After Joe Biden and his minions on social media and Fox News Sunday tried to blame Donald Trump and Pompeo for the epic disaster in Afghanistan, former* president Trump FIRED BACK on Sunday. And it is SO good.
Trump isn’t about to let Biden off the hook, obviously, and neither should anyone else. The buck stops here, remember that? And it’s not like Biden has been sitting around not saying anything and taking ownership. He has been bragging on his Afghanistan withdrawal for weeks. Then he blew it and now people are dying.
Trump absolutely creams him over it.
Joe Biden gets it wrong every time on foreign policy, and many other issues. Everyone knew he couldn’t handle the pressure. Even Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, said as much. He ran out of Afghanistan instead of following the plan our Administration left for him—a plan that protected our people and our property, and ensured the Taliban would never dream of taking our Embassy or providing a base for new attacks against America. The withdrawal would be guided by facts on the ground.
After I took out ISIS, I established a credible deterrent. That deterrent is now gone. The Taliban no longer has fear or respect for America, or America’s power. What a disgrace it will be when the Taliban raises their flag over America’s Embassy in Kabul. This is complete failure through weakness, incompetence, and total strategic incoherence.
