Sen. Lindsey Graham Pressures Trump To Attack Iran

The Hill reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Tuesday urged President Trump to take “decisive action” against Iran after attacks on Saudi oil facilities the U.S. thinks Tehran likely was responsible for.

“The problems with Iran only get worse over time so it is imperative we take decisive action to deter further aggression by the Ayatollah and his henchman,” Graham tweeted. The South Carolina lawmaker pointed to Trump’s response when Iran shot down a U.S. military drone in June as a case of not acting decisively enough.

Trump approved airstrikes against Iran following the drone incident but said he called them off at the last minute after being told it would lead to more than 100 casualties, saying the U.S. had been “cocked and loaded” to retaliate.
