Lindsey Graham says President Trump deserving of Nobel Peace Prize if he pulls off North Korea denuclearization
Lindsey Graham appearing on Fox and Friends says that if Trump achieves peace in the Koreas and the denuclearization of North Korea he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
Lindsey Graham said,; Okay, so here’s the deal. It wouldn’t have happened without Trump. It may not happen, but it is the biggest change since the end of the hostilities. The fact that the North Korean and South Korean presidents met, and they vowed to end the war. What happened? Donald Trump convinced North Korea and China he was serious about bringing about change. We’re not there yet but if this happens President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
All of the criticism of President Trump on fire and fury and maximum pressure – I’m glad he didn’t listen to all of those who failed before him. He has convinced North Korea that you’ve got two options: you can become a normal country or we will take you down if you keep trying to build missiles to hit the American homeland and I think they convinced North Korea and China that Trump is serious. Every president before him tried this. What is different about Trump?
They believe in North Korea. If he had to as a last resort, he would stop their nuclear program.
“We’re not there yet but if we get there it will be because of President Trump. A word of warning – the worst thing that Kim Jong Un could do is to play Trump. To go through all these motions and go back to the old way of doing business, Donald Trump will not tolerate being played. We’re either going to have peace or we’re going to have a war now because Kim Jong Un has made a mistake if he’s not serious, and that’s playing Trump.”
Lindsey Graham was once one of President Trump’s most outspoken critics. But as Graham says in the Fox interview what is happening now in Korea could not have happened with former President Bush and Obama. Their approach was as pacifist approach and the approach of Bill Clinton were either as total pacifist (Obama), gift giver in hope of peace (Clinton), sanctions and some threats such as calling them axis of evil (Bush). But the little North Korean midget had no real fear until Donald J. Trump.
