Trump: Thanks to ‘Weak’ Biden, Taliban No Longer Fears or Respects America
'He gets it wrong every time on foreign policy'
Donald Trump torched Democrat Joe Biden following news that the Taliban has reclaimed huge swathes of Afghanistan.
In a statement, Trump said, “Biden gets it wrong every time on foreign policy."
Trump also warned that because of Biden's weakness, the Taliban no longer fears or respects America.
He noted in his statement that “everyone knew” Biden would not have performed under pressure and has gotten it wrong in making foreign policy decisions.
Trump noted that “even Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, said as much.”
He added that Biden “ran out of Afghanistan instead of following the plan our Administration left for him.”
The “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."
"The withdrawal would be guided by facts on the ground.”
Trump highlighted his strategy as the president put up deterrents after defeating ISIS.
“After I took out ISIS, I established a credible deterrent.”
He added, “That deterrent is now gone.”
“The Taliban no longer has fear or respect for America or America’s power,” he continued.
Trump then concluded:
“What a disgrace it will be when the Taliban raises their flag over America’s Embassy in Kabul,” noting that “this is [a] complete failure through weakness, incompetence, and total strategic incoherence.”
On Saturday, Biden announced his decision to redeploy 5,000 American troops to Afghanistan to complete the safe evacuation of American personnel.
American officials were told to evacuate the embassy in Kabul following the destruction of any sensitive information and equipment.
According to reports, Taliban terrorists have been using weapons the Americans supplied the government to protect themselves with, using them to take over cities.
“Some of that weaponry is now being brazenly paraded ahead of the US troops’ 9/11 withdrawal deadline by insurgents who have maintained ties with Al Qaeda, the group behind the 2001 terror attacks,” France24 reported.
On Friday, a senior Biden official admitted they were “powerless” to protect young girls and women in Afghanistan from the Taliban.
Deputy Assistant Secretary in the State Department Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs Molly Montgomery posted on Twitter:
“Woke up with a heavy heart, thinking about all the Afghan women and girls I worked with during my time in Kabul."
“They were the beneficiaries of many of the gains we made, and now they stand to lose everything."
“We empowered them to lead, and now we are powerless to protect them,” she wrote.
Neon Nettle reported the terrorist group was “going door-to-door” and abducting girls as young as 12 years old to become “sex slaves” for jihadi fighters.
