After seemingly going into hiding upon the collapse of the Afghani government, Joe Biden addressed the nation Friday about the ongoing crisis.
During the address, Biden stood beside Kamala Harris - despite rumors of a White House shade war - and Secretary of State Antony Blinken, telling the people that the Kabul airport has been secured by U.S. military forces.
“We’re going to do everything we can to provide safe evacuation to our Afghan allies,” Biden said before clarifying that “any American who wants to come home, we will get you home.”
“I cannot promise what the final outcome will be, or what it will be, that it will be without risk of loss,” he added, per Just the News. He said that a G7 summit will take place next week to figure out an Afghanistan plan of action.
During his address, Biden failed to provide numbers on how many Americans remain in Afghanistan.
He also claimed that Al Qaeda has no presence in Afghanistan, which Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby later debunked.
