Robert Gibbs, President Barack Obama’s press secretary, said it was “a moment for Biden to see him not as the Democratic President but as the President of the United States of America”.

“People are skeptical about what they have seen in the Afghanistan case in the last few weeks. It’s time for Biden to rearrange everything. To remind people what it means to be Commander-in-Chief and what it means to be the leader of the country on such an important occasion.
