Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today released the following statement on the press briefing on Afghanistan by Biden's National Security Advisor.

"This afternoon, President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor stood at the White House podium and refused to commit to safely evacuating all Americans in Afghanistan.

"This is unacceptable and unAmerican. 

"Every single American must be safely evacuated as quickly as possible from Afghanistan given the deteriorating crisis due to Joe Biden’s failed leadership. 

"The President of the United States must immediately address this shocking statement from the White House podium and publicly commit to using every military resource to evacuate every single American out of harm's way."
