Former President Trump blames Biden’s policy on Afghanistan
Donald Trump, the former US President, has slammed his successor, Joe Biden, over his decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan leading to the Taliban’s swift takeover of the country.
Recall that Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday fled the country as the Taliban entered the capital Kabul to take over the country.
As a result of the development, there were scenes of panic at Kabul airport on Monday as desperate residents, particularly foreigners, tried to flee to their various countries.
Reacting to the crisis, the former US President in a statement on Monday said, “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.”
Trump described Biden’s decision as a disgrace stating that the Taliban will now raise their flag over America’s Embassy in Kabul.
However, Joe Biden, on Monday, justified his decision to withdraw the troops stating that the US soldiers will not continue to die while the Afghans are not ready to fight.
