Lindsey Graham said Trump could ‘kill 50 people on our side’ and GOP wouldn’t care, book says
“Trump could kill 50 on our side and it wouldn’t matter,” Graham flatly told reporters Susan Glasser and Peter Baker, whom they recount in “The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021 “, an advance copy of which was obtained by The Independent.
Graham reportedly offered the updated assessment in 2019 “less than 48 hours” after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced an impeachment inquiry into Trump’s loud phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky , according to the narrative of the new book . On the call, Trump appeared to be withholding a US arms shipment that had been approved by Congress unless Ukraine’s new leader agreed to launch a baseless investigation into Trump’s planned 2020 presidential rival Joe. Biden, and his son Hunter Biden.
Still, Graham wasn’t completely naïve about Trump. He also called the former president a “bastard liar” over the Ukraine call, according to the report on the book, which is due out next week.
But almost in the same breath, Graham noted that Trump was “a lot of fun to hang out with,” write Glasser and Baker, according to the Independent article.
