Question Lindsey Graham Warns Trump: "There Will Be Another 9/11" If U.S. Troops Leave Afghani

Lindsey Graham Warns Trump: "There Will Be Another 9/11" If U.S. Troops Leave Afghanistan

Sen. Lindsey Graham warned President Trump Tuesday morning on "Fox & Friends" that if he follows through with his stated objective of ending the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan, "there will be another 9/11."

"You may be tired of fighting radical Islam, but they're not tired of fighting you," Graham warned.

"You might get a peace deal with the Taliban, the president has put the hurting on the Taliban. They have about 30% of the country, 20% of the public agrees with them in Afghanistan -- 80% do not want to go back to the good old days where you kill people in soccer stadiums for sport and young girls can not ever go to school, so you might end the war with the Taliban, but the al Qaeda is alive and well in Afghanistan, ISIS is stronger today than they've ever been in Afghanistan," he said.

"They will hit us if we leave," Graham warned. "Iím telling the president, I applaud you for trying to lower the cost. Youíve done a good job of putting hurting on the Taliban. You canít trust the Taliban to take care of ISIS and Al Qaeda. There is no substitute for American forces in Afghanistan to protect the American homeland from radical Islam. There will be another 9/11 if we pull the plug. If you donít believe me, ask the generals in the intelligence community."

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
