WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on protests in Iran.
“While Europe may not hear the Iranian people’s cries for a better life, President Trump and many of us in Congress certainly do.
“It is shameful and disgraceful that European nations insist on doing business with the murderous regime of the Ayatollah and continue to ignore the pleas of the Iranian people. When it comes to confronting evil there appears to be an ‘appeasement’ gene in European politics which -- throughout history -- has led to the deaths of tens of millions people. I urge European leaders to get behind President Trump’s efforts to economically isolate the Ayatollah and stand firmly with the Iranian people to once and for all end this murderous regime.
“To make Iran great again, dump the Ayatollah.”
