J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy and 2022 Ohio U.S. Senate candidate, said he is worried President Joe Biden’s botched foreign policy could put the United States at risk of future terror attacks.
“Afghanistan by itself is a disaster, but you combine it with what’s going on at our southern border, you create an opportunity for all of these terrorists to flow across our country completely unchecked,” Vance said during an interview on Breitbart News Saturday with host Matthew Boyle.
During the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in the weeks leading up to August 31, the Taliban freed thousands of Islamic State prisoners from abandoned U.S. air bases and obtained billions of dollars worth of U.S. military equipment originally left behind for Afghan military forces. At the same time, Biden is overseeing one of the worst migrant surges in American history.
