(PresidentialWire.com)- Both former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence released blistering statements this week condemning the Biden Administration for bungling the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Trump released two statements on Sunday after Kabul fell.
In the first statement, Trump said that what Biden did with Afghanistan would “go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history.”
In the second statement, President Trump minced no words, announcing that it was time for Biden “to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen in Afghanistan.” He also hammered Biden for his bungling response to COVID, the crisis at the southern border, the obliteration of US energy independence and the crippling of the US economy. And, of course, Trump closed his statement by saying Biden “wasn’t elected legitimately in the first place.”
For his part, former Vice President Pence was more on-point. In a tweet Sunday afternoon, Pence called the White House’s withdraw from Afghanistan “disastrous,” adding that what was done “dishonors the memory” of the Americans “who gave the last full measure of devotion” as well as those who “bravely served” in Afghanistan over the past twenty years.
Biden and the White House have attempted to place the blame for this disastrous, chaotic scramble for the exits on President Trump. However, reality doesn’t back up their excuse-making.
In a story on August 18, the National Pulse reported that the State Department’s “Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau,” which was put in place to provide medical, diplomatic and logistical support to Americans overseas was paused by the Biden State Department earlier this year.
The National Pulse reached out to President Trump about this news and he said that his administration prioritized keeping Americans safe while Biden has left them behind. Trump also said that canceling this program before effecting the withdrawal “is beyond disgraceful.”
Trump reiterated to the National Pulse that his administration’s plan for withdrawal was “conditions-based and perfect,” adding that “nobody would have even known we left.” Repeating the sentiment of his Sunday statements, Trump added that this bungled withdrawal “is perhaps the greatest embarrassment to our Country in History.”
