In an interview on CBS News’s “Face The Nation” channel, Mr. Graham praised Foreign Minister Antony Blinken’s work in Afghanistan.
He said: “I think Iran is weaker today than it was when the regime started 40 years ago. If I were the President [Joe] Biden, I will keep the sanctions on until Iran changes their behavior. I don’t want to sign an old deal with Iran because they were plotting to do something shady. ”
“I will warn President Biden, because it was not by Mr. Trump [chính sách] that means it’s wrong, ” Mr. Graham added. “I would slow down if I were President Biden, reassess some of Trump’s policies and stay the same if they make sense.”
Mr. Graham also said “Trump’s policies serve the country well”, however, he commented further “I think Donald Trump has to rebuild his image as a politician.”
According to Mr. Graham, the impeachment attempt of former President Trump is one “Unconstitutional action”.
“If you believe he committed a crime, he could be prosecuted just like any other citizen,” Mr. Graham said. “The impeachment is a political process … The Republicans will see this as unconstitutional.”
“I’m ready to end the impeachment trial because I personally think it is blatantly unconstitutional,” Mr. Graham confirmed. “I am willing to continue to try to solve national problems. As for Donald Trump, he is the most popular figure in the Republican Party. January 6 was a very bad day for America, and he will somewhat have to accept his responsibility in history. But I do believe that by 2022, the Republican Party will explode again. “
Regarding the impeachment trial, Democrats will face an uphill battle in the Senate, because currently up to 45 Republican senators have voted in favor of the resolution considering this trial as a give. The Senate must have at least 2/3 of the necessary votes (67 votes) to be able to charge the former President.
Most recently, on February 7, Republican Senator Rand Paul (Kentucky) also announced that the second impeachment of former President Donald Trump was nothing more than a “partisan farce” to the chances of a conviction in the Senate are “zero”.
