Even after leaving office, Donald Trump has remained popular for his nonsensical statements and profound bigotry. This time around, he’s back and running to call out President Biden for his inability to tackle the Afghanistan issue.
The former President sent a message to his followers, telling Biden to “resign in disgrace” after the Taliban’s swift takeover of Afghanistan. In an email, a livid Trump mentioned a myriad of different problems that arose under the reign of Biden, including the raging pandemic, Border fiasco, destructed economy, and the loss of Afghanistan itself.
He continued propagating the old claim of his- Biden only won the presidency through a well-devised and cleverly executed election fraud. Given this information, the resignation shouldn’t be “a big deal”, according to Trump.
While Biden stuck to his promise of bringing the troops back before September 11, the Taliban continued to swarm the areas of Afghanistan, including Kabul itself. Trump has made it a point to bash Biden for his efforts or lack thereof inefficiently untangling the political mess.
On Sunday, he issued an additional statement rebuking the Biden administration for withdrawing U.S troops from
Afghanistan. ‘Tragic mess in Afghanistan, a completely open and broken Border, Crime at record levels, oil prices through the roof, inflation rising, and taken advantage of by the entire world—DO YOU MISS ME YET?
read the email.
Last year, Donald Trump had made a conscious effort to negotiate a contract that incorporates the conditions surrounding a seamless U.S withdrawal. However, the speed of the Taliban takeover has undoubtedly left the Biden administration flat-footed.
By Sunday evening, the Taliban had taken over Kabul and Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar has already been elected as the head of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. After the election and due process, Baradar spoke to the people and congratulated them on this “huge victory.”
“I also want to advise and demand from all the mujahideen (Taliban fighters) that we have reached a situation that is unexpected and unique, this happened with the help of God and it must not make us arrogant”, reiterated Baradar.
A representative for the Taliban’s political team affirmed that the war is truly over in Afghanistan and the new rule will be made clear soon. Another spokesman told Al-Jazeera that they will provide safety and security for all its citizens. But as the night went on, conditions grew worse and many residents even reported looting in the city.
As far as President Biden’s response is concerned, he mocked Donald Trump for the takeover of Afghanistan, declaring his integral role in leaving the group “in the strongest position militarily since 2001.”
