They have no idea what just hit them.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed President Joe Biden for the current situation in Afghanistan stating that he has ruined America’s reputation with other countries. He added that the Taliban has control of America’s future foreign policies.
He continued stating that this marks a “sad day” in American history because of the way Biden is handling the current evacuation efforts.
“I think [Biden] has ruined our reputation on the world stage,” McCarthy stated. “I think he is allowing the Taliban to direct our reputation but more importantly our foreign policy. When you have countries such as the U.K. and France that are in Afghanistan for only one reason, that America was attacked, that are begging us to extend the deadline past the 31 so they can get their citizens out, that the president sides with the Taliban because the Taliban told him when? That is a very sad day for America. And you know what Nancy Pelosi said on the floor? That it was a good day for America and Democrats because all they focused on was this spending and what the president talked about.”
He added, “Are they so tone-deaf that they don’t know what’s happening in the world? This is not going to harm us for the next week. This is going to harm us for the next two decades, that we’re leaving Americans behind. And when he gives the date, President Biden, of August 31, it’s really the 28. That’s when all the troops have to be out.”
