Donald Trump dropped the hammer on Joe Biden for this big lie about Afghanistan

Joe Biden is in full damage control mode over the national humiliation taking place in Afghanistan.

Biden is looking to blame anyone but himself.

And Donald Trump dropped the hammer on Joe Biden for this big lie about Afghanistan.

Biden returned to the White House from vacation for a 20-minute speech before fleeing to Camp David where he could hide from the public until later on in the week.

In the speech, Biden blamed the fall of Kabul on Donald Trump and refused to take responsibility for his administration’s inept planning.

“When I came into office, I inherited a deal that President Trump negotiated with the Taliban,” Biden stated. “Under his agreement, U.S. forces would be out of Afghanistan by May 1, 2021, a few months after I took office. U.S. forces had drawn down from roughly 15,500 American forces to 2,500 troops in the country. The Taliban was at its strongest militarily since 2001. The choice I had to make as your president was either to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the Taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season.”

Biden framed his speech as a binary choice between staying in Afghanistan forever and bringing the troops home.

But that wasn’t the choice.

In a statement released after the speech, Donald Trump ripped Biden for lying to the American people.

“It’s not that we left Afghanistan,” Trump wrote. “It’s the grossly incompetent way we left!”

Donald Trump also wanted to end the war in Afghanistan.

But the choice America faced was an orderly withdrawal where troops came home with honor or a humiliating repeat of the 1975 evacuation from Saigon as Vietnam fell to the communists.

Joe Biden tossed out Donald Trump’s plan in favor of trying to stage a photo op for the withdrawal centered on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Biden then repeatedly lied to the country about the capabilities of the Afghan army.

And as much as Joe Biden tried to duck responsibility for this fiasco, it is playing out on his watch.
