Graham was asked by CNN about Trump saying “there’s something going on” with the way Obama is responding to terrorism, like the mass shooting in Orlando on Sunday. 

“I think that is beyond out of line,” Graham said, adding that he disagrees with Obama’s approach to dealing with terrorist groups. “I’ve never doubted that he loves his country. I think he has a world view that I don’t agree with, in terms of how to deal with radical Islam. I don’t think he’s sympathetic to their causes, I think he’s just made poor policy choices.”

In interviews Monday morning, Trump questioned the president’s commitment to combating terrorism.

"We're led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he's got something else in mind," he told “Fox and Friends.” “"And the something else in mind, you know, people can't believe it, people cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can't even mention the words 'radical Islamic terrorism.' There's something going on — it's inconceivable. There's something going on.”

"He doesn't get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands,” he added. “It's one or the other, and either one is unacceptable."
