Trump launches a scathing attack on Biden - The catastrophe is beginning to unfold in AfghanistanFormer US President Donald Trump launched a scathing attack on current President Joe Biden, against the backdrop of what he described as a “disaster that has begun to unfold” in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

In an interview with “Fox News”, Trump said that Biden had humiliated the United States more than any other president in history.

He considered that Biden’s decision to hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan exceeded what former US President Jimmy Carter did in 1979, during the betting crisis at Washington’s embassy in Iran.

Trump said, “Our entry into the Middle East was the worst decision in the history of the United States of America. I know the Bush family will be angry, but that’s the truth. We’ve made the Middle East worse than it was 20 years ago. We lost two trillion dollars and they lost millions of lives.” innocent.”

Trump issued a statement, on Sunday, calling for Biden to resign after the Taliban movement took control of the Afghan capital, Kabul, accusing Biden of mismanagement in other files such as the Corona pandemic.

After leaving the White House last January, former US President Donald Trump has kept a low profile, appearing only in a few interviews and issuing several press releases.

But the interview with “Fox News” seemed the most important in light of the acceleration of events in Afghanistan.

“It’s a terrible time for our country,” the former president said. “I don’t think that in all the years our country has been so humiliated. I don’t know what you call it, a military defeat or a psychological defeat.”

“Nothing like what happened (in Afghanistan) has happened,” he added.

Commenting on the tragic events at Kabul Airport, he stated: “I watched the giant cargo plane, which some tried to cling to in an attempt to get out of Afghanistan because of their terrible fear (as I saw) those who fell from the plane from a height of 600 metres.”

“No one has ever seen anything like this before,” he added, noting that what happened in Kabul went beyond what happened in the famous evacuation flights in Saigon, Vietnam in 1975.

Trump said that he warned the head of the Taliban’s political bureau, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, during the famous call that brought the two men together last year that the United States would respond tenfold if an American was harmed or the militants encroached on certain areas.

The former US president considered that what happened in Afghanistan, where the Taliban seized power in days, as a result of a deal with the local authorities, at a time when the Americans and Westerners were stranded.

Trump revealed that he did not trust at all the fugitive Afghan president, Ashraf Ghani and his government, considering that it was corrupt and only sought money.
