Sen. Graham: Trump Should Ramp Up Threats on Iran

(Fox News "Special Report")

By    |   Wednesday, 19 June 2019 10:34 PM

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Wednesday said President Donald Trump should consider destroying Iran's oil refineries and sink its Navy if attacks on tankers in the Persian Gulf continue.

"[Trump] should put the [Iranian] oil refineries on the target list and look at sinking the Iranian Navy if they attack shipping again," Graham told Fox News host Bret Baier during an appearance on "Special Report."

"If I were the president, I would tell the Iranians: if there's an attack on a ship or a pipeline or anything like that, we're going to blow up your oil refinery because they're trying to drive up costs by creating chaos."

Graham also maintained neither Trump nor Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon.

"I think the president is going to stop them from going to get a nuclear weapon," Graham said. "I think he's going to stop them from disrupting the flow of oil and blowing up the pipelines of other nations. He doesn't want a conflict, but he's about to run out of options here."

Trump's administration has blamed Iran for the attacks on Norwegian and Japanese oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
