Trump criticizes Biden for Afghanistan ‘humiliation’

Aug 22, 2021: Former US President Donald Trump launched a series of attacks on President Joe Biden’s arrangements for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, which he called a humiliation of the biggest foreign policy in US history.

Trump, a Republican who has dangled the possibility of running again for president in 2024, has repeatedly blamed Biden, a Democrat, for Afghanistan’s fall to the militant Taliban, even though the US withdrawal that triggered the collapse was negotiated by his own administration.

“Biden’s departure from Afghanistan is a shocking demonstration of the utter incompetence of any nation’s leader, perhaps at any time,” Trump said at a rally with his supporters near Clemson, Alabama.

With the collapse of the Western-backed government and military, Taliban leaders are trying to hammer out the new government after their forces were swept away across the country after two decades of US leaders withdrew.

For his part, Biden has criticized the Afghan army for refusing to fight, has now condemned the ousted Afghan government, and announced that it has received a “bad deal” from Trump.

At the rally, Trump accused Biden of failing to carry out his administration’s plan and regretted leaving US personnel and equipment behind after the withdrawal.

“It’s not a withdrawl, it’s a matter of complete surrender,” Trump said.

Trump said the Taliban respected him and he suggested that if he had been in office, Afghanistan would not have been occupied by the Taliban immediately.

“We could have gotten out with honor,” Trump added. “We should have gotten out with honor. And instead, we got out with the exact opposite of honor.”
