Sen. Lindsey Graham boldly predicted that President Donald Trump would take the country to war with North Korea if Kim Jong-un makes additional provocations.
Graham told The Atlantic in an interview that appeared on the magazine’s website Thursday that another nuclear test would be the final straw.
‘I would say there’s a three in 10 chance we use the military option,’ Graham said. Upping the odds in the case of a seventh test, he replied, ‘I would say 70 percent.’
A foe-turned-friend of the president’s, Graham has been spending more and more time with Trump. The Republican senator was in Palm Beach golfing with Trump last weekend. He’s also been to see Trump at the White House this month.
As such, he said he has insight into Trump’s mindset on North Korea.
‘It comes up all the time,’ he told The Atlantic.
