Biden Speech Today LIVE – Joe Delivers Another Speech After National Security Address As ‘Taliban Billboards’ Spotted
JOE Biden gave another speech today after being portrayed as a terrorist on Taliban notice boards.
Biden spoke at the White House at 1:45 p.m. Thursday.
It comes as a former Pennsylvania politician launched a two-month “Make the Taliban Great Again” poster campaign berating the president as a terrorist for his handling of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
On Wednesday, Biden announced a new deal that will see the US and UK help Australia secure nuclear-powered submarines as part of a new trilateral security partnership.
The speech came after controversy in recent days in which some suggested that a “mute button” had been used when the president spoke earlier this week.
Biden was preparing to ask a member of the audience a question at an event on Monday when the live broadcast abruptly ended.
Republican Senator from Idaho Jim Risch then suggested on Tuesday that “someone in the White House has the power to press the button and cut off the president,” according to CNN, but Secretary of State Antony Blinken told Risch there was “no such person”. “

“I think probably in the form of more terrorist activity in the world and maybe in this country.”
“MAKE THE TALBIAN GROW AGAIN”
Wagner said Biden bears responsibility for taking away the freedoms that “young people have known since we landed in their country will be taken away now that the Taliban are in control.”

“I think the president thinks maybe he made a good decision, but I think he made a very bad decision.”
The signs were also part of his conversations with hundreds of veterans he met while serving in the Pennsylvania State Senate.
TALBIAN DISPLAY PANELS
A former Pennsylvania politician has launched a two-month “Making the Taliban Great Again” poster campaign that berates President Joe Biden as a terrorist for his handling of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Trump’s statement was released the same day President Biden and White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended General Milley’s âsecretâ calls.
Biden told reporters at the White House on Wednesday that he had “great faith” in General Milley.
Psaki also insisted that Biden had “complete confidence” in General Milley’s “leadership, patriotism and loyalty to our Constitution”.
She added: “I cannot speak about the experience of the former president with him or the opinion of the former president about him. But this president, this current president, who follows the constitution, who does not not foment an insurgency, which follows the rule of law has total confidence in President Milley and in the continuation of his functions.
“I don’t think the president is seeking advice from members of Congress who have stood idly by while the President of the United States and their party leader staged an insurgency and many of them are silent.”
