Graham warns that Trump's deal with North Korea needs approval from Congress

Source: The Hill




BY BRETT SAMUELS - 06/12/18 09:14 AM EDT

Sen. Lindsey Graham(R-S.C.) on Tuesday said any agreement between the U.S. and North Korea that comes from President Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un should come to Congress for approval.

“Not only do I want to see the details, I want to vote on them," Graham said on NBC's "Today."

"So here’s what I would tell President Trump: I stand with you…but anything you negotiate with North Korea will have to come to the Congress for our approval," he continued. "But I’m hopeful."

He also signaled some doubt about the details of the denuclearization agreement Trump achieved with Kim.

2. There are no details to see. They are in Trump's addled mind

Trump beachfront development condos and hotels, Trump branded trinkets, personal money to be made, dictator military parade advice
...

All for quitting war exercises with SK, turning a blind eye to human rights violations, and a vaguely worded document that says progress is being made.

MAGA!!!

4. The cowardly in the rear with the gear Lindsey is thirsting for spilled blood NOW

This neocon chickenhawk wanted dead N. Koreans splattered all over the Korean Peninsula ASAP, but Don the Con has betrayed him.

Grahams only hope before the mid-terms now is a preemptive attack and bloodbath in Iran.

5. Now is the time for all the GOPers

who have been mildly critical of Trump (I'm looking at you, Jeff "Talk is Cheap" Flake, among others) to dust off their copies of the Constitution and re-read the parts that deal with the powers of the Senate, especially when it comes to treaties. And then do their jobs.

But I'm not holding my breath as long as the husband of the Secretary of Transportation controls the Senate.
