Tom Cotton: ‘Joe Biden Kept His Promise to the Taliban and Broke His Promise to Americans’

Senator Tom Cotton put the scope of President Biden’s abandonment of American citizens in Afghanistan in sharp perspective on Tuesday. Cotton appeared on Fox News and slammed the president for his indefensible actions.

“I think this is an example of the Biden administration recognizing that this is a debacle that will reverberate for many, many years to come, not just in Afghanistan but in relation to our adversaries around the world,” Cotton said. “And they’re trying to put a happy face on it, they’re trying to spin it for domestic political purposes. But most Americans recognize that Joe Biden is solely responsible for the fiasco we’ve seen over the last three weeks in Afghanistan.”

“There’s been much talk about how to get the remaining Americans and those Afghan citizens who helped our American military out for years and years, how we get them out of there safely,” Faulkner said. “You heard the Pentagon Spokesperson John Kirby saying we are heartbroken, but committed. First of all, is that enough?”

“No, Harris, it’s not. It’s nice to be heartbroken, it’d be better to be committed to getting everyone out like Joe Biden says he was. In fact, Joe Biden promised the Taliban America would leave by August 31,” Senator Cotton added. “Joe Biden promised American citizens in Afghanistan he would stay until he got them out.”

“When the rubber hit the road, Joe Biden kept his promise to the Taliban and he broke his promise to Americans,” he said.

It sums the Biden debacle up perfectly.
