Biden speech LIVE today – President slams Trump’s Taliban deal & says he wouldn’t extend ‘forever war’ in Afghanistan

JOE Biden spoke from the White House today after America ended its longest war on Monday saying he would not extend the “forever war” in Afghanistan.

President Biden addressed the nation at 2:45pm ET from the White House.

Biden digged at former president Donald Trump saying that some of the prisoners released during his term now run the Taliban in Kabul.

The remarks come after the U.S. completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan, ending America’s longest war and closing a chapter in military history likely to be remembered for colossal failures, unfulfilled promises and a frantic final exit that cost the lives of more than 180 Afghans and 13 U.S. service members.

Air Force transport planes carried a remaining contingent of troops from Kabul airport late Monday.

Thousands of troops had spent a harrowing two weeks protecting the airlift of tens of thousands of Afghans, Americans, and others seeking to escape a country once again ruled by Taliban militants.

Biden was also slammed for referring top aide Cedric Richmond, who is black, as “boy”.

“I’m here with my senior adviser and boy who knows Louisiana very, very well and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond,” Biden said at a FEMA press briefing, according to Fox News.
