Joe Biden is responsible for the worst international disaster in America’s history.
No president has ever failed so horribly.
Donald Trump slammed Joe Biden’s failure with these eight words.
All the chaos in Afghanistan could potentially have been avoided altogether if President Joe Biden had accepted the Taliban’s initial offer.
According to the Washington Post, the Taliban offered for the U.S. to have full control of Kabul and the airport.
The Biden administration declined that offer and asked only for the airport.
This led to a situation where Americans had to go through dangerous Taliban checkpoints to get to the airport and American military was forced to defend an unsecure civilian airport.
In these conditions a terrorist carried out a suicide attack that killed 13 U.S. service members and more than 200 people.
Former President Donald Trump blasted Biden saying “the country has never seen stupidity like this.”
Trump noted that for many months the Taliban had been too afraid to kill any Americans.
“They hadn’t killed one of our soldiers in many, many, many months; and they weren’t going to because they were afraid to,” Trump commented.
“We left $80 billion worth of equipment … I think our soldiers, even civilians, I think our soldiers are in tremendous danger. I think airplanes flying in and out of the airport are in tremendous danger. They have the best equipment, best rockets, best tanks and helicopters, apache helicopters, a lot of them,” Trump said.
Trump noted how insane it is to trust the Taliban.
“I hear General McKenzie say that the Taliban is going to protect us, the Taliban is the enemy. I dealt with the leader of the Taliban. This is not a very simple man, this is not a boy scout,” Trump said, “This is a tough, hardened person that has been fighting us for many years, and we are using them now to protect us? Look what happened with their protection, 100 people, much more, they say, than 100 people were killed, and 13 of our incredible military were killed, and that is just the beginning.” Trump continued.
Trump said that it was possible to get out of Afghanistan without abandoning American citizens and our allies.
“The biggest mistake we made in the history of our country was going into the Middle East, … [and now] we are leaving in disgrace. We could have left with great dignity. We could have left with safety. We could have taken everybody with us that we wanted, all of the great American citizens and people that helped us,” Trump said.
“This country has never seen stupidity like this, and our country is really in trouble. Our country is really in trouble, and it’s only going to get worse. What you are watching now is only going to get worse, it can only go one way. We had something where they did not get near us, they were petrified of us,” Trump said. “He botched the plan and took the military out first. Now it is a very sad day for our country into great embarrassment — beyond embarrassment, it is a very dangerous day for our country.”
