Graham blocks resolution recognizing Armenian genocide after Erdogan meeting

Graham objected to passing the resolution in the Senate, saying senators shouldn’t “sugarcoat history or try to rewrite it.”

Under the Senate’s rules, any one senator can ask for consent to pass a bill or resolution, but any one senator can block it…

“I just met with President Erdoğan and President Trump about the problems we face in Syria by the military incursion by Turkey. I do hope that Turkey and Armenia can come together and deal with this problem,” he added on the Senate floor.

Graham added that he was objecting “not because of the past but because of the future.”
