The Chaos In Afghanistan And How It May Impact Biden’s Domestic Agenda

River to River, hosted by Ben Kieffer

The U.S. House passed a $3.5 trillion dollar budget plan for social policies. On this episode of River to River, host Ben Kieffer and his guests discuss the divisions among Democrats and offer analysis of the evacuation in Afghanistan — how it’s likely to impact the relationships with U.S. allies and adversaries, how it may impact President Biden’s domestic agenda and how it may affect the midterm election.
