Lindsey Graham: "I Want To Applaud Mr. Trump"


Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, who says he’s meeting with the National Rifle Association to talk about banning people on the government’s no-fly list from buying guns, is on the "right road" on the issue.

“I want to applaud Mr. Trump. I think he’s [going] to the middle on something that’s very important," Mr. Graham said on 'Fox and Friends' Thursday morning.

"If you're on a no-fly list, if the government has determined that you are too dangerous to get on an airplane, I believe you shouldn’t be able to buy a gun. But [there must be] a process to challenge that determination in court."

"So that’s where Mr. Trump is going," he said. "Mr. Trump is on the right road to trying to find the middle ground. If you’re on a no-fly list, if you’ve been selected for extra screening because of your behavior, you present a danger or a threat, then I don’t think you should be able to buy a gun, but you should have a way to challenge the government’s accusation against you."
