Joe loses his grip on reality: President claims ‘no one is being killed’ in the Kabul airport chaos despite 12 confirmed deaths and says he can’t ‘recall’ if he was told to keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan

Joe loses his grip on reality: President claims ‘no one is being killed’ in the Kabul airport chaos despite 12 confirmed deaths and says he can’t ‘recall’ if he was told to keep 2,500 troops in Afghanistan

  • President Joe Biden insisted his military advisers did not tell him to keep a U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan
  • ‘No one said that to me that I can recall,’ he told ABC News in his first interview since the Taliban take over 
  • He said his top brass did not argue that all troops would be pulled from Afghanistan ‘in a time frame’  
  • There were multiple warnings, however, and The Wall Street Journal reported this week that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley wanted to keep 2,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan
  • He also insisted ‘no one is being killed’ in the chaos surrounding the Kabul airport despite 12 confirmed deaths
  • Biden also said in the interview that he would have withdrawn troops from even without Donald Trump’s deal – in a stark reversal of blaming the situation on his predecessor 
  •  This was the first time Biden faced questions from media over his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan 
  • Biden chose former Bill Clinton aide Stephanopoulos for the interview and hasn’t taken questions from other members of the media for nine days
