During a Fox News interview, Lindsey Graham said, “I miss Trump.”
During a viral interview, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he misses former President Donald Trump and derided President Joe Biden’s meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as “all fluff and pleasant talk.”
The GOP senator criticized the Biden administration of not being tough enough on China and Russia during an appearance on The Ingraham Angle on Thursday night. Graham stated, ” “We’ve had two cyberattacks on our economy that originated in Russian territory and were carried out by Russian entities that the Russian government appears to have given a clearance to.

“And you had mounting evidence that the coronavirus originated in a Chinese laboratory rather than in nature, and is Biden urging the Europeans to do anything to counter Russian cyberterrorism?” Is he even discussing what we should do to contain China?

Graham went on to say: “Let’s be honest for a moment. Trump was feared by the evil people. Who is terrified of Vice President Joe Biden? While China is dismantling Hong Kong’s democracy and committing genocide against the Uyghurs, the Europeans are discussing a trade pact with China. So, this completely boggles my mind.
“They’re talking about going back into the Iranian nuclear deal even though Iran hasn’t changed its behavior at all. I can tell you one thing, the Israelis miss a stronger American president.”
The G7 meeting that begins in Cornwall, southwest England, on Friday is Biden’s first overseas summit since taking office in January. The president will hold talks with the leaders of the other six nations that make up the groupâ€”the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Japan and Italy. He had a separate meeting with Johnson on Thursday, discussing topics including Brexit, cybersecurity and climate change.
In another Fox interview aired on Thursday, Graham said he wasn’t convinced by what Chinese scientists had told a team of international researchers during their visit to Wuhan. He described Peter Daszak, a member of the research team, as “detached from reality” about how China operates.
Graham went on a Fox media blitz on Thursday, also writing an op-ed for the broadcaster’s website that claimed Trump lost the. This is a brief summary.
