Former Vice President Biden addressed the United Nations and proclaimed that he has “turned the page” in regard to Afghanistan.
The President’s words come during a time when Americans are still stranded in the Taliban-controlled region of Afghanistan.
The Former Vice President went on to say, “We stand, in my view, at an inflection point in history. And I’m here today to share with you how the U.S. plans to stand with partners and allies in answering these questions.”
Biden astoundingly said, “I stand here today for the first time in 20 years with the United States not at war. We’ve turned the page.”
Biden closes his UN speech with this and gets big applause: “I stand here today for the first time in 20 years with the US not at war. We have turned the page … Ladies and gentlemen, we cannot afford to waste any more time. Let’s get to work. Let’s make our better future now.” pic.twitter.com/qM71Gw8iRj

Biden went on to assert, “Twenty years of conflict in Afghanistan, and as we close this period of relentless war we’re opening a new era of relentless diplomacy. Of using the power of our development aid to invest in new ways of lifting people up around the world.”
