WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham appeared on Washington Watch with Tony Perkins, a national radio show which airs on more than 240 stations across the country. On the show, Sen. Graham weighed in on the summit held in Singapore earlier this week between President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.
Sen. Graham commented, “The biggest threat from North Korea having a bunch of nuclear weapons and missiles is that they will sell it to somebody who will use it. The only reason three thousand Americans died on 9/11, and not three million of us, is the terrorists couldn’t find a way to kill three million of us – and they would if they could. So, when I look throughout the world… at opportunities for terrorists to get nuclear material, weapons, or technology to hurt America, North Korea is on top of the list.” Sen. Graham continued, “I applaud the President for reaching out to North Korea in a tough but win-win fashion. And time will tell as to whether or not this works.”
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, and host of Washington Watch, added, "Removing the Nuclear threat is the number one priority. But, North Korea is the most repressive regime on the face of the planet right now, especially when it comes to religious freedom… I’m hopeful that part of the negotiations will be that we can go in there and monitor improvements… not just human rights generally, which we should, but also, more specifically religious freedom.”
