NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) — Three Republican presidential prospects have sharply condemned President Joe Biden's handling of the end of the war in Afghanistan. Attending a political event in Nebraska on Sunday, the three — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Vice President Mike Pence — rebuked the administration's conduct of the U.S. withdrawal as weak and as emboldening its adversaries.
