Sen. Lindsey Graham said during an interview on Wednesday’s episode of The Water Cooler with host David Brody that he believes President Biden has “been one of the most destabilizing presidents on foreign policy in modern history.”
The South Carolina Republican predicted that Biden will regret his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Afghanistan: The president “wants to end the war before the 20th anniversary for political reasons. I think he’s gonna regret this,” Graham said.
The lawmaker warned that radical Islamists are bent on murder, and said that while former President Trump had kept such terrorists under foot, they are now being permitted to rise up again.
“Well, in Afghanistan, you may be tired of fighting radical Islam, they’re not tired of fighting you. If you’re listening to this program, if they could get you, they would kill you. They want to destroy the State of Israel,” Graham said. “And they want to kill every Christian they can get their hands on. These people are religious Nazis. We’ve had ’em at bay for the last few years. Trump did a hell of a job putting his foot on their throat. And now we’re gonna let ’em back up,” he said.
Graham mentioned the influx of migrants along America’s southern border and noted that terrorists could attempt to enter the U.S. along with other illegal migrants seeking to come into the country.
“The border is completely broken. How easy would it be for a terrorist to intermingle among all the illegal immigrants coming here and sneak into the border? We found four or five on the terrorist watch list,” Graham said.
The senator described the Iranians as “licking their chops because Biden is back into the nuclear deal again.” The Biden administration has appeared eager to make a deal with Iran to renew the JCPOA and lift sanctions on Iran that former President Trump imposed on them after pulling the U.S. out of the deal.
