In an interview on “Hannity” on Monday, Republican U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham revealed under what circumstances he would support a no-fly zone in Ukraine and urged the Biden administration to take clear and decisive action against China.

Graham said he does not currently support a no-fly zone, which NATO member Estonia has become the first interagency ally to support.

“But if there is use of chemical weapons by Putin against the Ukrainian people, I would support a no-fly zone because it would violate every war crime rule in the book,” Graham added.

“And the ban on chemical weapons would be nothing if we didn’t act with a no-fly zone. But right now, no boots on the ground, no-fly zone.

Graham went on to say that China is “trying to bail out Putin.”

“If Putin loses, China loses,” Graham added, encouraging the Biden administration not to “make the same mistake with China that you made with Russia.”

“If you believe that the Chinese are going to help Putin survive by providing military equipment and economic assistance… put on the table for China to read, the sanctions that will come [their] way, if [they] help Putin,” he said.

“I will help you as a Republican, Mr President, President Biden, if you write sanctions, secondary sanctions against China, what will happen to the Chinese economy if they bail out this war criminal, Putin. I will be your best ally in the US Senate”

Graham encouraged Biden to write down potential China sanctions, “because no one believes you unless you write it down.”
