Reuters reported a leaked transcript of a July call that shows President Biden pressured Afghan President Ghani to "change the perception" that the Taliban was winning ahead of Ghani's retreat flight to Qatar.
"I am not going to go into the details of a private conversation," Psaki said. She said earlier this week that trusting Ghani not to flee the country is one mistake President Biden will learn from.
