Biden’s beach trip while Americans stuck in Afghanistan ‘an embarrassment,’ Cotton says
EXCLUSIVE: Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark., laid into President Biden for spending his weekend at the beach while Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan.
Cotton campaigned in Iowa this weekend on behalf of Republicans in the Hawkeye State, where he sat down with Fox News for an exclusive interview that touched on Afghanistan, the border crisis, the 2024 election and more.
The president’s weekend trip to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is “adding embarrassment” to “humiliation,” Cotton said.
“I think it’s an embarrassment. Simply adding embarrassment to the humiliation of Joe Biden’s reckless abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan,” the Republican senator said.
“He made a decision to get our troops out of Afghanistan by September 11, which he thought was a politically symbolic date,” Cotton continued. “But it was a tactically disastrous date right in the middle of the fighting season as the Taliban had geared up to fight again.”
