Trump fights back at Blinken after he said Biden ‘inherited’ Afghanistan from previous admin

Donald Trump has fired back at Anthony Blinken after the Secretary of State tried to blame the former president for Afghanistan’s chaotic exit last month.

Trump sent a statement to supporters of his Save America PAC, blaming both US leaders and now former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

“The so-called leaders of our country have gone mad!” said Trump.

Former President Donald Trump fired back at Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in a statement Monday after Blinken tried to blame Trump for last month’s chaotic exit from the war in Afghanistan.

“The inept Afghan government, led by corrupt President Ghani, has released 5,000 prisoners — not the Trump administration,” Trump added. ‘State Secretary Blinken is doing everything he can to make the most clumsy withdrawal in history look at least acceptable. That will never happen.’

In testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Blinken said the Biden administration had “inherited an agreement” made by the Trump administration “to remove all remaining U.S. troops by May 1 this year.”

“As part of that agreement,” Blinken said, “the previous administration urged the Afghan government to release 5,000 Taliban prisoners, including some senior war commanders. Meanwhile, it reduced our own force to 2,500 troops. In return, the Taliban agreed to stop attacking the US and partner forces and refrain from threatening Afghanistan’s major cities.”

In testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Blinken said the Biden administration had “inherited an agreement” made by the Trump administration “to remove all remaining U.S. troops by May 1 this year.”

Blinken insisted during Monday’s hearing that the Biden administration had “inherited a deadline” but “had not inherited a plan.”

Biden moved the withdrawal date from May to September 11 – the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania that eventually led to the Afghan War – and pushed the deadline to the end of August.

In a statement released earlier Monday, Trump said withdrawing from Afghanistan was “pathetic and incompetent” and added that “it will be a long time before we get our reputation back.”

In a statement released Monday, Trump said the withdrawal from Afghanistan was “pathetic and incompetent.”

Trump said the Biden administration was not only inept, but that they would end up costing the country millions by paying the Taliban to help set up their new government.

“Our country is much more susceptible to attacks by outside terrorist groups than ever before,” he said. Our enemies around the world are inspired by what just happened in Afghanistan – first the removal of the military and our ‘gift’ of $85 billion in military equipment. Just nine months ago the United States was seen as strong, and now we are seen as weak and stupid.”

Democrats have largely sided with Republicans in criticizing the withdrawal, though several have agreed with Blinken’s shifting blame to Trump.

Trump has publicly criticized leaders of both parties, past and present, in the past week.

The former president went after George W. Bush after his speech at the World Trade Center Memorial on Saturday, alluding to the deadly Jan. 6 riot in which violent Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

“So interesting to watch former President Bush, who is responsible for getting us into the quicksand of the Middle East (and then not winning!) while lecturing us that terrorists from the ‘right’ are a bigger problem than those from abroad who hate America, and who are now pouring into our country,” Trump said shortly after noon on Monday.

“If so, why was he willing to spend trillions of dollars and be responsible for the deaths of perhaps millions of people? He shouldn’t be lecturing us on anything.’

He continued with Bush’s legacy, citing the collapse of the Twin Towers that cost more than 2,600 people that day.

“The World Trade Center crashed while on watch. Bush led a failed and uninspiring presidency. He shouldn’t be lecturing anyone!’ Trump wrote.
