Lindsey Graham Reveals Who He Believes Is 'Most Likely' to Be the Next President

He or she?

At this point, it is unknown whether the next president of the United States will be a man or a woman, but Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) believes he knows the answer — and it's not Donald Trump.

During a speech at the New American Security's conference Monday, Graham, a one-time contender for the GOP presidential nomination, said the next commander in chief will have to deal with cuts put into place by the sequestration. During his remarks, he made it clear it would "most likely" be Hillary Clinton.

"The next president, whoever he or she — most likely she — is going to be, needs to get these defense cuts set aside," Graham said. "We need to buy back sequestration following the formula of the supercommittee where you have some revenue to buy back sequestration, defense and non-defense."

During the same address, Graham — no fan of the presumptive GOP nominee — slammed Trump for his take on defense policy.

"The bottom line: I think there's a fight within the Republican Party for who we are on foreign policy, from the Rand Paul view to the Lindsey Graham, John McCain view," he said. "And Trump's somewhere out there, somewhere saying something, I don't know where he's at. So, so, I think there's a more traditional view of foreign policy emerging on the Republican side. It's one of the reasons I wanted to run for president."

This comes not long after Graham encouraged his fellow Republicans to drop their endorsements of Trump. His instruction comes following the billionaire businessman's criticism of Mexican-American Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over cases involving Trump University.

Graham also criticized Trump for his response to the deadly Orlando terror attack, calling the real estate developer's comments "highly offensive."
