The world is becoming a “danger zone” under President Biden’s “weak leadership,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) declared on Monday. She spoke as the U.S. continues to evacuate Americans ahead of the Taliban-approved August 31 deadline, days after a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport killed over 100 individuals, including 13 U.S. servicemembers.
“The world is fast becoming a danger zone under the weak leadership of Joe Biden,” Blackburn warned as the August 31 deadline swiftly approaches. In another post, the Tennessee Republican explained the U.S. lost its “substantial leverage” over the Taliban “the day the Biden administration handed over Bagram Airfield, U.S. intel, and over $80 billion in military equipment”:
