Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said liberals would have a meltdown and commit suicide if President Donald Trump was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
“I want to be there. It may be the first time the Nobel Peace Prize was given and there was mass casualties because I think a lot of liberals would kill themselves if they did that,” Graham said on “Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo.”
“The bottom line is by any objective measure what President Trump has done is historic,” Graham added. “He made the decision early on Maria and this was his most important decision about North Korea. He took containment off the table. He said to me and others early on, ‘I’m not going to let them get a nuclear weapon that can hit America and contain the threat by threatening to blow North Korea off the map if they use it.'”
“No other president has been that blunt,” he continued. “And that’s why we are where we are. Because China and North Korea believe that if Trump had to, he would use military force and North Korea would lose.”
Graham first mentioned Trump for the Peace Prize on “Fox & Friends” Friday, following the news of a possible deal between North and South Korea. “We’re not there yet,” Graham said. “But, if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”
