( – On Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) slammed Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Tuesday stating that he did not believe that he would be able to come up with a border deal that was acceptable. He proceeded to push for President Biden to be more directly involved in the border negotiations in order for an acceptable deal to be decided on.

Graham’s criticisms of Murphy came after a Senate meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. As he argued, so long as Murphy was the lead negotiator in the border discussions they would not be able to get a deal that would be acceptable to the Republican Party. He further claimed that the key to getting an acceptable border deal was to increase the level of Biden’s involvement in the deal.

Graham pointed out that one of the problems with Murphy’s negotiations was that he was too concerned with how he would sell any potential deal to the United States. He added that border control was the President’s job “above all others” and that he needed to take part in the negotiations.

Graham has been involved in the border negotiations over the past few weeks, and has complained about Murphy being “very unhelpful.” Graham added that they were not attempting to hold the border hostage with their actions but instead, they were focused on keeping the American people safe.

Murphy has declined to comment on Graham’s criticisms, directing the press to ask the Republican Senator about it.

Murphy and Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) have been attempting to continue the border negotiations, but as of right now, a possible deal appears unlikely.
