Former United States president Donald Trump slammed President Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from Afghanistan, saying it is “the greatest foreign policy humiliation in the history of the United States of America.”
“Biden’s botched exit from Afghanistan is the most astonishing display of gross incompetence by a nation’s leader, perhaps at any time,” Trump said at a boisterous rally packed with his supporters near Cullman, Alabama.
He said recent developments in Afghanistan are a ‘major failure’ of the current US administration’s foreign policy.
Targeting Biden for “allowing weakness in the White House,” Trump said, “This will go down as one of the great military defeats of all time, and it did not have to happen that way,” Trump said at the rally. “This was not a withdrawal; this was a total surrender, for no reason. “He surrendered our airbase, he surrendered our weapons, he surrendered our embassy,” he added
The ex-president continued to train his guns, mentioning that Biden’s exit is the most astonishing display of gross incompetence by a nation’s leader, perhaps at any time.
“It didn’t have to happen. All he [Biden] had to do was leave the soldiers until everyone was out, our citizens, the weapons, and then you bomb the hell out of the bases and say ‘bye bye,'” Trump said.
He also said the quick takeover of Afghanistan would not have happened if he was still in office.
