While joining Judge Jeanine, Senator Lindsey Graham reacted to a series of attacks unleashed by Iran involving ships and a U.S. drone.
On Thursday, one Japanese and one Norwegian tanker were attacked as a result of suspected mines that exploded. Iran was accused of planting the mines on the tankers after footage showed Iranian crew members on small boats removing an unexploded mine from one of the tankers to hide evidence.
It was later revealed that Iran tried to shoot down a U.S. drone that arrived on the scene of the exploded tankers, which escalated tension between the U.S. and Iran.
The attacks occurred in the Strait of Hormuz, where 20% the world’s oil passes through every year.
In his reaction to the situation, Graham said Iran is “hurting” as a result of sanctions imposed by President Trump and “they’re trying to break our will.” Video Below
“To President Trump,” Graham continued, “Do not let them take over the Straits of Hormuz. Keep the pressure on.”
He added, “If they continue to do this, sink their navy like Ronald Reagan did back in the 80’s.”
Then after praising Trump’s foreign policy, Graham pleaded for Trump to “keep the Ayatollah on the ropes.” Video Below
