Republican Senator Lindsey Graham warns that a war between Israel and Iran could be imminent, and blames US President Joe Biden for the situation.

“I’ve never been more worried than I am right now about a war between Iran and Israel,” Graham says on Fox News. “The State of Israel is in a bad spot here. How much longer do they wait before they act? I don’t think you can trust the United States with Israel’s security.”

Graham strongly opposes Biden’s stated plan to reenter the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, as indirect negotiations in Vienna on the agreement have continued for months.

“We have a chance to keep Iran on the ropes,” Graham says. “We have a chance to keep them in a box. But every day they get stronger because Biden doesn’t understand the nature of the threat.”
