It would've been the exact opposite, they feared me - Trump says Taliban took advantage of Biden being president to take over Afghanistan



Former US President, Donald Trump has lambasted President Biden over his chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, saying the Taliban's take over of Afghanistan didn't happen because the withdrawal plan was bad but because the president in charge of the troop withdrawal was.



"It would've been the exact opposite," Trump told Premiere Networks hosts Clay Travis and Buck Sexton when asked what would have happened if he was in power.


"We were in perfect shape. Abdul – he's now the head guy – he was the one I was dealing with [when] I said there would be hell to pay if you touch any American soldiers or Americans," Trump said, referring to Taliban leader and now de facto Afghan leader Abdul Ghani-Baradar.


Trump said Biden incidentally let that idea slip from his tongue when he noted during public remarks that there hadn't been any U.S. service members killed in 18 months because of the deal struck between the two sides.



"They didn't meet some of them (conditions) so we bombed the hell out of them," Trump said about the Taliban reportedly violating parts of the deal.Latest Post
