Democrat President Joe Biden was the target of a stream of harsh criticism coming from Former President Donald Trump this past Saturday concerning Biden’s extremely controversial abandonment of Afghanistan, which saw to the deaths of 13 U.S. soldiers and the abandoning of numerous Americans in the country.
“For the great people of our Country, this is very a sad day,” Trump stated at the start. “September 11th represents great sorrow for our Country. Many things were displayed that day, including most importantly the bravery of our police, fire, and first responders of every kind. The job they did was truly unbelievable. We love them, and we thank them.”
The horrendously chaotic and deadly retreat from Afghanistan causes the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, this year, to take on an even stronger meaning than normal. Originally, the Biden administration had settled on September 11th as the final deadline for when U.S. forces would be removing themselves from the country but was then changed to a shorter deadline of August 31st. Biden’s disastrous pullout from Afghanistan was highlighted with disturbing images and events such as people attempting to leap onto the already moving planes, people falling out of the leaving planes, the deaths of 13 U.S. soldiers being killed in a targeted terrorist attack, multiple hundreds of Americans being abandoned in the country after the U.S. Military left, and what seems like an innocent family being killed in a drone strike.
“It is also a sad time for the way our war on those that did such harm to our Country ended last week,” Trump said in his announcements. “The loss of 13 great warriors and the many more who were wounded should never have happened. Overall, 250 people were killed in Afghanistan last week and so many more were seriously injured.”
Trump then went on to speak about the multiple billions of dollars worth of abandoned military equipment that was left for the Taliban as a result of the national Afghan military surrendered and collapsed in on itself, which took place due to the fact that, as The Wall Street Journal stated, the U.S. stopped providing air support.
“The leader of our Country was made to look like a fool and that can never be allowed to happen,” continued the Former President. “It was caused by bad planning, incredible weakness, and leaders who truly didn’t understand what was happening. This is the 20th year of this war and should have been a year of victory, honor, and strength. Instead, Joe Biden and his inept administration surrendered in defeat.”
“We will live on, but sadly our Country will be wounded for a long period of time,” concluded Trump. “We will struggle to recover from the embarrassment this incompetence has caused. Do not fear, however. America will be made great again!”
