Lindsey Graham lectures Trump on his so-called friendship with hate groups and it’s beyond insulting

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a frequent foe of President Donald Trump, said the president needs to do more to distance himself from white supremacist groups.

Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” with host Chris Wallace, another detractor of the president, he said the president “missed an opportunity to be very explicit” in his contempt for neo Nazis.

“These groups seem to believe they have a friend in Donald Trump in the White House. I don’t know why they believe that, but they don’t see me as a friend in the Senate and I would urge the president to dissuade these groups that he’s their friend,” Graham said.

“If I were president of the United States and these people showed sympathy toward me and my agenda, it would bother me, and I would urge the president to dissuade them of the fact that he sympathetic to their cause,” he said. “Their cause is hate, it is un-American, they are domestic terrorists and we need more from our president.”

Wallace asked Graham why he thought the president didn’t do more, in his statement on Saturday, to tell white supremacists that he is not their friend.

“I like President Trump,” Graham said. “It’s up to him to correct the record here, not me.”

Graham was the latest Republican to pile on the president. He was preceded by a collection of notable Republicans who took their shots on Saturday.

The White House issued a another statement on Sunday disavowing and condemning white supremacist groups.
