It looks like Senator Lindsey Graham’s streak of good behavior has come to an end.
Graham joined both Repbuclian and Democratic senators in condemning President Trump’s proposed 23 percent cut of the U.S. foreign aid and diplomacy budget.
“We’re not going to approve this budget reduction. It’s insane. It makes no sense,” Graham stated. “I don’t know who writes these things over in the White House, but they clearly don’t understand the value of soft power.”
Graham further depicted the plan as “short-sighted” and announced that the Appropriations panel that he is chairman of would actually go in the opposite direction of the proposal and restore the departments funding to its previous level.
