Lindsey Graham: Trump Admin Has ‘Blind Spot on Russia I Still Can’t Figure Out’

Even though Senator Lindsey Graham is publicly more positive now about President Trump than he’s been in the past, he’s still concerned about the President’s “blind spot” on Russia.

“You passed a tough sanctions bill,” Chuck Todd said. “You passed it in July. The president signed it in early August. There was a deadline of October 1st. It is not October 1st. It is October 20th and the sanctions have not been implemented. Why?”

Graham said that the Trump administration “is slow when it comes to Russia,” adding, “They have a blind spot on Russia I still can’t figure out.”

He directly appealed to the President by saying, “Mr. President, go after Russia because they’re coming after us.”

However, he concluded by defending Trump in saying, “I think he’s beginning to understand the threats we face better and better each day.”
