Trump singles out Biden for leaving Afghanistan, “the greatest foreign humiliation in US history”

Former US President Donald Trump has charged the current president, Joe Biden, for the withdrawal from Afghanistan after the takeover of Kabul by the Taliban and has defined it as “the greatest foreign policy humiliation in the history of the United States.”

“This will remain as one of the great military defeats of all time and it did not have to be that way,” Trump said Saturday during a political rally before thousands of supporters in Cullman, Alabama. “This has not been a withdrawal, but an absolute surrender and without any reason,” he argued.

With this withdrawal, Biden has shown “weakness in the White House” to the point that “Vietnam seems like a masterclass in strategy compared to the Joe Biden catastrophe.” “Our air base has surrendered, it has surrendered our weapons, our Embassy has surrendered,” he pointed out, according to the US press.

Trump has recalled the billions of dollars that the weapons and material that have been abandoned, in the hands of the Taliban, such as 600,000 assault rifles, some 2,000 armored vehicles and 40 aircraft such as Black Hawk helicopters cost.

“It didn’t have to be this way. All (Biden) had to do was hold the troops until everything was gone: our citizens, the guns, … and then you bomb the bases and say ‘bye, bye'” , he has argued.

Trump has acknowledged that after 20 years of conflict, his government was preparing the exit from Afghanistan, but a “dignified” exit. “It will be September 11 soon and we are going to have the Taliban flag flying at the Embassy because of Biden,” he said.

He has also referred to his government’s negotiations with the Taliban, whom he has highlighted as “great negotiators” and “tough combatants.” “With me in charge, the Taliban would never even have dreamed of capturing our base or parading with American weapons,” he stressed.
