Despite the facts, despite the INTERNATIONAL reports – this guy dared to go public with the statement that every single American that wanted to leave Afghanistan – was able to do so, and has flown out of the country of terror.

“Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is under fire for falsely claiming that “all” Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan “have come out.”

During an exchange with a reporter, Schumer seemingly told the lie while trying to defend the Biden administration’s disastrous handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal.”

Watch the video here:

A report from PolitiFact — a far-left fact-checking website — noted that Schumer’s claim was not true.

A spokesperson for Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has conceded that the New York Democrat falsely claimed that “all” Americans who wanted to leave Afghanistan “have come out.” Government officials say that fewer than 100 U.S. citizens and an unknown number of U.S. legal permanent residents, who want to leave Afghanistan are still in the country.

Schumer made his remarks in an interview with NewsChannel 9 at the state fair in Syracuse, New York, on Sept. 3. When asked about the political impact of the chaotic and deadly Afghanistan exit on the 2022 midterm elections, Schumer said he couldn’t predict what will happen.

Schumer, Sept. 3: They’ll be a job for congressional oversight. There always is. But at the moment, actually, I’m still focused on trying to get some of those brave Afghans out. The Americans, all of whom wanted to come out, have come out. Praise God. But there are a lot of Afghans who risked their lives for our soldiers and others. Many got out, some didn’t. And I’m still working on trying to get some of them out.

A particularly poignant story: There’s an orchestra of young people, co-ed, the Taliban hates them, they hate music, and they hate boys and girls performing. We tried to get them out. I spoke to Gen. Mark Milley about a number of different cases, including that one. They got up to the gate and the Taliban checkpoint turned them back.

So, now the hope is we can figure out a way — the State Department has worked out the borders are going to be safe to cross for three or four countries, and maybe they can get out that way. But, so right now the focus is still on trying to get some of these folks out, and then there’ll be time for oversight.

But the U.S. military did not evacuate all Americans who wanted to leave before the last soldier departed Afghanistan.

In his Aug. 31 speech on ending the 20-year war in Afghanistan, President Joe Biden said that the vast majority of Americans who wanted to get out had already been evacuated, with about “100 to 200 Americans” who intend to leave still in the country. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in an Aug. 30 speech that the figure of Americans remaining was “likely closer to 100.”

As we wrote in a Sept. 2 story, that means that Biden broke his Aug. 18 promise that U.S. forces would remain in Afghanistan “to get them all out” — even if it was necessary to stay beyond Aug. 31.

The figure for remaining Americans also did not include U.S. legal permanent residents, or green card holders, who wanted to be evacuated, State Department spokesman Ned Price confirmed in a Sept. 1 press briefing. Price said he was not able to provide “a firm figure as to how many LPRs may be in Afghanistan who wish to leave.”

A spokesperson for Schumer has since admitted that the senator’s claim was inaccurate.

“He misspoke and he regrets the confusion his comments have caused,” his spokesperson told us in an email. “He intended to say, as he has been saying, that the U.S. will get everyone out that wants to get out. And he will keep working with the Biden Administration to help everyone who wants to get out.”
