Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Wednesday he’s not comfortable with how cozy President Trump has gotten with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“Enough with ‘I love you’” Graham said at an event in D.C. “This love crap needs to stop. There’s nothing to love about Kim Jong Un.”

Graham’s comments come after Trump said last week he and the North Korean leader “fell in love” during their correspondence about the denuclearization of the peninsula after the two met in Singapore over the summer.
“No, really,” Trump said at a rally in West Virginia on Saturday. “He wrote me beautiful letters. They were great letters. And then, we fell in love.”
Graham argued that the North Korean government is trying to divide the United States from its alliance with South Korea and Trump’s affection for Kim clouds that effort.
“I’m worried that we’re being played here,” Graham said. “In his [Trump’s] world, he’s trying to pull him in. Charm works, insults work. But this is different.”
