President Biden was heckled over the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan during a visit to Manville, N.J., on Tuesday to survey damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ida.

“My best friend died in 2011 in Afghanistan for what?” a heckler shouts in a video posted on Twitter by Washington Post reporter Zach Purser Brown. Biden was touring damage in the village of Manville, which experienced flooding from the remnants of Hurricane Ida, at the time.

“It’s sad that America has come to this.”

The heckler, who was not identifiable in the footage, continued to shout that Biden left Americans behind in the country. A White House pool report said the heckler appeared to be standing in his yard with his family.

“He will leave you behind, you guys, protecting him,” the heckler yelled. A woman joined in, shouting “Leave no Americans behind!” The initial heckler then named what he said was his best friend, buried in Arlington Cemetery after being killed in Afghanistan.
