BREAKING: The White House says it will now send as many as 5,000 U.S. troops to help evacuate Americans from Kabul, Afghanistan. Retired military leaders are calling the situation in Afghanistan catastrophic.
Biden announced in July that US troops would fully withdraw from Afghanistan by August 31. The President has remained steadfast in his decision to withdraw, telling reporters earlier this week that he did not regret it and it was time for Afghans to “fight for themselves.”
President Trump issued a statement tonight:
“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.
The withdrawal would be guided by facts on the ground.After I took out ISIS, I established a credible deterrent.
That deterrent is now gone.
The Taliban no longer has fear or respect for America, or America’s power. What a disgrace it will be when the Taliban raises their flag over America’s Embassy in Kabul.
This is complete failure through weakness, incompetence, and total strategic incoherence.”
