Former President Donald Trump launched a heavy attack against President Joe Biden and his administration on Thursday following the horrific attack at the international airport located in Kabul, Afghanistan, which resulted in the death of 13 American service men.
The former president stated during an interview that he would have pulled the troops out too, but the way Joe Biden did things was completely backwards and has resulted in American citizens being left behind, along with our Afghan allies and the “greatest” military equipment on the planet.
“It’s so sad … just [an] embarrassment, the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to our country — we look like fools all over the world,” Trump stated during his interview . “We are weak, we are pathetic — we are being led by people that have no idea what they are doing.”

“This is the dumbest thing — I think it was the dumbest move anybody’s ever made, perhaps in the history of our country, allowing this to happen — taking the military out and then say, ‘Oh, we hope to get the people out,'” he continued.
“You get the military out last,” the former president explained. “A child would have understood that. How could they have done this to our country?”
Trump compared Biden’s handling of the Taliban to that of his administration.
“We had the Taliban so under control, they would not have moved without getting our approval. We had an incredible agreement. They weren’t killing our soldiers,” Trump then told the Fox News network. “We had them totally under control. Every time we saw movement, we’d hit them with an F-18, and the movement stopped.”
Trump also released a statement Thursday night addressing the nation’s loss of 13 American service members.
“They died as American heroes, and our nation will honor their memory forever. I want to express my deepest condolences to the families of those we have lost today,” Trump went on to say. “In addition, our hearts are with the families of all the innocent civilians who died, and with the many men, women and children who were terribly injured in this act of evil.”

“This tragedy should never have taken place — it should never have happened,” he proclaimed. “And it would not have happened if I were your president.”
Trump ended by telling all the veterans of the war in Afghanistan that their sacrifices were not made in vain and asking viewers to continue to “pray for the safe return of all U.S. citizens and soldiers from Afghanistan in the coming days.”
Trump nailed this one. Biden’s incompetence and the fact that he appears to be suffering from some kind of cognitive decline are negatively impacting how the rest of the world views our nation.
Not to mention the fact Biden has basically been capitulating to the Taliban’s demands in order to appease them, including giving them a list of names of Americans still in the country.
This is pure idiocy.
