Afghan President Rebuffed Biden’s Request to Falsely Claim Taliban Were Losing: ‘Mr. President, We Are Facing a Full-Scale Invasion.’
President Joe Biden pressured Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to paint a picture of his country that suggested it was winning its war against the Taliban in the weeks leading up to the United States’ withdrawal, according to a transcript of their final phone call published on Tuesday.
“I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” Biden said in his final phone call with the Afghan leader before Afghanistan’s fall, according to a transcript published by Reuters.
Could you imagine if Trump did this? The attacks would be relentless. The media owes it to the American people to also attack Biden with the same ferociousness.
