Senator Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) spoke to Fox News, saying his personal relationship with President Joe Biden had reached a “breaking point” after the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan in the wake of the Taliban seizing power.
“I have known Joe Biden for a long time, I had a good personal relationship with him. He’s a decent man. “But what he did in Afghanistan I will never forgive him for, he has blood on his hands, and he has made America less secure,” Graham said, calling him “the most consistently wrong foreign policy man in my life.” named.
“When it comes to Joe Biden, he made America less safe, he acted in a very dishonorable way,” he said. “I can not wait until the next election to stop this socialist train on the domestic side, and get a chance to get a commander-in-chief who knows how to keep this country safe.”
Graham and Biden have known each other for years; they served together in the Senate. However, the relationship between the two has deteriorated since the president refer to Graham as “a personal disappointment” when asked about their relationship.
Over the summer, Graham called for Biden to be charged with withdrawing from Afghanistan, saying the president “ignored sound advice” and “has been so for 40 years.”
Biden defended his administration’s response, saying the US mission in Afghanistan was never intended “to be a nation building,” and insisted that it has always been about “preventing a terrorist attack on American homeland” and “never supposed to create a united centralized democracy.”
