Vice President Kamala Harris tweeted Monday night that leaving Afghanistan was the “right decision,” despite the Taliban’s takeover having a devastating impact on women and girls in the region.
“Would love to hear from the ‘First Woman Vice President’ on how her reckless, naive actions will cause most harm to Afghan women,” Kellyanne Conway, who served as counselor to the president under former President Trump, tweeted.
Fox News contributor Leo Terrell pointed out: “Vice President Kamala Harris: The women in Afghanistan will be sold into slavery and rape: Any comment?”
A few hours later, Harris used the official vice president account to put out a statement supporting Biden after his remarks on the Afghanistan crisis.
“For two decades, our courageous servicemembers put their lives on the line in Afghanistan. We will always be grateful—and proud,” Harris said. “Ending U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan is the right decision.”
In April, Harris bragged to CNN’s Dana Bash that she was the “last person in the room” when Biden made “big decisions,” including pulling out of Afghanistan.
“And you feel comfortable?” Bash asked at the time.
“I do,” Harris said. “And I’m going to add to that. This is a president who has an extraordinary amount of courage. He is someone who I have seen over and over again make decisions based on what he truly believes — based on his years of doing this work and studying these issues, what he truly believes is the right thing to do.”
“And I’m going to tell you something about him,” Harris added. “He is acutely aware that it may not be politically popular or advantageous for him personally. It’s really something to see. And I wish that the American public could see sometimes what I see, because, ultimately — and the decision always rests with him, but I have seen him over and over again make decisions based exactly on what he believes is right, regardless of what maybe the political people tell him is in his best selfish interest.”
