Lindsey Graham Talks to Trump: Now Optimistic on Foreign Policy

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R) has seemed to have changed his view on what President Trump is doing in Syria. In an interview he gave with Maria Bartiromo on ‘Sunday Morning Futures’, he spoke much more eupeptic about the situation in Syria and is now seeing a possibility for “historic solutions”.


According to Graham, he has had a conversation with the President about Syria. This conversation has given Graham a renewed optimism on the situation regarding the Kurds, the Caliphate, and the Syrian oil fields. President Trump detailed his plan to Graham about the future of the oil fields in Syria, reassuring Graham that the US would not allow them to fall into the hands of the Iranians or Assad.

Graham also said there is a plan to modernize the oil fields and leave them in the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces.

All of this was a sharp turn for Graham who earlier in the week was harshly criticizing the President. Graham had called the President “Rand Paul” and stated, “this is the most screwed up decision I’ve seen since I have been in Congress”, regarding the removal of 50 US troops from the Syrian Turkey border. It seems that now that things have been clarified to Graham he is content, for now.


Fox Business’ Charles Payne tweeted out about the interview with Bartiromo and Graham optimistically:

“In DC too much time on blame and finger-pointing rather than solutions. Its fine to be critical but far more important to craft positive outcomes”
