LIVE: Biden delivers remarks on Afghanistan

WASHINGTON (WHEC) — Watch live coverage as President Joe Biden delivers remarks on Afghanistan and efforts to evacuate Americans and their allies.

According to an administration official, Biden plans to stick with his Aug. 31 deadline for completing the U.S.-led evacuation from Afghanistan.

The decision reflects in part the U.S. military’s concern about heightened security threats to the massive airlift that began 10 days ago.

Biden is now expected to speak at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Watch the NBC News special report it in the player below. Mobile users, click here.
