Lindsey Graham Says Trump’s Response To Attack On Embassy Is A Clear Message Our Enemies Need To Hear

(Tea Party PAC) – Sen. Lindsey Graham didn’t used to be a big fan of President Trump, back during the 2016 presidential election when the two were at each other’s throats almost constantly lobbing insults and attacks at each other.

However, that’s all changed since Trump took office in 2017. In fact, Graham is one of the president’s most ardent supporters and is not at all shy about offering him his support, particularly when it comes to the realm of foreign policy.

Graham recently stated that Trump’s response to an Iran backed mob that attacked the U.S. Embassy in Iraq amounts to letting the rest of the world know that there will be no Benghazi situation on his watch.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

Protesters stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Baghdad on Tuesday, denouncing a series of deadly American airstrikes against an Iranian-backed Iraqi militia group in Iraq and Syria.

Hundreds of protesters marched through the heavily fortified “Green Zone” near the compound in anger over Sunday’s strikes against the Kata’ib Hezbollah militia, which had been blamed by the Pentagon for the death of a U.S. contractor in Kirkuk, Iraq, late last week.

Social media posts showed protesters breaking the embassy’s windows and setting fires outside its walls.

Hours later, President Trump warned Iran that the U.S. will hold it responsible for the attack.

“We strongly responded, and always will,” the president tweeted. “Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible.”

President Trump’s comments drew praise from Graham, who said his remarks put the “world on notice,” signaling that “there will be no Benghazis on his watch,” a reference to the 2012 terror attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.

In a subsequent tweet, Graham issued a stern warning to Iran: “Be careful what you wish for — a country that depends on the ability to refine oil for its existence needs to be cautious.

President Trump, unlike President Obama, will hold you accountable for threats against Americans and hit you where it hurts the most. Choose your battles wisely.”

The South Carolina Republican concluded his Twitter thread with a message to Iraq: “This is your moment to convince the American people the US-Iraq relationship is meaningful to you and worth protecting. Protect our American personnel. You will not regret it.”

The attack on the Embassy in Benghazi happened due to the weak foreign policy of former President Barack Obama, a man who tipped toed around our enemies and often apologized for America being the greatest nation in the world. The sharks smelled the blood in the water then, which is why radical Islamic terrorists wasted no time in attacking us while he was in office.

This will not be the case with Trump. Trump has a spine and has made it clear that any such attack on our people will result in heavy, heavy consequences. And unlike Obama, Trump will follow through on his word.
