. This is a defining moment for President Trump. He needs to up his game.”

ROBERTSON: “I have suggested that there be a Trump Declaration like the Balfour Declaration to say there’s a homeland for the Kurds, let’s give them a country. Is that too much to hope or am I exceeding my bounds here?”

GRAHAM: “Well, your admiration for the Kurds is well justified. That’s probably not the play right now. The play right now is to stop the slaughter.

If they move into Kobani, if Turkey moves into Kobani, you’re going to have an atrocity worse than ISIS. What does the average American care? ISIS is an enemy to mankind.

They would kill everybody listening to this broadcast because you’re an infidel. They’re not going to surrender.

If you think you can leave the Mideast as an American and we’ll be safe, that’s crazy. If you think Russia and Iran is going to take care of the U.S. interests, that’s insane.

So the reason I like the Kurds so much, they destroyed the Caliphate, but there’s 20,000 ISIS fighters. If they come back, they’re coming here and the only way to be safe here is to have some of our troops partnering with the Kurds, and finally, it would be so dishonorable for this country to abandon the Kurds and the Iranians, Pat, are ready to move into Syria to take the oil fields and that would undercut everything President Trump has done to contain the Iranians and a nightmare for Israel.”

ROBERTSON: “Lindsey, you have understood this situation and I think we both have and we both grieve when you think of, for example, that [inaudible] oil, that is one of the biggest oil deposits in the world and we’re going to give that up and say no, you can’t have it?”

GRAHAM: “So here’s what I told Mazloum last night, he’s the leader of the Kurdish military, I’m going to try to get him on your show.

You need to hear how desperate he is. He doesn’t want a partner with Assad. Partner with Assad is like partnering with Iran but he has no choice right now.

We have left him high and dry, and when I hear President Trump say let’s just get out of the Mideast, we’ll be fine, that’s Elizabeth Warren politics.

What did we learn from Iraq? If we leave against sound military advice, the radical Islamists come back. You may be tired of fighting radical Islam but they’re not tired of fighting you. The only way to be safe is to keep them over there so they don’t come here.

I’d rather have partners than do it alone. This is a defining moment for President Trump, we need to stand by the Kurds, we need to push Turkey out of Syria, have a safe zone keeping the Kurds in Turkey apart and we need to partner with the Kurds regarding the oil field.

I proposed last night a joint venture between the Syrian Democratic Forces and the United States controlling the oil for their benefit and ours, not Iran’s.”

ROBERTSON: “All right. Look, we’ve got 50 tactical nuclear weapons at Incirlik in Turkey. Erdogan is really in control of that now, isn’t he?

How do we get that huge airbase? Are we just going to abandon that or is he going to take it away from us?”

GRAHAM: “Over my dead body. I miss Ronald Reagan. Pat, you’re old enough to know what American strength looks like.

Do you think Erdogan would have done this if Reagan had been around? Do you think Assad would have done what he had done if Reagan had been around?

So this is Trump’s chance, my friend, to be like Ronald Reagan. We’ve got a pair of aces and they’ve got a pair of twos. Give me a break. The Turkish economy is feeble, I applause President Trump’s sanctions against Turkey, a 50 percent tariff on Turkish steel.

I’m going to introduce sanctions tomorrow with Democrats that are going to be sanctions from hell. They’re going to be like Iranian sanctions against Turkey, I’m going to break this thug’s back, we’re going to stand by the military, and President Trump, if you are listening to this interview, if you remove all of our forces from Syria, you are throwing the Kurds over, ISIS will come back on your watch, and Iran will take over, and you, my friend, will be in great jeopardy of losing an election we can’t afford you to lose. So don’t be like Obama, be like Reagan, stand up to Erdogan.”

ROBERTSON: “Lindsey, that’s some pretty hard words. You think the President’s going to listen to you? I hope he does.”

GRAHAM: “Well, I hope so, and here’s what will matter. People like you. You know, you’re a rock star, you’re a 90-year-old rock star. In my world in South Carolina, when you speak, people listen. And people are inherently fair.

They’re tired of the Mideast, I got it, but the Mideast is not tired of you. Can you imagine what would happen if we let Iran come into Syria?

That would be another front that Israel has to defend against. Iran wants the oil, they want to destroy Islam as we — they want to purify Islam in their image and they want to kill all the Jews and us, so this can be prevented with less than a thousand troops. T

he good news, President Trump has destroyed ISIS with 2,000 soldiers because 60,000 Kurds and Arabs did the fighting for us.

It would be a shame to abandon that model and to throw these people over who fought and died by over 10,000 Kurds died. We cannot do that, it will be a shame on our honor and as you said, the mandate from Heaven would be lost, and you are right.”

    Give the Kurds Northern Iraq, that where Sadam Hussien was gassing them so let them have that area but for us to stay in between them and Turkey and Syria is not our business, why are we fighting for them to have a piece of someones Country for the next 50 or 300 years. Do the Kurds ever intend to pay us back for the Billions of dollars of PROTECTION we have given them? Do they have anything to barter with ? Lindsey better watch it because he can’t be two faced and say he wants President Trump vilified and then turn on him and make him the villain for ending The Never Ending War. Lindsey may not get re elected if he burns his bridges.

      I totally agree! I am so tired of all these Rhinos. Graham is not helping the Republicans! I do not want to have one more American soldier to go to the middle east to be killed. I’m ashamed of all these Congressmen/women who want to be forever involved with someone else’s war. Congress begin working for the American people.

        Yes, we agree. It is up to the President to make these decisions, not Graham.
        Now that they have the cease-fire, Graham should be ashamed of himself and apologize to Trump if the “safe-zone” is successful.
        This will be a great solution for both sides in this region since it affects Turkey, Iraq, the Kurds, Syria, and the 10,000+ ISIS prisoners who tried to commit genocide against the Kurds.

      Lindsay needs to step up and help President Trump. He frequently speaks up without realizing the consequences. Also, he doesn’t seem to have the ability to apologize.

    OOPS, looks like Turkey just called a cease fire thanks to Trump sending Pence over there to talk. Our troops are out and nobody is fighting anymore, once again Trump wins.

    I think we should have pulled out solders out of the Syrian conflict ! These devil worshipers will always wage war at one another and has for decades ! They will murder one another for Satan there god of the underworld ! We don’t need another one of our soldiers killed in a loosing situation ! Graham is wrong and if he likes loosing our soldiers for nothing then let him go fight the fight ! Only country we should support is Israel who has never started a war ! The devil worshipping muslim have always tried to change what God gave the Israelites and that is the country of Israel ! Israel should have removed all Palestinians from there land God gave the Israelites ! That includes the East Bank And Gahaza Strip ! You can’t give land for piece these devils will never honor any treaty ! So why try !
