Sen. Lindsey Graham took the first swing at President Joe Biden’s plan to withdraw all the U.S. troops from Afghanistan, scheduling a press conference Wednesday following the president’s remarks.

He started the press conference by telling reporters how he missed his fellow Senate hawk, the late Sen. John McCain, who agreed with Graham on foreign policy decisions, but not on ex-President Donald Trump. ‘I miss John McCain a lot, but probably no more than today because if John were with us I’d be speaking second, and he would be telling you a story about how unwise this decision is to withdraw all of our forces from Afghanistan,’ Graham said.
