Senator Dick Durbin on Afghanistan, Abortion, And COVID-19
It’s been a little more than a week since the last U-S Air Force C-17 took off from the airport in Kabul, ending this phase of America’s decades-long involvement with Afghanistan. We were joined by U.S. Senator Dick Durbin to talk about the United States' withdrawal from Afghanistan, as well as the new anti-abortion law in Texas, the COVID-19 surge around the country, and more.
