Senator Lindsey Graham is comparing President Trump’s speech on Iran to the speech given about the Berlin wall by then-President Ronald Reagan.
According to The Hill:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said President Trump’s speech on Iran will be a highlight of his presidency, comparing it to former President Reagan’s 1987 speech in Berlin urging Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.”
The Wednesday night remarks on Fox News by Graham, who frequently offers public praise of Trump, were ridiculed as hyperbolic by critics.
“This speech will be talked about long after his second term,” Graham said. “This is on par with Reagan’s ‘tear down this wall’ speech.”
Michael Steele, the former Republican National Committee chairman, said Graham is “smoking stuff none of us should get our hands on because it clearly does some stuff to the brain.”
Steele has been a known never-Trumper and is now a staple on MSNBC. Liberals were concerned with escalation but just like he has previously President Trump has chosen to take the path of deescalation.
