Woodward book claims Lindsey Graham suggested Kim Jong Un be assassinated

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham reportedly suggested that North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un be assassinated, notes the Daily Beast.

Famed journalist Bob Woodward writes in his just-released book, ‘Fear: Trump in the White House,’ that Graham made the proposal during a national security meeting, days after President Trump referred to Kim as “Little Rocket Man.”

Graham is said to have recommended that China carry out the assassination then replace Kim with a “North Korean general they control.”

Trump clearly didn’t act on that advice and opted for diplomacy instead.

He held a meeting Kim in Singapore in June and, according to the White House, is planning another.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Monday that the follow-up summit was requested by Kim and commented that it is something “we are open to and are already in the process of coordinating.”
