Graham: ‘The President for Some Reason Has a Hard Time Pushing Back Against Putin Directly’

‘I would try to cut off all of their customers and provide alternatives to their customers for oil and gas outside of Russia’

RUSH EXCERPT:

GRAHAM: "Let’s go back to the Reagan playbook. He stood up in front of the Berlin wall and said: Tear this wall down, on the other side is an evil empire. He wound up meeting with Gorbachev to try to reduce the number of nuclear weapons. I think the problem is that Russia is running wild. Whatever we’re doing is not working and the president for some reason has a hard time pushing back against Putin directly. So, again, economic isolation of Russia. They’re an oil and gas economy. They couldn’t survive very long without customers. So, if I were President Trump, Germany and Europe, I would — France, I would try to cut off all of their customers and provide alternatives to their customers for oil and gas outside of Russia. That’s what I do."
