Although citizens are still stranded in Afghanistan, the man in charge of America, Joe Biden, plans to depart Washington, DC. He did this earlier in the day for a weekend getaway at the seaside.
The president and first lady are due to leave for his summer home in Rehoboth Beach at 12:20 p.m.; this is a trip that was frequently delayed in August as he wrestled with the catastrophic pullout from Afghanistan.
Biden’s Off to His Very Expensive Summer House
The Bidens bought the house for $2.74 million in 2017, but haven’t been back since June to celebrate First Lady Jill Biden’s birthday. One tends to wonder how this how was afforded on a US government salary. Don’t ask any questions!
Biden spoke on a webcast conference with Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Special Adviser for Global Warming John Kerry on Friday at the White House; this conference happened to discuss climate and energy issues.

In his presentation to world leaders, Biden claimed the time to take action is actually shortening (as the secretary has pointed out) to get to an end of the road. Apparently, according to Biden, we don’t have a huge amount of time.
The State Department acknowledged on Wednesday that Westerners were still trapped in Afghanistan; however, the State Department also claimed it was working with the insurgents to arrange commercial flights out of places like Mazar-e-Sharif.
In [the State Department’s] opinion, there is no justification why these aircraft, these persons, should not be able to escape, State Department spokesperson Ned Price told the media.
Blinken said on Monday that roughly 100 U.S. citizens were still attempting to escape the nation. During his appearance before the House Foreign Relations Committee, he revealed there have already been commercial flights around for some time and not permitted to leave.
According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, @JoeBiden's approval rating has tanked to its lowest point since he took office.

Biden’s Approval Rating Drops to All-time Lows
President Joe Biden’s approval ratings proceeded to plummet on Friday, according to a Reuters/Ipsos survey. Criticism mounted over his reaction to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic and his failed Afghanistan pullout.
Only 44% of respondents in the United States approved of Biden’s work in office, according to the poll. This poll was run countrywide this week and included more Democrats than Republicans.
The president’s approval has been steadily decreasing since mid-August. This is when Biden mishandled the departure from Afghanistan, causing the deaths of 13 American service personnel and the collapse of the Afghan government.
For the very first time in his presidency, Biden’s approval ratings regarding the Chinese coronavirus outbreak fell below 50%. Only roughly 48% of those polled approved of Biden’s Chinese coronavirus-related actions, contrasted with 46% who disapproved.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll was done digitally in the United States during September 15 and 16. There have been 1,005 individuals who responded, with 442 Democrats and 360 Republicans, hence creating a Democrat-leaning bias. The error margin for the poll was four points.
