Trump tells Lindsay Graham he’s ready to go nuclear on N. Korea!  

Trump tells Lindsay Graham he’s ready to go nuclear on N. Korea!

In a recent interview on NBC’s Today Show, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham shocked host Matt Lauer as well as a good portion of viewers when he discussed a conversation he had had with President Trump over these issues.

“There is a military option: to destroy North Korea’s nuclear program and North Korea itself,” Graham told Matt Lauer. “He’s not going to allow — President Trump (referring to what Trump had old him) — the ability of this madman to have a missile that could hit America. If there’s going to be a war to stop him, it will be over there. If thousands die, they’re going to die over there. They’re not going to die over here — and he’s told me that to my face,” Graham continued.

“I’m saying it’s inevitable unless North Korea changes because you’re making our president pick between regional stability and homeland security. He’s having to make a choice that no president has wanted to make. They’ve kicked the can down the road for 20 years; there’s nowhere else to kick it. There will be a war with North Korea over their missile program if they continue trying to hit America with an ICBM. He’s told me that, and I believe him.”

Trump’s personal lawyer Jay Sekulow repeatedly denied the President had any involvement in Don Jr.’s statement about June meeting with Russian lawyer which is untrue. 

Trump’s personal lawyer Jay Sekulow repeatedly denied the President had any involvement in Don Jr.’s statement about June meeting with Russian lawyer which is untrue. 

The Washington Post reported Monday night that the president himself was responsible for the drafting of Donald Trump Jr.’s misleading statement after the New York Times revealed that the younger Trump had arranged a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016. Sources say White House advisers had decided to be transparent about the meeting, but the president changed the game plan at the last minute to misleadingly suggest that the meeting was about adoption. The full truth soon came out that the meeting was arranged to discuss compromising information, supposedly from the Russian government, about Hillary Clinton.

Trump personally dictated Don Jr.’s misleading statement on meeting with Russian attorney.  

Trump personally dictated Don Jr.’s misleading statement on meeting with Russian attorney.

Flying home from Germany on July 8 aboard Air Force One, Trump personally dictated a statement in which Trump Jr. said he and the Russian lawyer had “primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children” when they met in June 2016, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deliberations. The statement, issued to the New York Times as it prepared a story, emphasized that the subject of the meeting was “not a campaign issue at the time.”

The claims were later shown to be misleading. More from the Washington Post here.
