Lindsey Graham to Trump: 'Aim Higher'

Monday, 15 July 2019 09:21 AM

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is advising President Donald Trump to "aim higher" following Trump's incendiary weekend tweets about four Democratic congresswomen.

Trump had tweeted that they should go back to the "broken and crime infested" countries they came from, even though all of the women are American citizens and three were born in the U.S.

Graham, a close ally of Trump who golfed with the president over the weekend, offered the advice in an interview with "Fox & Friends" Monday morning.

He said the lawmakers, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, "are American citizens" who were "duly elected," and says Trump should "take on their policies" instead of launching personal attacks.

Still, Graham called the members "anti-Semitic" and "anti-American," saying that "AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel. They hate our own country."
