President Joseph Biden speaks at the White House on Aug 18, 2021, on the COVID-19 response and vaccination program. The same day he spoke to ABC News about Afghanistan.

The president, on an apparent defensive, told ABC News it was “a simple choice” to withdraw U.S. forces, and faulted the Afghan government and its military for not more forcibly defending the capital.
