Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told The Daily Beast on Tuesday that the Trump administration’s so-called maximum pressure campaign on Iran isn’t working.
“Clearly what we’re doing isn’t working,” Graham said, adding that the goal of the administration’s Iran policy should be to deter Tehran from escalating tensions in the region.
Following his phone call with The Daily Beast, Graham in a series of tweets called on the Trump administration to do more, saying the “measured response” by President Trump is “seen by the Iranian regime as an act of weakness.” On the same night as a Tuesday fundraising event in Silicon Valley, Trump tweeted back at Graham: “No Lindsey, it was a sign of strength that some people just don’t understand!”
