South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham tweeted on Sunday evening that he spoke with US President Donald Trump on the matters of the Turkish invasion of Syria, seeming pleased with the results of the conversation. 

In the tweet, Graham offered a confirmation of the economic sanctions that both houses of Congress have been pushing, sanctions Trump himself has so far mainly threatened to employ.

"It is imperative that we stop the bloodshed and stabilize northeastern Syria to prevent the reemergence of ISIS and the rise of Iran," Graham also tweeted.
