Presidential Candidate Graham Tells Trump “To Go To Hell”

Republican US Senator Lindsey Graham said it’s time for Republicans to rebuke presidential hopeful Donald Trump, urging his party to tell Trump to “go to hell.”

“You know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell,” Graham said on CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday.

The GOP Presidential Candidate was responding to Trump’s statement released Monday calling for the U.S. to ban all Muslims from entering the country.

“He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot,” Graham told Alisyn Camerota. “He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represents the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for. … He’s the ISIL man of the year.”

Graham said Trump’s rhetoric benefits ISIS in helping them recruit people to their cause. He said having traveled to the Middle East 36 times as a lawmaker and in the Air Force reserve, he knows the troops and diplomats on the front lines are very concerned.

“What Mr. Trump is doing — and I don’t think he has a clue about anything. He’s just just trying to get his numbers up and get the biggest reaction he can,” Graham said. “He is helping the enemy of this nation. He is empowering radical Islam. And if he knew anything about the world at all, you would know that most Muslims reject this ideology.”

MSNBC Host Angered By Presidential Candidate Trump

Trump invited Scarborough to go to a break. This seemed to anger Scarborough even more, so he raised his voice over Trumps and demanded that his producers “go to break”. Comcast owns MSNBC.
