Lindsey Graham blames press after Donald Trump causes UK ambassador’s resignation

Lindsey Graham blames press after Donald Trump causes UK ambassador’s resignationLindsey Graham blamed the press for Kim Darroch’s sudden resignation as the UK ambassador to the US shortly after Donald Trump angrily announced he would no longer work with the foreign official.Mr Darroch announced his resignation from the post on Wednesday morning after the president called him “pompous” and “stupid” in a series of tweets.The president’s Twitter attacks followed leaked memos that Mr Darroch sent to the US about Mr Trump, in which the UK ambassador described his administration as “uniquely dysfunctional” and “inept.”Announcing his resignation on Wednesday, Mr Darroch said it had become “impossible” to remain in the ambassador position after his public row with Mr Trump. Reports indicated that decision also had to do with Boris Johnson — the likely successor to Prime Minister Theresa May — and his failure to defend the ambassador amid his confrontation with the president. Mr Graham’s statement on the developments made no mention of the president’s quarrel with Mr Darroch, however. Rather, the Republican senator appeared to attack the press for covering the context within the leaked memos, describing the news cycle as “a good example of selective media coverage of an issue.”“Kim Darroch did an outstanding job as ambassador and sorry to see he has resigned his post,” Mr Graham tweeted on Wednesday.“He got a raw deal from press,” the senator added. Mr Graham then posted a screenshot of a reported leaked memo in which Mr Darroch seemingly wrote about the president’s shot at re-election: “Trump may emerge from the flames, battered but intact, like Schwarzenegger in the final scenes of the Terminator.” > Kim Darroch did an outstanding job as Ambassador and sorry to see he has resigned his post. > > He got a raw deal from press.> > — Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) > > July 10, 2019The ambassador “always understood the strength of President Trump,” he added, saying Mr Darroch “referred to [Trump] as the ‘Terminator’ who is indestructible and will most likely re-elected.”The president lambasted Mr Darroch after the leaks were published in global news outlets, telling reporters on Sunday: “The ambassador has not served the UK well, I can tell you that.”“We are not big fans of that man and he has not served the UK well,” he continued. “So I can understand it, and I can say things about him but I won’t bother.”Mr Trump then called the ambassador “wacky,” a “very stupid guy” and “a pompous fool” in a series of tweets.“Tell him the USA now has the best Economy & Military anywhere in the World, by far and they are both only getting bigger, better and stronger,” he wrote, adding, “Thank you, Mr. President!”

Lindsey Graham ‘hell-bent’ on replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg despite Supreme Court saying she is 'cancer free'

Lindsey Graham ‘hell-bent’ on replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg despite Supreme Court saying she is 'cancer free'Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said she doesn’t plan on retiring before the presidential election in 2020 — but Republicans appear to have other ideas. Donald Trump’s White House and close allies have begun preparing for her replacement, with senior Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham saying he will be “hell-bent” on replacing the notorious liberal justice with a conservative upon her departure — a move that could radically shift the balance of the court for decades. Despite the Supreme Court indicating the justice was recovering well after having two malignant nodules removed from her lung, the South Carolina Republican said on Fox News Sunday he would seek to fill the next open seat on the nation’s highest court with a conservative judge like the two others Donald Trump has selected during his presidency, including Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Donald Trump slowing planned withdrawal from Syria, says Lindsey Graham

Donald Trump slowing planned withdrawal from Syria, says Lindsey GrahamPresident Donald Trump has ordered a slowdown to the withdrawal of US forces in Syria, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said on Sunday. "I think we’re in a pause situation," the South Carolina Republican said outside the White House after lunch with the president. Trump announced earlier this month that he was ordering the withdrawal of all roughly 2,000 troops from war-torn Syria, with aides expecting it to take place swiftly. The president had declared victory over the Islamic State group in Syria, though pockets of fighting remain. Graham had been an outspoken critic of Trump’s policy, which had drawn bipartisan criticism. The announcement also had shocked lawmakers and American allies, including Kurds who have fought alongside the US against the Islamic State group and face an expected assault by Turkey. "I think we’re slowing things down in a smart way," Graham said, adding that Trump was very aware of the plight of the Kurds. Critics had contended that the US withdrawal would embolden Iran and Russia, which have supported the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. National security adviser John Bolton was expected to travel to Israel and Turkey next weekend to discuss the president’s plans with the American allies.
