"I just want to say I think Ted is qualified to run for President of the United States. I think he is a natural born citizen."

---Lindsey Graham on whether Ted Cruz is qualified to run for president.

Senator Lindsey Graham called into Kilmeade & Friends to weigh in on the controversy surrounding Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president, dropping out of the race, his thoughts on the two tiered GOP debates, whether or not he still believes Donald Trump is indeed coach-able when it comes to foreign policy and the latest on North Korea.

Listen here:

Graham on Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president

Graham: I just want to say I think Ted is qualified to run for president of the United States. I think he is a natural born citizen

Brian: You do? Because John McCain is not sure

Graham: Well I am sure. Whether I am right or not, I believe that to be so. I don't want Ted to be the nominee, I don't dislike Ted but I don't think that issue disqualifies him.

Brian: Are you surprised it's being brought up now?

Graham: No, not by Trump. not at all. No.

Brian: Why are you laughing?

Graham: Because I thought it was pretty clever on his part actually.

Graham on dropping out and his thoughts on the two tiered GOP debates

Graham: I was proud of the effort. Without getting on the big stage, it's almost impossible to break through. The under-card debates last for about an hour and I could never get on the big stage and that was frustrating. If I had a chance to do that I think I may have had a different outcome.

Graham on if Trump is still coach-able on foreign policy

Graham: Yeah, he seems to be willing to listen to things. He is not set in concrete. Yeah, I hope he will listen, not just to me. If I were advising Donald Trump I would say spend a half day with General Jack Keane, he will bring you up to speed in what we need to do.
