Graham Calls Donald Trump’s Willingness to Speak with Kim Jong Un a ‘Big Mistake’

Friday on CNN’s “At This Hour,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s willingness to talk to North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-Un “would be a mistake for the president of the United States to meet directly with this butcher.”

Partial transcript as follows:

BOLDUAN: “What was your gut reaction when you heard that Donald Trump said he would have no problem talking to Kim Jong-Un.”

GRAHAM: “Big mistake because every other dictator in the world is going to look at you differently. The last thing you want to do is empower this guy in North Korea. Donald is right to say that China is the key to North Korea but I think it would be a mistake for the president of the United States to meet directly with this butcher. I would focus on China, and to Mr. Trump, you better come up with a strategy in Syria.”
