Will Kim Jong Un give Trump a mulligan?Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., had a stern warning for Kim Jong Un on Friday“The worst possible thing you can do with Donald Trump is meet with him in person and try to play him,” Graham lectured Kim in a statement a day after Trump shocked the world by agreeing to meet with the North Korean leader. “If you do that it will be the end of you — and your regime.”White House press secretary Sarah Sanders underscored that message, noting that “Senator Graham has been on the other side of that and certainly knows the capabilities and determination of President Trump.”On the surface, this was about nuclear diplomacy.
