Lindsey Graham has confirmed that he will run for the White House in 2016.

The South Carolina Republican senator has told CBS This Morning that he would make an official announcement on June 1st in his home town of Central.

When asked why he was considering it, Lindsey Graham said “I’m running” because “the world is falling apart” and he would make the best commander-in-chief.

He has been a fierce critic of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, particularly in the Middle East.

Lindsey Graham wants US ground troops to be sent into Iraq and Syria to combat ISIS, to prevent terror attacks in the US.

When asked by CBS whether he thought the Republican field was weak, Lindsey Graham revealed his intention to run himself.

“I’m running because of what you see on television, I’m running because I think the world is falling apart, I’ve been more right than wrong on foreign policy,” he said.

Lindsey Graham added: “It’s not the fault of others, or their lack of this or that that makes me want to run, it’s my ability in my own mind to be a good commander-in-chief and to make Washington work.”

“I am grateful, truly grateful, that no-one was injured,” Senator Michael Crapo said, as he asked for forgiveness from his constituents.

Michael Crapo added that he had tasted alcohol for the first time about a year ago, and had started drinking several nights a week to relieve stress.

“I was already thinking in my own mind that this had to end,” he told reporters.

“I believe in my heart that I had already recognized that I was on a bad path and I needed to find a different path to follow.”
