Sen. Graham 'Happiest Dude In America' Concerning President's New Stance On Foreign Policy

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who had been one of Donald Trump’s most outspoken Republican critics, now says he is “all in” with the president’s agenda.

Politico reported that the South Carolina lawmaker cited Trump’s focus on foreign affairs. “I am like the happiest dude in America right now,” Graham told Fox News. “We have got a president and a national-security team that I’ve been dreaming of for eight years.” The senator explained that he is particularly pleased with the administration’s approach to North Korea, which is threatening to develop ballistic missiles capable of reaching the continental United States. Trump has warned North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un to stop testing nuclear weapons.

Graham also expressed support for the president’s tough talk on Iran. Shortly after taking office, Trump declared that he was putting the Middle Eastern nation “on notice” to comply with the nuclear agreement that the Obama administration negotiated. White House officials informed congressional leaders on Tuesday that because Iran was abiding by the terms of the deal, the United States would relax some economic sanctions against the country.

“To me, that has been music to my ears,” Graham said. “Iran is running through the Mideast. They are toppling every government they can get their hands on. North Korea, if I were Kim Jong Un, whatever his name is, I would listen to Mike Pence. The fact that the vice president of the United States went to the DMZ, looked across the way and said, ‘We’re watching you’; Donald Trump is not going to let this nut job in North Korea get a missile to hit America. And if I were North Korea and China, I would start thinking anew about the president of the United States. I am all in. Keep it up, Donald. I’m sure you’re watching.”

Graham competed with Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. The candidates clashed at several debates and continued to wage a war of words even after Trump came into power. According to Politico, the senator began to change his opinion of the president when the United States bombed Syria in response to a chemical-weapons attack allegedly ordered by Syrian ruler Bashar Assad.
