Former President Donald Trump asked a single, solitary question as the country’s problems continue to pile up under the poor leadership of President Joe Biden, and just this one inquiry is enough to brutally dismantle the current administration.
What’s the question?
“Do you miss me yet?”
“Tragic mess in Afghanistan, a completely open and broken Border, Crime at record levels, oil prices through the roof, inflation rising, and taken advantage of by the entire world–DO YOU MISS ME YET?” Trump went on to say in a statement that was later tweeted by his current director of communications, Margo Martin.
I think it’s safe to say that for those of us who love the values our country was founded on and want someone in charge who solves problems instead of creates them, the answer is a resounding yes.
The president has been criticized for his plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan, though he has said his hands were tied due to the peace deal negotiated between the Trump administration and the Taliban.
However, as the Taliban sweeps across Afghanistan, even The New York Times said “there was still a way to pull out American troops while giving our Afghan partners a better chance to hold the gains we made with them over the last two decades.”
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reminded Fox News viewers Thursday that Trump had vowed the Taliban would not regain control of the embattled country while he was president.
“We had a conditions-based plan for how we would get our young men and women back home,” Pompeo went on to say. “We were going to get our soldiers back, and we were going to make sure that this kind of thing you are seeing happened today could not happen, which is a breeding ground for what could potentially be terror attacks coming from this very place.”
And then, of course, there’s the border crisis unfolding along the southern border between the U.S. and Mexico, as U.S. Customs and Border Protection has carried out 212,672 apprehensions just last month, which is a 21-year high. Add that to the fact COVID cases are also going back up and you can clearly see Biden’s doing a terrible job.
Trump’s latest statement came on a day in which it was reported that his fundraising committee has hired two political operatives familiar with campaigns in Iowa, the state that typically kicks off the race for the White House. The move signaled Trump’s interest in running in 2024.
