Joe Biden doubled down and shifted blame as Afghanistan further descended into chaos. Speaking from the White House on Monday, Biden said he stood by his decisions and added after 20 years, there would never be a good time to pull U.S. troops out of Afghanistan.

Biden went on to say the U.S. mission was never to nation build, but rather prevent a terror attack on the homeland. While he admitted everything unfolded faster than his administration anticipated, he continued to blame President Trump as well as Afghan leaders for running away as the Taliban rapidly took over the country.

“Afghanistan political leaders gave up and fled the country. The Afghan military collapsed, sometimes without trying to fight,” he stated. “If anything, the developments of the past week reinforce that ending U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan now was the right decision. American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves.”

Biden added U.S. troops would continue to evacuate Americans and vulnerable Afghans in the coming days and threatened swift action if the Taliban were to interfere.
