  • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham criticized President Donald Trump on Thursday after the riots at the US Capitol.
  • "When it comes to accountability, the president needs to understand that his actions were the problem, not the solution," Graham said.
  • Graham said he was "embarrassed and disgusted" about Wednesday's breach, and described the perpetrators as "domestic terrorists" that need to be prosecuted.
... "When it comes to accountability, the president needs to understand that his actions were the problem, not the solution," Graham said during a news conference, adding that the president's legacy has been "tarnished."

"It breaks my heart that my friend, a president of consequence, would allow yesterday to happen and it will be a major part of his presidency," he said. "It was a self-inflicted wound."
