U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is accusing President Donald Trump of misleading the American people.
The South Carolina Republican wasn’t referring to Trump maintaining his innocence regarding a phone call he had with the Ukrainian president where he suggested the foreign government might investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
Graham was, instead, talking about Trump’s decision late Sunday night to withdraw American troops from northern Syria on the grounds that the war has been won against the radical terrorist group known as ISIS.
“The biggest lie being told by the administration is that ISIS has been defeated,” Graham declared Monday morning in a phone interview aired live on Fox and Friends.
