Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is making it clear that North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un will be in serious trouble if he tries to take advantage of President Donald Trump during their upcoming meeting.

“The worst possible thing you can do is meet with President Trump in person and try to play him,” Graham said in a statement Thursday. “If you do that, it will be the end of you — and your regime.”

Trump agreed to meet with Un Thursday after the North Korean dictator promised to stop nuclear tests and make efforts to move towards denuclearization. The move is a monumental shift in rhetoric from the president, who only six months ago threatened North Korea with “fire and fury.” The president promised total destruction if Kim did not bend to his demands.

Graham warned Kim that while the president is agreeing to meet, he is not afraid to use military force if he deems it necessary.
