Chuck Todd, moderator of NBC’s Meet the Press, discussed the potential candidates for the 2016 U.S. presidential election, including a possible third run for former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, during the Sunday morning program, Today.com said.

While discussing Romney, Todd said, “I think he believes he should be president.”

Todd also talked about the Republican-controlled Congress that President Barack Obama will face for the first time when he gives his State of the Union Address on Tuesday, the report said.

In addition, he challenged Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to defend a statement in which he said President Obama’s foreign policy was “getting people killed”, Mediaite.com said.

“The safe heavens in Syria and Jordan by ISIS and other terrorist groups are a direct threat to the United States, ” Graham said. “So yes, his campaign promises should be adjusted based on reality.”
