Biden administration’s credibility ‘damaged deeply’ by Afghanistan troop withdrawal: Pompeo
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo weighs in on the Biden administration’s handling of the U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and the botched Kabul drone strike.
NBC host Chuck Todd had some scathing criticism for President Joe Biden after a series of repeated setbacks over the weekend.
Todd appeared as a guest on NBC’s “Sunday Today with Willie Geist” to discuss Biden’s repeated political failings including the failed Kabul drone strike, France’s recalling of its U.S. ambassadors, and the FDA’s rejection of booster shots for COVID-19 for people under 65. Since Biden is planning to speak to the United Nations on Tuesday, Geist questioned what people should expect from the president.
“How is the White House managing all this, and what do you expect to hear from the president at the UN on Tuesday?” Geist asked.
Finally, Todd did offer some optimism for the president by advising him to focus on the Democrats’ upcoming $3.5 trillion spending bill and its chances passing Congress.
“I think the next month’s probably still going to be tough for him politically because he’s got to get this big bill through Congress. If he can get that thing passed, Willie, I think he can start to take a few breaths here a little bit, but he’s got a lot on the line here this month. That’s for sure,” Todd said.
President Biden will address the United Nations for the first time since taking office on Tuesday.
