Graham Apologizes to King of Jordan for Trump’s Muslim Comments

We all know Donald Trump is one of Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) least favorite people. The senator has called the businessman a “jackass” on more than one occasion. At tonight’s GOP presidential debate in Las Vegas, Graham had another chance to let Americans know what he thinks about him.

Early in the CNN/Salem Radio debate, Graham was asked to respond to Trump’s controversial proposal to ban all Muslims from the United States for a period of time until we figure out how to fill our national security holes. The senator lamented Trump’s comments by wondering what our friend King Abdullah II of Jordan and the President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt, both of whom are Muslim, would think about that proposal. He felt the need to apologize to those world leaders:

“I am sorry,” Graham said. “He does not represent us.”

“Muslims have died by the thousands” fighting ISIL, Graham added, suggesting they deserve better.

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) sparred a bit with Graham on this point, arguing:

“We have to stop worrying about offending some people and defending all Americans.”

Later, Santorum explained that while Islam is a religion, it is also a dangerous political structure that promotes Shariah law. That, he said, is not protected under our Constitution.

Trump will inevitably be asked about his controversial comment at tonight’s main debate at 8 p.m.
