"I think Lucifer may be the only person Trump can beat in a general election," the former GOP presidential candidate said on CBS's "Face The Nation" in an interview that aired Sunday.

Graham, who has thrown his support behind Cruz and repeatedly attacked Trump, also slammed Trump's foreign policy after the front-runner made a speech last week advocating for an "America first" approach.

He advised his Republican colleagues to distance themselves from Trump.

"Be your own person. Reject Donald Trump's approach to solving immigration, because it won't work and it's hateful," he said.

"Establish your own persona and your own relationship with American women voters. Embrace conservatism, reject Trumpism," he continued.

"To my Republican colleagues, distance yourself as much as you can from Donald Trump, because he's toxic for conservatism."
