Lindsey Graham is blaming China for North Korea suddenly backing off on negotiation with Pompeo.
More from the Hill:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) suggested on Sunday that China may have pressured North Korea to take a harder line against U.S. negotiators during a recent visit to the isolated country by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
“I see China’s hands all over this,” Graham told “Fox News Sunday,” citing an ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China as Beijing’s possible motivation. “We’re in a fight with China.”
Graham’s comments came a day after the North Korean foreign ministry released a lengthy statement, condemning U.S. negotiators’ “gangster-like demand for denuclearization.”
This is really interesting given that Trump believes that he was able to force China to influence North Korea in a positive way. But there’s still time before we figure out whether Trump’s negotiations have been successful or not…
Later in the interview Graham says we need to team up with TURKEY in Syria?! What?!
