Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said the Biden administration should evaluate policies of former President Donald Trump “and keep them in place if they make sense.”

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Graham praised what Secretary of State Antony Blinken has already done in Afghanistan.

“I think Iran is weaker today than when the regime started 40 years ago,” Graham said. “If I was President [Joe] Biden, I would keep the sanctions on until Iran changed its behavior. I would not want to go into an old deal with Iran because they've been up to no good.”

“I would caution President Biden because Trump did it, doesn't mean it is wrong,” Graham added. “I would slow down if I were President Biden and re-evaluate some of the Trump policies and keep them in place if they make sense.”

Graham also praised Blinken and the Biden administration for “re-evaluating our presence in Afghanistan to keep the footprint low, but not to walk away and lose all of the gains we achieved."

According to Graham, the impeachment effort of Trump is an “unconstitutional exercise,” but conceded Trump will have to “rehabilitate” himself as a politician.

“If you believe he committed a crime, he can be prosecuted like any other citizen,” Graham said. “Impeachment is a political process… Republicans are going to view this as an unconstitutional exercise.” 

“I’m ready to end the impeachment trial because I think it is blatantly unconstitutional,” Graham added. “I'm ready to get on with trying to solve the nation's problems. As to Donald Trump, he is the most popular figure in the Republican Party. January 6th was a very bad day for America, and he'll get his share of blame in history. But I do believe that in 2022 the Republican is going to come roaring back.”

Graham said Trump’s “policies serve the country well,” then commented: “I think Donald Trump has to rehabilitate himself as a politician.”
