Graham said during an interview on Fox News ‘America’s Newsroom’ that problems arising from the troop withdrawal could be “all so avoided” before reflecting on his damaged personal relationship with the president.

“I have known Joe Biden for a long time, I had a good personal relationship with him. He is a decent man. But what he did in Afghanistan, I will never forgive him for, he has blood on his hands and he has done America is less secure, “Graham said.

He said Biden had been “the most consistently wrong man in foreign policy in my lifetime,” adding: “When it comes to Joe Biden, he has made America less secure, he has acted in a very dishonest way.”

“I can not wait for the next election to stop this socialist train on the domestic side and have a chance to get a commander-in-chief who knows how to keep this country safe,” the senator said.

The personal relationship between Graham and Biden has been widely known for years, beginning when the two served in the Senate together, though the friendship seemed to weaken amid tense biases throughout Washington.

Graham spoke of his friendship with Biden in 2015, calling the then vice president “the nicest person I think I’ve ever met in politics” and “an equally good man that God has ever created.”

“If you can not admire Joe Biden as a person, you have a problem. You have to do some self-evaluation, because what is not to like?” Graham added.

In December, however, their relationship hit a public breach when Biden during an interview called Graham “a personal disappointment” when asked about their relationship.

Their relationship reached a boiling point in the middle of Afghanistan’s withdrawal in August, when Graham said he believes “Joe Biden deserves to be sued” for his handling of the withdrawal.
