Lindsey Graham Sends a Warning to President-Elect Donald Trump

Lindsey Graham

He’s baaack, the candidate for president who won less than 1% of the vote.

Lindsey Graham hates Donald Trump, of that there is little doubt. He has disseminated more vitriol against him than most Democrats. He’s called him a racist, nativist and accused him of potentially bringing about the next 9/11. Many would disagree and consider the RINO war hawk the one more likely to bring about a catastrophe.

The South Carolina Republican Senator is now baiting and warning President-elect Donald Trump should he try to eliminate one of President Obama’s immigration programs, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), frequently called the Dream Act. This was one of Obama’s executive orders and Trump has vowed to cancel them upon entering office.

“Here is a problem that we have: You’ve got about a million DREAM Act kids who came here as small children, lived here all their lives. Now they have legal status by executive order,” Graham told reporters Tuesday, according to BizPacReview.

The problem with the DREAM Act (DACA) is it did not go through Congress and became a fiat which is not what is supposed to happen in a Republic. Congress doesn’t want to stand up for what they believe in because it might go against their electorate who voted them in to represent them.

The DREAM Act allows people who arrived in America illegally as children work authorization and protection from deportation if they meet the program’s requirements.

They also receive government benefits and college grants.

Next up is the DAPA and the reason to keep that is to keep families together, Democrats and RINOs declare. That allows for federal benefits and chain migration.

Graham will stand in the way of any move that affects DREAMers. One problem with DREAMers is they weren’t vetted and some lied about their age and when at what age they arrived in the United States. It worked on the honor system.

“I will not vote for a bill that doesn’t, that quite frankly, treats a grandmother and drug dealer the same,” he said. “I will vote for border security.”

For now, Trump is only talking about deporting criminal illegal aliens and then he will work on border security.

Trump has, prior to his election, promised to end Sanctuary Cities policies.

“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers,” Trump told CBS. “After the border is secured and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that you’re talking about who are terrific people.”

That’s not the only thing on Graham’s agenda, he’s also asked Congress to investigate Russia’s possible meddling in the elections.

He is proposing that Congress hold a series of hearings on “Russia’s misadventures throughout the world” — including whether they were involved in “hacking into the DNC.”

“Were they involved in cyberattacks that had a political component to it in our elections?” Graham said.

If so, Graham said, “Putin should be punished.”

U.S. officials allege that Russia was involved in the hack on the Democratic National Committee that resulted in the release of sensitive emails ahead of the election.

Both Senators McCain and Graham have warned Trump against a friendly alliance with Putin or Assad.

When the Wikileaks scandal arose, he railed against the ‘crime’ of stealing documents and blamed Russia. He is friendly with the Clintons by his own admission.

In December of last year, Sen. Graham said he would work with Hillary Clinton on a range of issues if she became president in exchange for concessions on fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

“If she’s willing to be more robust in terms of destroying ISIL, I’d give her political cover,” Graham said. “If she wanted to be more muscular in her foreign policy, I would try to help her.”

He sounds less cooperative with Donald Trump, especially since Trump does plan to be more “muscular” in fighting ISIS.

  1. mr. graham and mr. trump have a problem.
    the senator and his neo-con buds (wolfowitz and kristol) jumped ship during the election process to be “with her” and her ‘best’ friend bibi, even though that meant supporting a candidate who advocates for open borders. that makes him a sitting duck in any upcoming floor debates on immigration. and our president-elect is in the process of committing an un-forced error in foreign policy. with the neos’ somewhat compromised he had the chance to let cooler heads prevail in the transition; instead he’s allowed tom cotton within scoring distance. any hope for a grudging peace among the world powers goes away with this guy. he’s a big fan of putting more ‘tactical’ nuclear missles along nato’s russian border and suggested that simply decimating iran’s military infrastructure with airstrikes was a better option than ‘the deal’. that would be an act of war, if not, then pearl harbor was just a strategic air maneuver courtesy of the emperor…b

  2. Another bit of advice, Lindsey; “Get over yourself. You are not God’s Gift, (except to your mother)”. They didn’t like you in 2015 and 2016, so I have a distinct feeling that your next run for Senate
    will be your final one.

  3. Lindsey Graham, he and his best bud, McCain, POSTER BOYS for the great betrayers, the so called RINOs, the Old Republican Guard who represent the very angst of votes in 2016.

    In just how many ways can Graham disgrace himself? This is the guy who ticked off, chapter and verse, the MANY reasons Sotomayor should not be a member of SCOTUS, than promptly voted, “yea.”

    This is the man who PRAYED to all that is holy, the Tea Party would implode BEFORE he had to run again. (lol, guess what, we’re still here)

    Legislators such as Lindsey Graham demonstrates for all to see, once they get into a position of power, how damned difficult it is to get rid of these pompous, narcissistic, self aggrandized, BETRAYERS of the American people. Yes, draining the swamp means term limits.

    Oh they all show up each election cycle, parading themselves out as “Conservatives,” saying, promising what EVER they think germane at the moment with the expressed and singular purpose of keeping themselves in office. Worse still, day after elections, like McConnell, show nothing BUT disdain for we, the poor, hopeless unwashed electorate.

    Lindsey Graham, sir, with all do respect, sit down, shut the hell up and start working on your retirement plans. Like Santa, We the People have been, “making a list, checking it twice” and we will not stop until fraudulent eunuchs such as yourself, are gone with nothing but bad memories remaining.

    Thankfully, the Trump candidacy made our work of deciding who has been, “naughty or nice,” easy-breezy. We need not do any in depth searching of your voting records, we needn’t review your many jackass comments nor the “ideals” you so selfishly and yes, DANGEROUSLY embrace. Here is all we need to know:

    Did you either support Trump or, at the very least, NOT work against him? Did you overtly or covertly support another disastrous Clinton administration, a couple who have proven themselves to be criminal enterprise tag team?

    If the answer to these questions is “yes,” for Graham, McCain, McConnell, or any other so called “Republican,” expect nothing but coal under your tree in the future. Coal, mined, harvested by walking, talking American people who want nothing more than to get back to work.

    And as to the illegals you are wet kissing, who are draining our monies to the tune of more than A TRILLION dollars a YEAR while our vets are DYING waiting for health care, while Americans in areas like West Virginia and inner cities are living like residents in third world nations, while many senior citizens are consuming dog and cat food because they can’t afford all those nice leafy greens Michelle is hawking ….

    YOU, Lindsey Graham and the many others of your sort, live your lives FAR removed from ordinary Americans. You are fully insulated and protected from destruction and pain of the laws you pass, the decisions you make and ideologies you safely embrace from afar and frankly, the American people have had enough of it…and you.
