Senator Lindsey Graham explained why he felt Trump had told the Freshmen Dems to get out if they don’t like it here.
He feels that it is a matter of the Freshmen Dems having gone too far with their anti-American tirades. So this was just Trump telling them to back off and as you can see they didn’t understand that.
“Here’s what I think. I think the president is playing on the 1968 ‘Love it or Leave it,’” Graham said, referring to a popular by Vietnam War Era Slogan “I’ve said before, that if you’re a Somali refugee wearing a MAGA hat, he doesn’t want to send you back — you’ll probably have dinner at the White House. What does that tell me? It is about the criticism and the critic, that the president believes that what they’re doing is over the top.”
“We’re not running concentration camps, so when you start accusing people of running concentration camps who work for the United States government, you’re going to be met with some pretty fiery responses,” Graham said referring to AOC’s ridiculous claim about the Detention Centers at the border.
“I don’t like it. I’m not going around telling anybody to leave the country who is an American citizen,” Graham said. “To a naturalized citizen — this is your home as much as it is mine.”

On Monday Graham expressed how he really felt about the progressive four.
“We all know that AOC (Ocasio-Cortez) and this crowd are a bunch of communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own country, they’re calling the guards along our border — the Border Patrol agents — concentration camp guards,” started in Graham, appearing on “Fox & Friends.”
“They accuse people who support Israel as doing it for the ‘Benjamins,’” he continued, a reference to past remarks from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). “They are anti-Semitic, they are anti-American, we don’t need to know anything about them personally, talk about their policies.”
Graham can’t be as bold as the president. He has to make deals with the Dems and knows it would hinder his ability to work in the Senate. Trump is not wrong, the House has become chaotic. Dems attacking Dems or even breaking the rules of the House. But hopefully we can fix that in 2020 and get rid of that Dem majority.
