Sen. Lindsey Graham Bewilders Ivanka Trump's Women's Conference With Terrorism Rant

While on a trip to Cote d'Ivoire last week to help Ivanka Trump promote women’s access to capital in Africa, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned of religious wars with “radical ideology” that would be “hell on earth for women” if they are not “destroyed.”

“It’s the enemy of mankind, not just the United States,” Graham said, of the theoretical invaders, according to a recording provided to The Daily Beast. “Some of our soldiers will be needed, but not a lot. Most of the fighting will be done by people in the region. I promise you the enemy will lose because very few mothers or fathers want to turn their daughters over to ISIS, Al Qaeda or any other group.”

As he spoke, confused attendees could be heard on the recording asking each other in hushed tones what Graham was talking about. Graham and Ivanka, along with an American delegation that included Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), were in Cote d’Ivoire to participate in the Women Entrepreneurship Finance Initiative (We-Fi). The initiative, an idea was first proposed by Ivanka in 2017, is housed in the World Bank and is a global partnership with governments, banks and other stakeholders. It’s goal is to raise money to help prop up women businesses.

Following a panel We-Fi’s mission, Graham took the microphone and seemingly steered the conversation away from the day’s talking points to talk about a “radical ideology” that would cause war to break out, according to a recording provided to The Daily Beast. Asked about the comments Monday, Graham’s office said the senator was referring to “radical Islam.”


Lindsey seems to be going off the rails (again.)

1. Since a trump and republican senators are involved I would strongly suggest

that the World Bank perform financial audits on aregular basis. These people really know nothing but how to grift and they are masters at it.

2. Sorry Lindsay, no amount of "tough talk" is going to make

us forget what mousy little Trump ass-kisser you are. Now fuck off.

4. it appears that he doesn't understand the purpose of the conference. But why would he?

My guess is he doesn’t know jack about women.
