Lindsey Graham: Tell Donald Trump ‘To Go to Hell’ and Make America Great Again

‘You know how to make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell’

GRAHAM: “This is not a policy debate, Ted. We need a commander-in-chief that would honor the 3500 American Muslims in uniform. When I was in Iraq, excuse me in Afghanistan in the second election I was escorted by a young sergeant in the army who grew up in Kabul, Afghanistan, became an American citizen. He took me to his old high school, where they were voting, he was crying like a baby. All of us were crying like a baby. Because he was so proud of his new country and his old country. So what Ted Cruz did is ignore the moral imperative here to speak out. This is not — he’s trying to get all the Trump people when Trump falls. He’s trying to get all the Carson people when they fall. What I’m trying to do is be a president worthy of a great nation and a great party. So, this doesn’t cut it for me. This is not a policy debate, Ted. This is about you and us and our character as a party. Up your game. Condemn it, because it needs to be condemned.”
CAMEROTA: “You feel so strongly about this, in your speaking [indecipherable]. Is there anything that you as the Republican candidate can do with your rivals to, I don’t know, ban together? What’s your suggestion for what you plan to do about Donald Trump?”
GRAHAM: “To speak out not in a policy way but condemn this rhetoric as being un-American, not who we are as a party. And I want you to understand something. I go to the Mid-East a lot, 36 times. Nobody is talking about this. He is helping the enemy of this nation. He is empowering radical Islam. And if he knew anything about the world at all, you would know that most Muslims reject this ideology and they have died in — by the thousands trying to contact this radical ideology. You are undercutting their efforts, you’re slanting their sacrifice. You’re marginalizing what they are trying to do to make the world a better place. Do you know how you win this war? You side with people in the faith who reject this ideology, which is 99 percent. And you know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go hell.”
