Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) had only praise for President Trump after the U.S. response to the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq. He also had a dig at former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton.

On Tuesday, Dec. 31, the senator took to Twitter.
“Very proud of [Trump] acting decisively in the face of threats to our embassy in Baghdad,” Graham tweeted as the news unfolded. “He has put the world on notice—there will be no Benghazi’s on his watch.”


At the same time, Graham backed up the president’s warning to the country, saying they need to think before they act rashly, as the U.S. reaction to any attacks will be totally different to what decisions the previous government had implemented.

“Be careful what you wish for. A country that depends on the ability to refine oil for its existence needs to be cautious. President Trump, unlike President Obama, will hold you accountable for threats against Americans and hit you where it hurts the most.”


U.S. airstrikes on Sunday killed 25 fighters of the Iran-backed militia in Iraq, in retaliation for the killing last week of an American contractor in a rocket attack on an Iraqi military base.

The storming of the embassy in Baghdad was a response by dozens of Iran-backed Iraqi Shiite militiamen and their followers, to the U.S. airstrikes.
