(Washington, DC) -- President Biden will announce the way forward in Afghanistan tomorrow. He is expected to announce plans to remove all remaining U.S. forces from the war-torn nation by the 20th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 attacks this fall. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the President has long-believed that the U.S. has been in Afghanistan for too long. There are roughly three-thousand American troops in Afghanistan. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said, "Precipitously withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan is a grave mistake."

McConnell called it a "retreat in the face of an enemy that has not yet been vanquished and an abdication of American leadership." Former President Trump set a deadline for the full withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan by May 1st.
