Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told CNN’s Kate Bolduan on Tuesday that President Trump should target Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad for elimination, following a chemical attack on Syrian civilians.

Listing what the U.S. response to the attack should be, Graham said, “I would make Assad a target because he’s a war criminal.”

The senator advised President Trump to enforce his red line on Syrian chemical weapons use.

“You think [Assad’s] a legitimate military target?” Bolduan asked.

“Absolutely. I think he’s a war criminal by any definition,” Graham responded. “How many hundreds of thousands do you have to kill? Yeah, he’s definitely a legitimate target.”
