Senator Lindsey Graham(R) in an interview on Tuesday said the United States military should take out North Korea and not just concentrate on its nuclear program. The interview, hosted by The Today Show, saw the senator say “President Donald Trump is not going to allow the ability of this madman to have a missile to hit America. If there is going to be a war to stop him, it will be over there. If thousands die, they are going to die there, they’re not going to die here.”
He added that Trump did not want a war but he would not allow North Korea to obtain a reliable nuclear-tipped ICBM. “The Chinese can stop this,” he said.
Graham’s statement came just days after North Korea tested another intercontinental ballistic missile which experts believe could have the range to hit most of the United States, with the exception of Florida. Some problems still remain with its reentry vehicle, however, which will require at least a few more tests.
