Former President Donald Trump spoke out on Tuesday once again to slam Joe Biden for his handling of the disaster in Afghanistan. As per usual, Trump held nothing back with his words.
“Biden surrendered Afghanistan to terrorists and left thousands of Americans for dead by pulling out the Military before our citizens. Now we are learning that out of the 26,000 people who have been evacuated, only 4,000 are Americans,” Trump said in a statement. “You can be sure the Taliban, who are now in complete control, didn’t allow the best and the brightest to board these evacuation flights.”
“Instead, we can only imagine how many thousands of terrorists have been airlifted out of Afghanistan and into neighborhoods around the world,” Trump added. “What a terrible failure. NO VETTING. How many terrorists will Joe Biden bring to America? We don’t know.”

Trump has slammed Biden multiple times over the past few days over the Afghanistan situation. Last Friday, he released a brief statement that simply said, “Leaving Americans behind for death is an unforgivable dereliction of duty, which will go down in infamy.”
“First you bring out all of the American citizens,” Trump said. “Then you bring out ALL equipment. Then you bomb the bases into smithereens,” Trump said in another statement the day before. “AND THEN YOU BRING OUT THE MILITARY. You don’t do it in reverse order like Biden and our woke Generals did.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity host agreed with Trump, calling on Biden to resign from the presidency if “he’s not up to do the job.” He added that Biden and his administration have become “totally detached and out to lunch” and arguing their response to the crisis in Afghanistan is a ‘dereliction of duty.”
“This is, by every definition, a dereliction of duty,” Hannity said. “If Joe Biden is not up for this job. Now, we’ve joked about it. We’ve kidded about it. We’ve shown you the video, and then we stop laughing about it because it’s not funny, because seeing Joe Biden weak and frail and a cognitive mess is not good for the United States.”
