President Joe Biden is not sharing what he would do if Americans are left in Afghanistan after the U.S. completes its withdrawal at the end of the month.
During an event at the White House on Monday, NBC News’ Peter Alexander tried to ask the president, “What will you do if Americans are still in Afghanistan after the deadline?”
After going unanswered at first, Alexander asked again, which prompted Biden to respond, “You’ll be the first person I call.”
