A former Pennsylvania state senator told Fox News on Wednesday that he installed about 15 billboards locally with a photo of the president Joe Biden in military gear next to it of the message "Making the Taliban Great Again.
Scott Wagner, a Republican who represented a district comprising York County from 2014 to 2018, said in a email that he had "multiple reasons " for sharing the message across Pennsylvania.
"President Biden's hasty withdrawal made us laugh at the world," he wrote. "The Taliban openly state that they drove the United States out of Afghanistan - they are now very emboldened.

Wagner added that the freedoms "that young people have experienced since we landed in their country will be taken away now that the Taliban are in control.
He also said he had met hundreds of veterans during his time in the Pennsylvania State Senate.
"What do we say to families who have lost loved ones in the Middle East - the country for which these people served and died left Afghanistan with its tail between its legs, "he told Fox News. "It seems President Biden was determined to rush out of Afghanistan - his ego and lack of information is going to prove very bad for the United States.
Wagner says the billboards will be for two months.
