Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan put the Taliban back in power and left thousands of Americans stranded behind enemy lines.
But Joe Biden still doesn’t have a plan to get the Americans out before the August 31 deadline.
And you’ll be infuriated over this outrageous ultimatum Joe Biden just gave to the Americans stuck in Afghanistan.
Right now, no one really knows exactly how many Americans are stuck in Afghanistan.
According to some reports, there could be as many as 40,000 Americans trapped with no way to get out of the country.
But even though he doesn’t have a plan to get the Americans out before the August 31 deadline, Joe Biden did give the Americans stranded in Afghanistan an ultimatum that will make your blood boil.
If they hope to win a seat on a flight out of Afghanistan, Americans will need to cough up $2,000 for the flight.
State Dept's Overseas Security Advisory Council said Aug. 14: "Repatriation flights are not free, & passengers will be required to sign a promissory loan agreement & may not be eligible to renew their U.S. passports til the loan is repaid. Cost may be $2,000 or more per person." https://t.co/K9bb3xtoYE pic.twitter.com/2pPo3n64dJ

After reports surfaced of Biden’s insane ultimatum, the American people were outraged over the fact that our own government would put a price on the lives and safety of its citizens.
In response to the outcry, the Biden administration claimed it waived the $2,000 evacuation fee.
However, according to the Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy, who broke the original story, even though Biden claimed to waive the fees, the government’s webform to request evacuation still demanded Americans promise to pay the government a $2,000 repatriation fee.
“Just checked again this AM & despite State Dept spox saying yesterday that ‘we have no intention of seeking any reimbursement from those fleeing Afghanistan’, the required ‘U.S. Embassy Kabul Repatriation Assistance Request 2021’ form still makes you promise to pay up to $2,000+,” Dunleavy reported.
The truth is, everything about Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has been a complete disaster.
But charging Americans $2,000 to get out of the country will be the final straw for most people.
And Biden’s approval ratings are expected to fall even faster.
