Sen. Lindsey (R-S.C.) took to Twitter Thursday after President Donald Trump responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi postponing his State of the Union address by postponing her trip abroad scheduled for that day.

In a series of tweets, Republican Sen. Graham called the tit-for-tat between the two “sophomoric” and unwarranted, saying he wishes the nation’s political leaders would exhibit the same commitment to serving the country as the military personnel Pelosi had planned to visit during her trip:

“One sophomoric response does not deserve another. Speaker Pelosi’s threat to cancel the State of the Union is very irresponsible and blatantly political.”

“President Trump denying Speaker Pelosi military travel to visit our troops in Afghanistan, our allies in Egypt and NATO is also inappropriate.”

“I am glad the Speaker wants to meet our troops and hear from our commanders and allies. I am very disappointed she’s playing politics with the State of the Union.”

“I wish our political leadership could find the same desire to work for common goals as those who serve our nation in uniform and other capacities.”
