Graham: Trump’s Address On “Evil Empire” Iran On Par With Reagan’s “Tear Down This Wall” Speech

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, praised President Trump’s speech Wednesday that addressed Iran’s attack on a U.S. airbase in Iraq. Graham said Trump’s speech will be “talked about long after his second term.”

“I always believed they were trying to kill Americans,” Graham said of the attack. “If you lob missiles inside an airbase, what’s the intended consequence? To kill people inside the airbase. We got lucky. We moved our people out. We had four hour’s notice. What I said last night, I think it was more good fortune than it was lack of intent. But here’s the good news, the president made a very bold decision today to allows things to calm down. This speech will be talked about long after his second term.”

“This is resetting the relationship between the world in Iran just not the United States,” Graham told FNC host Sean Hannity. “The president said there’s an evil empire in Iran that’s bent destroying the world and killing the people in Israel and coming after us and I will no longer tolerate it. So this is on par with Reagan’s ‘tear down this wall’ speech.”
