By Daily Caller. resident Joe Biden walked away from a Friday press conference while a reporter asked him why he continues to trust the Taliban.
The president had just finished explaining that the U.S. had been in contact with the Taliban and didn’t expect Afghanistan to fall so fast. “But the point was that although we were in contact with the Taliban, and Doha, for this whole period of time, at some point it wasn’t expected to be a total demise of the Afghan National Force, which is 300 persons,” Biden said. . .
As Biden walked away, multiple reporters began yelling out their questions, including one who asked why he still trusts the Taliban.
“Why do you continue to trust the Taliban, Mr. President?” the reporter asked. Biden ignored the question and continued to walk away. (Read more from “Questions Unanswered: Biden Walks Away as Reporter Shouts ‘Why Do You Continue To Trust the Taliban?'” HERE)
Senate Republicans Blast Biden’s ‘Agenda of Abandonment’ as Thousands of Americans Remain Stranded in Afghanistan
By Breitbart. Senate Republicans are slamming President Biden’s overarching “agenda of abandonment” as thousands of Americans remain stranded in Afghanistan with no clear instructions or way to get out of the country following the Taliban’s takeover.
The video, released by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) on Friday, begins with a montage of news reports detailing Biden’s most recent “tragic foreign policy disaster” in Afghanistan, which has unfolded over the last few days, before stretching back to some of the other major foreign policy issues that occurred in the first few months of his presidency.
The video highlights Biden’s failure to stand up to Israel and features White House press secretary Jen Psaki failing to answer a reporter’s question regarding the U.S. assisting Israel in replenishing the Iron Dome.
“I don’t have anything to preview in terms of additional assistance,” she said as the video highlighted remarks from Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who accused the U.S. of enabling dehumanization by aiding the Jewish State.

Biden Astoundingly Claims All Americans Can Reach Kabul Airport
By New York Post. President Biden on Friday claimed that al-Qaeda is “gone” from Afghanistan and that the Taliban is letting Americans reach Kabul’s airport, before Pentagon leaders contradicted the commander in chief on both claims.
Biden stumbled repeatedly when taking his first questions from reporters on Afghanistan’s fall to the Taliban — also claiming that US allies were not displeased by the chaotic US pullout, despite rare public rebukes.
“What interest do we have in Afghanistan at this point with al Qaeda gone? We went to Afghanistan for the express purpose of getting rid of al Qaeda in Afghanistan,” Biden said in the White House East Room, defending the US departure.
Attempting to put a positive spin on ongoing evacuations, Biden said “we know of no circumstance where American citizens are carrying an American passport and are trying to get through to the airport.”
When an NPR reporter pointed out that was untrue, Biden changed his answer, saying that “to the best of our knowledge, the Taliban checkpoints, they are letting through people showing American passports” and that some Americans are struggling to reach the airport because of “the mad rush of non-Americans” crowding the area.
